    Pros

    Good company to work for. They look after their staff well and incentivise you to work hard for them.

    Cons

    They sold out some of their loyal staff to Capita in 2013. This didn't go down so well with those TUPE'd over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the staff morale, and keep the communication lines open. This will improve the way people work if they're included in decissions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Telefónica (Blackburn, England (UK)) in June-2015.

    Interview

    Two weeks after applying, I was sent an email to complete an online questionnaire. 2 weeks later I was called for an interview. Because this was taking so long I did assume that I was not successful only for them to surprise me. The interview involved mainly competency questions followed by a presentation where I would have to try and sell a package to a customer.

    • Give an example of when you had to go against somebody's opinion and how you succeeded.   Answer Question
    • Give an example of working towards targets.   Answer Question
