I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Liberty Global (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).
I sent my CV and cover letter, was contacted 2 months later for an ability test and for a classical HR phone interview and then invited to an assessment center comprising of a case study to be solved in teams, a presentation of that case study, followed by questions and a series of statements about the company with which we had to agree/disagree. Regarding the case study which focused on the financial statements of the company and their market evolution I do recommend reading the financial chapter of the annual report, compare the balance sheet items with other similar firms, know their stock price and something about their strategy (mobile development is key for the next couple of years). The next day, there was a 1 to 1 interview with the Finance VP and it tested mostly my finance knowledge: classical accounting questions like 'How would you record a sale when the customer pays at the end of the month?", "What's the impact on the BS, Income Statements and P&L?" etc. Their corporate culture seems relaxed, they offer access to a gym and a nice cafeteria, but the payment is quite low around 1700 eur/month. Also junior trainees are the last to choose their rotations.
