Business Analyst I Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TELUS (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in November 2014.
The process is very different for co-op students than it is for full-timers. Attending the information session is critical. Different departments hire through completely different processes and there is a lot of variation in how hiring is done across the board. Expect at least 2 rounds of interviews as well as formal screening processes.
- They asked a combo of behavioral and case questions relevant to telecom. Answer Question
None for contractors- no negotiation.

Business Analyst I InterviewDeclined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TELUS (Scarborough, ON (Canada)).
Had an phone interview with HR then was scheduled for an interview with the manager and a senior analyst. Also had a phone interview a few weeks later with the VP.
- Entire interview with manager and senior analyst was behavioural. They each had a package of which they would read off and ask you questions. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Took too long to get back to me. From when I first talked to HR to when I got the offer, took four months. Structure is too rigid to get anything done quickly. I also had a better offer elsewhere.
Business Analyst I InterviewNo OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TELUS in October 2010.
Very nice people. Extremely positive atmosphere with great communication and passion being demonstrated by interviewers. Very friendly. However, don't let that positive atmosphere fool you. They know what they are looking for and are very serious about qualifications. I felt like my interview went very well (I had other interviews to compare to), yet was rejected. Be sure to prepare solid and specific/well rounded examples of times you demonstrated the specific skills they are looking for, because they will not tell you in advance. Other companies seem to screen/probe into qualifications and skills in earlier stages (phone interviews, cover letter/resumes, online assessments) then use the face to face to assess your communication and passion, however Telus seemed to assess interest and passion with the phone interview, and dive into specific skills and experience in the face to face.
- Give me an example of a time you leaned out a process or implemented a change and walk me through what happened. 1 Answer
Business Analyst I InterviewAccepted OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TELUS in November 2007.
Brief phone interview, in-person meeting with two team members, large group meeting with entire team and 6 potential candidates. Put into groups of 3, asked to analyze and present case on business problem and solution. We have about 30 minutes to prepare a power point presentation in which we split up sections for presentation. This was then critiqued by the manager and other team members.
- How do you deal with users that are reluctant to share knowledge of processes and information? Answer Question
