    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GSMA in August 2014.

    Interview

    Made it through first and second round of interviews. Very smart people who that know their industry and work really hard and expect the same of whomever they hire.

    Interview Questions

    • Analyze, develop and present on a business case within one hour as part of the final interview process.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I am anticipating an offer in the coming days. I expect them to lowball me but for a sales position in the market they are trying to capture and with my experience, they should expect to pay top dollar - specifically because this is not a commission-based position and the sales cycles can be from 3 to 18 months.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GSMA.

    Interview

    Went through 4 (!) interview rounds. Invested much time and effort. After 4th interview never heard back from them again, for better or worse, even though I felt the interview went well.
    HR never responded to my emails after that day.
    Looking at other interview reviews here this seems like a common practice with them.

    Incompetent HR.
    The staff were otherwise very nice.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of ordinary. Make sure you fit the job description and if you do the interview is very straightforward.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied online, received a telephone interview, after the telephone interview it was a more difficult than the average psychometric test.

    Calming process. Questions were not difficult and the Tech Manager is a very calm man. The Hiring process was also very nice. They called me up and even changed my contract to a 3 month contract rather than a yearly placement.

    Senior Strategy Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GSMA (London, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was interview by two managers who asked questions about my CV. The senior manager believed that the Apple iPhone X was going to fundamentally change the global telecommunications market. I disagreed with him. I believed that he failed to see the wood from the trees. He had fallen for all the hype surrounding the product launch of the Apple iPhone X while ignoring more fundamental factors such as cognitive computing, cloud computing, 5G, IoT, and big data. Overall I was not impressed with his strategic abilities. The culture of the GSMA appeared to be the type of place where they had meetings to discuss what to discuss in the next meeting.
