The second part was focused on several questions about the Company (market position, competitors, marketing strategies, etc).
In the last part, the recruitment member asked me to continue our chat in english (we started in Italian, my first language): we talked about my personal skills and personality, future job ambitions and personal life philosophies. Although it was a structured format, the approach was informal, I felt comfortable with the kind of questions and the way we discussed about the several topics.
In the end, I received all the informations about the next steps I should face if I succeeded the phone interview; otherwise an e-mail should inform me about the end of my submission path.
Most difficult question
"Which are your weaknesses?"
"Do you think that our Company (marketing) strategy is suitable to face competitors' offer? Have you got any different suggestions?"
