    hi, has anyone recently applied for the MS operations role starting in Feb 2012 (London) that has already had their telephone interview? I've submitted my application, waiting for tests (which I hope to pass!) and hoping to be invited to a telephone interview soon. are they quite similar to the ones posted by princess jasmine?

    thanks :)

    Hey smk123,

    I had my telephone interview a few months ago and the questions were very similar to what Princess Jasmine posted. Good luck with it! :)

    Hi Everyone! Thanks for the info. I did the online test on 4th July but still haven't heard anything yet. Can anyone tell me how long usually it takes for MS to get back, please?

    Hi Epearc11! Congrats. I also applied for 2012 operations analyst role but just this month. No idea when the dealine is though. Do you think everyone gets a telephone interview? or, it could be face-to-face? Btw, I applied for the London office I think. Thank you.

    Princess Jasmine, those are the exact questions I was asked. Thank God I had covered them during my prep. I was told on wednesday that I'm to go up to Glasgow next month for the assessment centre, do you have an idea of how it would be??

    Hey !

    They got back in touch with me in a week's time. From what you said it sounds like they are holding ACs just now which means they'll probably be busier then usual and may get back to you later than sooner. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    All the best :)

    Hi Princess Jasmine!

    Thank you for your post. I wish I had discovered it earlier.

    Any idea about how long it takes to hear back (either good or bad news) after the phone interview?

    I think that the next assessment center is in a week and I have not heard back since last week that I had the phone interview.

    Thank you. :)
