    Commercial Strategy Graduate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at O2 (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England).

    Interview

    Attended the assessment centre March 2018. There were around 20 of us and the day consisted of 3 activities. First was a group exercise, very similar to an escape room, where you have to work as a team to solve clues in a fantasy scenario. Then we had an hour long interview followed by a presentation on a new idea to raise awareness of their go think big campaign. Overall it was a very relaxed and fun day.

    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.

    5 Jul 2018 – Resourcing Business Partner

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review and we're delighted that you enjoyed the day.

    We're sorry that you're disappointed with how the feedback was given. Due to the number of individuals we are fortunate enough to invite, contacting everyone by phone is extremely hard so we do respond via e-mail, but it is disappointing that you haven't received a response from your request for further information. Please feel free to contact earlycareers@o2.com who will be happy to help.

    The process takes a number of months from online application to get through the various stages of online testing, video interviewing and then assessment day.

    We hope that you will consider O2 in the future.

    Marketing Role Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at O2 (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    After submitting my CV through O2's website I was asked to schedule in a telephone interview. Once the telephone interview was scheduled in with the Resourcing advisor, they simply did not bother calling, answering their phone or even advising they cannot make it through email. I then emailed the resoucring advisor and rescheduled for the same thing to happen to again.
    It was a truly unprofessional experience which did not refleact well on the company.

    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at O2 (London, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online with my CV, then got invitation to some online assessment. After a week got an email to invite me for a phone interview. It was easy, basically they want to know about your availability, flexibility. There were some experience based question. If everything is going well, you’ll invite you to an assessment day.
    In the first part of the interview, I had to fill up a form about my availability, holiday plan... so basic stuffs. Then I was left alone with a store manager. She was extra nice and helpful, I felt myself calm and comfortable. Question were so simple (okay, I already have 5 years experience in telecommunication retail), easy to answer it. There aren’t good or wrong answers, just be calm, confident and show your best self! The second part was a role play. They just want to see how easily can you talk to a customer. I liked this part, however it’s a little bit “steril”, because in the real life, customers are not so helpful as the interviewer. On the next day got a phone call from the HR, with an offer.

    Interview

    Over all interview process experience not bad that is standard procedure so no complain.
    Just you can’t judge someone on just phone interview which is bad so at least give them option to come and describe their customer service skills

    16 Mar 2018 – Resourcing Consultant

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review around our interview process, we really do appreciate your feedback. We do phone interviews purely down to the number of applications that we get for our retail roles. We couldn't invite everyone to interview as we just wouldn't have enough time so the phone interview helps us to get to know the individual better but also gives the candidate (you) the opportunity to get to know more about o2 and the role you have applied for. We can see that you weren't made an offer and we hope that does not deter you from thinking about reapplying to us in the future. Good Luck in your career search.
