Programme Manager Interview

Programme Manager

Graduate Interview

Graduate
Ipswich, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BT in January 2009.

Interview Details – Online application, then phone interview, then 2-day assessment centre. Phone interview is generic and tick-box-like. 2-day assessment centre needs some preparation around leadership skills and teamwork. Advisable to understand BT's main products and markets.

Interview Question – All aspects were very different, the group task was challenging because you need to work with others but at the same time prove that you can lead at the same time.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, all graduates generally were on the same salary.

Oracle Database Administrator Interview

Oracle Database Administrator
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BT.

Interview Details – 1) Good interview process....Questions mostly on your resume
2) Concepts

Reason for Declining – They say that salary is not a issue initially but later it is only because of the salary you donot hear from them....Really bad....

Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer
Delhi (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at BT in December 2012.

Interview Details – 5 rounds of interview mostly telephonic which was scheduled via a job consultant.
Had to go thru 3 technical rounds (1 telephonic and 2 f2f).then one more face to face round and at last HR round for Salary negotation.Overall the process took 3 months and then got the offer

Interview Question – Mostly the questions in which I struggled were scenario based..like if a customer wants instant attention and is rude..what is the solution.and in technical rounds were are lengthy but OK as every interviewer was listening the answers properly   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – normally they will give proper time to serve notice and about salary they dont keep much for negotation. As they will directly approach you with their budget.

Interview Details – Hiring process initially goes through a series of phone interviews. Once these interviews are cleared, then an online psychometric test is conducted. The final round is the assessment center which includes group exercise, presentation, final interview and role play. The assessment can be quite overwhelming for the unprepared and under confident.
