    Far too drawn out and complicated. Why have a telephone interview and a telephone role play? Turn around time to long. Plus Recruitment Advisor never responds to your questions.

    Sales Associate Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Three in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was with the store manager via telephone. He told me at the end of the call that he thought I was the right person for the job and invited me to a face to face interview a week later.

    When I turned up, the room had 5 other people sat there. I was then told it was a group interview and that we was waiting for 2 other candidates before starting.

    When we started, we was all introduced, we had 2 store managers, an area manager (who didn't put his phone down once) and the head of HR who led the interview.

    First part of the interview was to go in a separate room with a manager for a one on one interview. He asked the usual questions about my past experience and how I'd deal with certain situations in the workplace.

    Then we all had 20 minutes to write down the main aspects of selling (customer care, product knowledge etc). We then had 15 minutes to discuss with the other candidates which aspects was the most important. Finally we each had to do a 10 minute presentation on one aspect in front of the group.

    We was then sent home and I found out the next day that I had been successful.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Three in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Quite unprofessional if I should say. Had completed a questionnaire online, was called twice while on holiday and nobody left a message. No emails sent to notify they'd selected me for a job interview, third time they rang they left a message saying that if I didn't reply they'd have given the job to someone else.

    Interview Questions
    • Usual questions about why you'd like to work there and about experience. To be honest, the AM who interviewed me seemed to prefer to talk about herself a lot more than she was interested in hearing about me. What a great start. Haha.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations, salary is fixed with bonus scheme changing every now and then.

    Online Product Development Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Three.

    Interview Details

    2 Stage interview - relatively free form discussions. The biggest issue is the discrepancy between the internal perceptions and descriptions of things and the view to someone from the outside.

    Three is a company defined by earnest denial and re-interpretation, they honestly seem to believe the perceptions they espouse but i would suggest that makes them no more true.

    Do not take things are they are described
