Interviewed at Telefonica
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Telefonica challenges if you hadn't prepared for it. Answer Question

I was then invited to interview. I was asked basic competancy questions concerning team work etc.

Interview Details –
One telephone interview followed by a face to face interview with a manager and usually the Area Manager.

Interview Details – I attended the European Career Fair at MIT, and approached the Telefonica booth. I showed themmy resume and they invited me to interview at the designated interview locations the next day. I met with a woman from HR, who was very friendly and helpful. She seemed pleased that I had been to Madrid before, where the position was, and apprecitated humility and a demonstration of diligence and experience and value to employees through examples. She then forwarded my resume to the director of the co-op program because I don't finish my degree until next December. That person sent my resume to the patent office, where they agreed to take me on for the summer, without any further interviews, even though the director of the co-op program indicated that I would need to do a phone interview.
