The interview process was new for both the Direct Air team and the interviewees, being conducted virtually. It was the first time all the new recruits had undergone an interview in this format.
Nemo’s explained how his experience was made really easy by Direct Air as all information needed for the call was provided. Nemo felt he was never left in the dark during any stage because he was being kept up to date via either calls or emails.
Nemo was also able to visit the office in order to familiarise himself with the environment he’d be working in, as well as some of his co-workers (socially distanced of course!). He explained this made the process feel a little more like normal… apart from masks, hand sanitiser and resisting the urge to shake people’s hands!
Gavin actually found and applied for his role via LinkedIn. Following a successful interview, he attended a trial day. Gavin found this opportunity valuable because he was able to understand all aspects of the role he was applying for. He could also understand how well Direct Air have adjusted to COVID restrictions within the workplace. Gavin was grateful that Direct Air were so accommodating to his new learning rather than feeling as though he’d been thrown in the deep end.
