    I worked at Vodafone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vodafone has a great diverse work culture. Although they are a British firm, I worked with people from all over Europe (Germany, France, UK, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Greece) and Asia (most countries) just within my division. They have great processes for a lot of functions and are professionally run.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the planners of the US MVNO were not committed to buying market share (losing money) to establish their brand as an Enterprise-grade wireless provider. They could not compete with the Big 3 and ultimately had to shut down the Mobility division.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more long-term focus next time. TMobile required 5 years to get 100K connections on their network. Trying to get there in one (1) year was umm.. stupid.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vodafone (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The initial interview stage involves some psychometric testing and for you to pre-record a video interview.
    The psychometric testing consisted of some "pattern matching" questions. They were fairly straightforward but the timeframe was tight. Following this there were some multi-choice questions about how you might respond to a typical business situation.
    For the video interview, there were 4 questions to answer, and you got 30 seconds to plan and then 3 minutes (one shot) to record a response.
