Millicom Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
BDS - Business Decision Support Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Millicom in July 2012.
Interview Details – Very confusing process. Started out with a recruiter reaching out by email and then calling me from Dubai for a position in Luxemburg. Two different recruiters called on different ocassions with same questions, seems like no coordination internally. Then had 4 different executives from different nationalities interviewing me, very professionals. Very long process overall but very interesting.
Interview Question – No real challenging questions, mostly disuccion to understand my drivers, needs, priorities in life, expectations. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I was not sure if I wanted to rellocate and had uncertainty of future and growth internally due to many changes in top management in company during past year.
Very Difficult Interview
Enlightening!!! Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Millicom in August 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online, phone interview from HR with the classic questions from a (rude) little girl then they send you a link to a bunch of timed cognitive and personality tests. That told me a lot about the atmosphere and fit. This is NOT the place for me. Unless you are a HUGE egomaniac and Type A to a fault you are going to hate it there. I halted everything and took my hat out of that ring. I'm not working in a bull pen as senior management!!! this is a meat shop.
Interview Question – 30 maths problems in 8 minutes. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Anonymous Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Millicom.
Interview Details – Very simple just 1 call and :1 1 interview. Not so important to have the skills it is more important the attitude and connections. The process was simple and easy, I just remember doing a personality test but maybe there was another tests, I don't remember anymore.
Negotiation Details – No I was not really able to negotiate, even if I had another offer with higher salary.
