    Finance Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at O2 (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Assessment centre with about 15 other candidates - day consisted of group exercise, individual interview and individual presentation. Exercise was more a puzzle-solving task which was a pleasant change to the standard group tasks in other ACs. Interview was about an hour long, questions about you and your previous experience. Presentation was structured into 30mins for preparation and then presenting your idea to assessors - no slides required, more of a meeting to discuss your idea and be asked further questions about it. Overall a very enjoyable and interactive, albeit long, day.
    Very poor feedback process - ie instead of receiving a phone call as was advertised in both the case of an offer or not, got sent a very brief automated email. Also advertised was the opportunity to receive personal feedback - after 3 months of emailing asking for at least some brief feedback, got no response.
    Process of applying to O2 was otherwise very smooth.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at O2 (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2017.

    First through the phone and then in-person. Very easy going, and it seems like a great working environment where people are genuinely happy to be there. I rejected the offer because of a better offer somewhere else

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me very broad questions and seemed to want me to describe myself rather than asking me specific questions.   1 Answer

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review but we believe this review is on the wrong page as we do not operate in Canada so I think it might be another o2 that you have interviewed for. Great... More
