    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Telefónica in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I received a call 2 days after sending my online application from the manager of the area I applied for. We scheduled a convenient date and time to meet. They covered my travel expenses (train).

    I had an interview which lasted for about 1 hour with the current intern and 2 managers. One manager was responsible for asking facts about my CV (education, previous experience, etc). The other one gave my different scenarios and I had to describe my most probable reaction to those.

    After this, we talked about working hours, salary and they said they would get back to me in the next few days. 2 days later the same manager calls and offers me the position.

    Great environment, great people, great experience!
