    Telephone Interview ?????

    Has anyone had one of these before?
    Iv just been asked for availabilty between 25th May and 1st June.....

    Wonder why they just cant get me in like a shirt and tie type interview, is this the new way to interview someone?
    you would think they would want to see you in person first

    the telephone ineterview is a precursor if you do well in that then you get a face to face
    its just a test to see if your suited to the job theyll ask questions just to see if itll be benefical to drag you in for an interview or not i had one for RBS

    we use these, we pre-interview everyone just to make sure they can actually speak and that they know their stuff instead of potentially wasting both our times with a face to face.

    i have had a few and also given a phone interview. It is mainly used to see how you come across on the phone. The jobs i got them for were for sales and customer service.

    They give phone interviews first to filter out the no-hopers so if you don't get called in after then you haven't got good phone manners lol

    is the job you're going for a sex line call operator???

    a friend, i go to college with, had one not so long a go. for an apprenticeship, i dont know if its the same everywhere, but he got another letter asking him to attend an 'official interview'

    Uncle had one, didnt contact him until the last day and then they just asked the same questions he had already answered on his application form. Total waste of time, but nothing you can do about it.

    Good luck anywayz

    Good luck on the interview Saxo appeal

    Maybe its because there were so many people going for it...it is a highly sought after job !

    My OH has had Telephone interviews for his last 4 jobs, he's not had a face to face interview for years. Only one wanted to 'see' him and that was done via a webcam.

    Must be the way to go in business now.

    Well it would make a lot of sense for BT - not much point them hiring somebody who can't manage a decent conversation on the phone!
