    Assistant Store Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The first part of the process was very quick involving an initial application online, a questionnaire, a video interview and a telephone interview. I was then invited to a face to face interview with the Store Manager. The face to face interview consisted of set question which were mainly around how you would motivate a team and deliver briefs as well as competency based questions drawing from experience. There was a short role play where I had to deliver a brief on a promotion with limited information. At the end of the interview, I was told that someone would contact me on the following Monday or Tuesday at the latest weather I was successful or not. Over a week later, I heard nothing, which I consider to be highly unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started off with a one-to-one interview, which was a fairly relaxed setting. The interviewer may be off putting when assessing by looking to their tablet but keep focused. Then had an analytical case study, fairly decent with a bunch of background information and financial specifics. Had to make a decision based on the data given and present to an assessor. Then similarly had an innovative case study with same format as analytical case study. Finally, had a group exercise which was based on presenting an innovative idea and paying attention to specifics (i.e. target market, cost, potential).

    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for this role in O2 in Slough online and received an email and call within a few days for a phone interview with HR. After going back and forth a few times, managed to get a phone interview which was covered brief background, some behavioral questions and an outline of technical requirements for the job. Clearly the HR person had no idea about the details of the role (most HR folks don't in my experience), but I got through the first round and was invited for a face to face interview.

    The face to face interview was frustrating. The hiring managers were looking for skills that weren't outlined in the role advertised. They clearly had a massive list of typed out bog standard questions and were in quite a rush to cover them all, without giving me the chance to think through them before answering. Due to the pressure, I stumbled over one question and felt backed away in a corner and put in a tight spot with no help or apology from the hiring managers.

    Overall, it felt like an ambush and I was so frustrated that I ended up withdrawing my application and regretting wasting my time with them.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Straight forward, easy and fun (depends on the role). It was an online application, then was invited to test stage, at test stage it was using an office inbox to prioritize email, reply email and the speed at which all this was done. After this was a phone call to screen you to see where to place you, then after an invitation to assessment centre. At the assessment centre you were asked to prepare a presentation, questions were given before hand and you had to prepare. After that it took 3 weeks to get a phone call on the acceptance. This was three years ago and we were the first batch of interns, the guinea pigs, I'm sure a lot has changed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Telefónica (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Passed the telephone interview. Telephone interview was CV based and some behavioural questions. Invited for face to face interview. Asked to prepare a document for the interview, which for first instance seems to be very unusual. The interview lasted one and half hour, some technical and behavioural questions. The interviewer was not well prepared for the interview. Did not make any notes, just ask some random questions ( whatever comes to mind first). I thought the interview went well. But no offer was made. They still looking for Mr Perfect for the role. Travel Expense was not paid.
