    As long as you do as you're told, everything is okay and fine. There's cooffee machines and some nice people and all.


    there's absolutely no regard in pointing out possible problems or bumps in the road - you're just considered a troublemaker. Doesn't matter that exactly those things do come true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look into things not only from the "show me the numbers" perspective... number can be (and are) manipulated and every project can be considered a success if you only crunch the numbers long enough.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hamburg (Germany)
    Anonymous Employee in Hamburg (Germany)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at freenet in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Position was in Hamburg. HR called first and said they're not gonna pay what I'm asking and whether I'm ok with less. Then I had to got through an assessment center with about 20 other people applying for various positions on a similar career level. That was one afternoon, pretty easy and standard stuff.

    Few days later was an in-person with a HR manager and my upcoming manager. Unfortunately he was stuck in a meeting so someone else filled in who was completely unprepared.

    The HR guy was junior and asked a lot of questions from the book which was irrelevant.

The result of the 2007 merger of German wireless operator mobilcom and ISP, the company sells mobile phone access, dial-up and broadband Internet access, and data products and services. It also markets advanced phone and Internet services to businesses. freenet doesn't have its own mobile network so it resells network access from Deutsche Telekom, Royal KPN, and Telefónica SA. The company acquired rival debitel for $2.5 billion in 2008, creating one of the largest mobile phone operators in Germany.
