    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Telefónica (Blackburn, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Two weeks after applying, I was sent an email to complete an online questionnaire. 2 weeks later I was called for an interview. Because this was taking so long I did assume that I was not successful only for them to surprise me. The interview involved mainly competency questions followed by a presentation where I would have to try and sell a package to a customer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Telefónica.

    Interview

    The interview process is quite straightforward. First there is the initial interview with HR to see if you are the right fit. Next is a half an hour phone interview with the hiring manager. If you chosen, you get a face-to-face. I did not make it that far.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Telefónica (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Firstly, I completed an online questionnaire. Then I was asked to complete a video interview, the question do not directly correspond with the role I was applying for. Two days later received a call from the recruitment team just to make sure I understood the job description and to make sure I met the required needs. I was then invited to have a 1:1 interview, I had to read a 12 page booklet about a customer advisors performance and then do a role play on how they can improve their performance. After that I was asked some questions chosen on how I answered the online questionnaire.

    Data Analytics Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started off with a one-to-one interview, which was a fairly relaxed setting. The interviewer may be off putting when assessing by looking to their tablet but keep focused. Then had an analytical case study, fairly decent with a bunch of background information and financial specifics. Had to make a decision based on the data given and present to an assessor. Then similarly had an innovative case study with same format as analytical case study. Finally, had a group exercise which was based on presenting an innovative idea and paying attention to specifics (i.e. target market, cost, potential).

    Sales & Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Telefónica (London, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    After submitting your CV and passing the online assessment the next stage is to complete a video interview. It is not as terrible as some people describe it to be. Of course it would be good to practice beforehand at looking directly at the camera (if not slightly above) so you can make 'eye contact'. You have to answer 5 or 6 questions and you have as much time as you like to take a break before you see each question but only about a minute to prepare for it. Be careful as most questions give you 2 minutes to answer them but some only 1! Read the description carefully and treat it just like any other initial interview.

    Interview

    Applied online Send links to complete test some of which required the impossible. One test was 5 minutes long and you had to answer 50 questions in that time, although the answers were true false or cant tell it took so long because each question linked to a certain tab of which there were six, some with written information and some graphs Another test was emails looking through possibly 100 emails and marking there importance before forwarding them to the correct people Altogether there were about 6 test. The next stage was a recorded video interview personally I was not a fan because you had a question on the screen and then you just spoke to yourself so it didn't put me in the correct mind set of an interview

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for this role in O2 in Slough online and received an email and call within a few days for a phone interview with HR. After going back and forth a few times, managed to get a phone interview which was covered brief background, some behavioral questions and an outline of technical requirements for the job. Clearly the HR person had no idea about the details of the role (most HR folks don't in my experience), but I got through the first round and was invited for a face to face interview. The face to face interview was frustrating. The hiring managers were looking for skills that weren't outlined in the role advertised. They clearly had a massive list of typed out bog standard questions and were in quite a rush to cover them all, without giving me the chance to think through them before answering. Due to the pressure, I stumbled over one question and felt backed away in a corner and put in a tight spot with no help or apology from the hiring managers. Overall, it felt like an ambush and I was so frustrated that I ended up withdrawing my application and regretting wasting my time with them.
