    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Telefónica.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR. Pretty basic questions, mostly about experience, pros and cons about myself. Then I had another phone interview with the supervisor of the position, it wasn't technical either, though we discussed my experience with different technologies to make sure I could be a fit. Finally had an onsite interview with the same supervisor and one of the heads of the lab, this one was a 45 minute technical interview and a "soft skills" interview.

    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).
