    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Telefonica.

    Interview

    2 round interview process - first round was a bit odd with an HR representative and the hiring manager. Second round was much easier as it was simply with the hiring manager and direct colleague - included behavioural and case study. Case study was about an actual current business issue - so make sure to do some background research to be able to answer a case that you might actually be working on.

    Interview Questions

    • Oh heaps- are interviews ever easy? Make sure you understand what you have applied for, the industry, the competition, the industry challenges etc etc.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Telefonica (Madrid (Spain)).

    direct face2face interview with manager. Currently it is very difficult to enter from outiside Telefonica. You need internal references to access an interview. There are many applicants for each position, therefore interviwa are familiar but they ask a lot of questions regarding market knowledge, past roles, responsabilities...

    • Need to be senior in the position. Very specific questions to the post.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    not very open to negotiate nowadays.

    Finance Grad Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Video interview following a series of tests, including verbal, numerical, e-tray, personality and abstract tests, of average difficulty. 5 questions: Why Telefonica, What are main challenges, And then teamwork and resilience competency based questions. It is hard to be engaging in a video interview, and you can't go back on what you have said, so I would think quite carefully about exactly what points to get across. You have time from between the question being asked and recording the answer, so use it to look over any notes you may have.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Telefonica (London, England (UK)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    First had a phone interview which went pretty well, just asked me general questions about my CV. As Telefonica Digital is a new, separate entity away from the main Telefonica company, she asked me why they would have chosen to do this as opposed to keep them all under the same brand. I was then invited to interview. I was asked basic competancy questions concerning team work etc.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Telefonica.

    Interview

    One telephone interview followed by a face to face interview with a manager and usually the Area Manager. This one to one, is quite relaxed and generally they ask questions on past experience. "tell me about a time you've delt with a customer complaint?" There is no right or wrong answer but what they are looking for is your ability to interpret the situation take what you perceive as the right course of action and then justify why it was the right thing.
