Intern Interview

Madrid (Spain)

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Telefónica in November 2010.

Interview Details – The CV was submitted to the company by the school. So there was an contact from the HR to inquire about my current studies. Based on it, the job description was sent to me and there was a phone interview with the concerned manager. Finally, I got confirmation of my acceptance.The whole process took about a month.

Interview Question – Questions were general such as - describe ur strength, describe your weaknesses, what can you contribute to the company and so on. Perhaps because this was an internship position, no technical questions were asked.   Answer Question

Internship Interview

Internship
Munich (Germany)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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!

Interview Question – name 3 weaknesses and 3 virtues   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation. An internship is very standard in Germany and every company has its own payment pre-established.
