Retail Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at EE

Interview Details I applied online, passed the initial CV screen and was invited to partake in an online multiple choice assessment, the first part of which was personality based and the second was more situational, with a series of scenarios for which you had to choose from a list of possible courses of action.

Interview Question – Some of the situational questions were quite a challenge, as on face value most of the available responses had some merit. I cannot recall a specific question off-hand.   Answer Question

Sales Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EE.

Interview Details Initially I applied online, once successful in the first stage I had to then complete some online questioning. This consisted of situation questions that made you think about possible scenarios and how you might act. Once passed this I received a telephone call which turned into a quick telephone interview, they asked basic questions like why I wanted to work for their company, etc. Finally once passed this I was invited into an in store face-to-face interview. I was sent an email that gave me a brief of what the 2 hour 15 min interview would consist of if I was continually successful, and also asked me to prepare a sales pitch for one of the three products for the company "Futuristico". For this I chose to sell Trips To Mars which I did as a role play as if I was addressing a customer, I did not use any props or presentations.

Interview Question – Possibly the most difficult is one of the role plays where the interviewer pretends to be a customer at the gym you work for, and they want to leave but you have to try and give them reason to stay.   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Bristol, England

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EE.

Interview Details Hiring process is structured (for permanent roles) compared to some other companies out there. Managers use a pre prepared set list of questions with all candidates for a position which brings fairness and better comparison. For technical position the interview is divided in two sections 'Behavioural' and 'Technical'. Technical is obviously the most important part since it's a technical role, but do not ignore or act as if you don't care about the behavioural part, because in a way that could reflect that you don't care enough about the job itself.

Interview Question – Technical question could go into any depth and variation, so it's better to look at the job and prepare accordingly. It may also be wise to discuss with the recruiter in details what the team does and what technologies they work on. Interview is also likely to go a bit wider than what the team is exactly doing to see your over all knowledge of Telecom. Also make sure you are up to date with the latest news in telecom industry.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – This is very subjective to the individual and the manager you are dealing with. But in my case I was through a recruiter. I asked for the salary I wanted and I was offered very close to that and EE would not offer any more. But it was still a fair offer and so I accepted it.
