Jobs at Agoda / Interview Process Guideline

Hello world! This is Maewnam’s adventure in Bangkok! This article is mainly about the job application process of Agoda

Just relocated to Bangkok around half an year, and recently heard some friends just got an offer. Seems like it's hiring a lot these days. Maewnam would like to note it down on this personal blog before forgetting everything, and hopefully it helps people.

Usually the process could be roughly categorized with the following steps:

  1. Resume submission (referral recommended & different channels may apply)
  2. Aptitude test: reading / comprehension / mathematics
  3. Hiring manager interview
  4. Manager's assessment
  5. Video interviews
  6. Face-to-face fly in interviews (with accommodation and flight support)

From resume submission to the offer, it's around 2-4 months, but heard someone has a longer process when applying for higher positions. (senior manager / director)

When the company is too big, especially when it comes to thousands of people, different big divisions are like function-specialized small company. This also applies to recruitment teams. Different departments have designated recruiting teams.

Of course there are some general HR, but their jobs are more like keep tracking overall headcount and the company's overall growth and development. That's also why this department is called People and Organization's Department.

My personal feeling... recruiting is a very hard job, and recruiters here are usually pretty busy.
Maewnam's recommendation is, if you are really in a hurry, you can ask your hiring manager or actively contact the recruiting managers and ask for the application time-line.


You could also apply some positions that you're interested in at the same time. Nevertheless, just as stated before, you might get different recruiters and you may need to rerun the whole interview process.

Sometimes you haven't heard back from the recruiters, maybe it's because the queue is too long or the positions are too popular. Don't give up! You can still apply after some months if you have any updates on your resume.

Welcome to contact me by the messenger widget or email to [email protected]

When you see some positions just recently opened, remember to apply fast, so you could avoid the queue!

You can also ask me for recommendation on positions / resumes, and I can see if there's any position to refer for you.

This is the strawberry milk flavored smashed ice in front of the company's entrance here... It's famous and popular here. And you can have it everyday if you come!

Good luck to your applications~
