    Internal Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BT (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Unpleasant!
    Taken to the Canteen instead of a quiet office
    The HR person came across as rude and unprofessional, with sometimes a show of clenched fists (!!!)
    She spent most of the interview drawing a diagram explaining where the I was applying to department fit within the larger BT group
    She did ask questions on resilience and managing stakeholders
    My application was unsurprisingly rejected with feedback that the interview was flat and that as a candidate lacked "spark"

    BT you really need to improve on your customer and interview experiences. Sort our your HR!
    Please teach your gatekeepers how to conduct a professional interview (in a private area rather than a canteen).
    Also teach them what to say when asked to give specific feedback than giving vacuous and unqualified statements. When did "spark", suddenly become a selection criteria?
    The whole experience reflects poorly on your as a company.

    MBA Development Program Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BT (London, England (UK)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The company contacted me when they said they would, and asked typical phone interview questions. These were things like willingness to relocate, why I was interested in BT, etc. The interview lasted 15-20 minutes and went about average, but the interviewer appeared to be in a hurry and no second round interview was given. I believe they had a large number to screen, so that is something to keep in mind - something really needed to stand out about the answers to get selected.

    Trainee Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BT (London, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through BT website. I was then given a video interview which lasted around 5 minutes. They give you a practise question. Then you get 3 questions - why you wanna work for Openreach? Name a time you used good customer service? Name a weakness about yourself? I passed that and heard back from them about 5 days later saying I had passed. I then picked a date for a open day interview at a depot in Aldershot around a week later.

    At the open day I had 11 other people in my group. First we have a induction through PowerPoint. Then we are split into 2 groups. My group is out straight into the practical test. We have to wire 3 circuits. So for example the backs of plugs. Was a little harder than I expected but you get plenty of time. Then onto two 1 on 1 interviews. First one about customer service. Second one was about open reach and the roll also what skills you have. Then we done a maths test and literacy test. Both were harder than I thought but again take your time. Then you leave and are told you will hear back within 5 working days. I didn’t think I done well enough but I heard back the next day. Telling me that I passed the assessment and now I’m waiting for my start date.
