    Finance Grad Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Telefonica in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly nothing out of the blue whatsoever... very straight-forward.   Answer Question

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Telefonica in January 2010.

    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.
