    Telephone Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spark New Zealand (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    First interview was a panel that includes the Regional and National Sales Lead. Then if you get short listed, they'll invite you for a psychometric test. The third interview was more of them letting me know they'll get me, the reason behind their decision and more details of the role. They also discussed to me the result of my psychometric test which is very helpful for myself -- knowing where can I improve and my greatest strength.

    Tip: Research VERY WELL about the company.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spark New Zealand (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Had 2 interviews with managers.
    It was very casual interview. 1st was at the head quarter and the 2nd was at the cafe.
    The interviews weren't bad. Obviously they only focused on whether I was able to communicate with customers in a professional way. However, the contract process afterwards took a quite a long time as the headquarter were closed when I started.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spark New Zealand (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    this process was very lengthy and stressful only to be told by the recruitment agency that Spark 'has decided to hire internally - for all 10 positions available'.

    Time total: a month
    Process:
    - Typing test (through their recruitment agency)
    - 30 min phone interview (through their recruitment agency)
    - Online chat simulation test - 20 minutes (through their recruitment agency)
    - Chat simulation self reflection questions – over an hour to complete (through their recruitment agency)
    - Fill out police and credit check information
    - 30 minute phone interview with Spark
    - Have my references be called by their agency
    - Phoned over a week later to be told start dates etc are being pushed back but they are happy with my application
    -Phones two days later by recruitment agency (not Spark themselves) to be told I missed out because they decided to hire internally.

    Warning to all those external applicants for Spark as you may be required to be involved in a lengthy process only to have had 0% chance of getting the job in the first place
