    Human Resources Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fornebu (Norway)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Telenor in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was a profile interview. It was not around any specific competencies but focused more on the things that I had done in the past. Alhough it did focus on communication, clarity and ability to express ideas. It went quite relaxed so much so that in the end I felt that the interviewer had lost the interest to dig further. However when I was given the job offer, it said quite a few things about the culture. The interviewer did challenge me on a few things conceptually.
