Our Interview Process
Scientifically Designed To Ensure You Can Do The Job And Be Great At It.
Skills Based & Future Meta Skills
We need to be every selective of who and what we put our energy into. We believe there is no point hiring you for a job you can't do or be great at. It will frustrate you as much as it will frustrate us. Sooner or later, we will have to let you go as you will become a victim of your own self-deception. This will be because you either can't do or can't step up to the evolving expectations of the job. Not everybody is willing to put in the effort to be the best version of themselves they can be and has the meta skills the future desires. We've learnt the hard way.
A Long Term Professional & Personal Development Opportunity
Ideally, we want to give you an opportunity to do at least 10 years of great work, without having to jump from one job to another, and to be very handsomely rewarded for it. So, we have designed a very thorough process, involving multiple tests, to fully appreciate what you can bring to the table today and potentially tomorrow. Each interview is designed to ensure your suitability for the job and give you some indication of what it takes for you to be great.
An Equal Opportunity To Showcase Your Talents
Inequality, is still rife globally. We strongly feel everybody should have an equal opportunity to showcase how good they are and can be, quantitatively and qualitatively, and be hired on merit. This is regardless of race, ethnicity, ancestry, clan, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, citizenship, marital status, disability or even where in the world you are. For seriously talented professionals, a CusJo interview is a fun and challenging experience. It shows you where you stand. If you are not up to it however, don't understand the logic and the process of how progressive organisations hire, it will be foreign to you. The best however find it to be a true pleasure. Our interview process is scientifically designed. It benchmarks your technical and English proficiency to separate you from others, and earns you a technical screener. If you pass your technical screener, we'll afford you a psychometric and product aptitude test, so a purposeful job interview can be scheduled for you. All the steps in the interview process are an opportunity for you to showcase how much better you are in relation to other good candidates.
At CusJo, We Have One Aim In View. To Be The World's Most Innovative Enterprise Survey Platform - Loved By Our Customers And You.
So Show Us You Have What It Takes Professionally & Personally By Excelling During Your Tests & Interview. Come Be A Part Of Something Great.
1. Why Have You Made The CusJo Interview Process So Transparent?
We've made our interview process transparent because we realise you as a job seeker are functioning in the dark as you go from company to company. We feel your frustration. You want to put your best foot forward, and put in the time to be fairly evaluated but you do not know if the company will appreciate your effort and if they will evaluate you fairly on it.
With CusJo we want you to know every step of the process so you can prepare yourself psychologically as well as do the ground work to do well enough to get hired.
2. You've Mentioned Structured Interviews A Few Times. What Is That?
Structured Interviews are a method that requires using the same interviewing methods to assess all candidates applying for the same job. Research shows well defined Structured Interviewing is predictive of a candidate's performance, even for jobs that are themselves unstructured.
In Structured Interviewing candidates for the same job answer the same interview questions and are graded on the same scale. This makes hiring decisions consistent, and surfaces the best candidate for the job. It also allows an organisation to fairly analyse if a candidate is worth the compensation they are seeking and who is the best value and fit candidate.
3. How Long Is the Interview Process And How Fast Will I Be Hired?
How fast you get hired at CusJo is entirely dependent on you.
When we put up a job post it means we are ready to hire immediately. Complete what you are asked to do fast and well, and you could get hired within 7 days. Take things slow and the process takes longer or worse still you risk someone else filling the job.
4. How Long Is The Typical CusJo Interview Process?
Here is the average length of the interview process in other top organisations compared to CusJo. Typically the higher the position you apply for and the higher your salary expectations the longer your process is likely to take for obvious reasons.
CusJo: 1-3 months, with 2-5 interviews.
NHS: 12-18 months, with 4-6 interviews.
Google: 2-4 months (was up to 9 months), with minimum 4 interviews.
Blue Origins: 1-2 months, with 4-6 interviews.
Apple: 1-3 months, with 4-8 interviews.
Facebook: 3-9 months, with 5-10 interviews.
5. Why Are There So Many Steps In Your Interview Process?
Actually there aren't. We've kept things down to the minimum and shown the entire process transparently. Every step of the interview process is important. We don't make you or our staff do things that are irrelevant. We value your and our time too much for that.
6. How Do You Negotiate Salary?
We don't. We get a sense as to your present salary, and will ask you about your expected salary which should be 10-20% above it. We then calculate your real financial cost to the company, and then evaluate you fairly in relation to what you ask. If what you bring to the table does not match up to it, we can't hire you. So, when we ask you what is your expected salary know that if your expectations are unrealistic you sabotage your chances of being hired by CusJo. And anyway, the real reward is your share options and not your salary.
7. What Are Some Things I Should Be Mindful Of?
There are probably too many to mention. One of the behaviours we have observed that is detrimental to candidates getting hired at CusJo is calibrating their expected salary at CusJo to future increments promised or expected at their present organisation that are above the 10-20% range. The two don't correlate. When we assess candidates based on over their overambitious expectations, they invariably fall far short, as their own competencies and capabilities do not match up to their own expectations. In cases as such, we usually recommend the candidate remain in their present organisation, and reapply after they have received the said increment.
8. Why Was My Interview Cancelled Or Cut Short After It Was Arranged?
This does not happen often. It is likely to be predominantly for one of the following reasons: a) your information was not accurate or not filled in fully ahead of your pre-screening or interview forms and the interviewer could not make an assessment till you completed it, b) you did not turn up on time for your interview, did not inform us in advance and the interviewer scheduled another interview, and/or c) your interview was a group interview, you were late and it was no longer appropriate to add you into it.
Outside of that, from time-to-time but exceedingly rarely, we do reschedule interviews due to unforeseen circumstances. But we make it a point of informing candidates in advance. We expect the same from you, to inform us in advance if you can't make an interview.
