    Network Planning Manager (I)- Co-op Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TELUS in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this job via Taleo, which the jobs database that Telus currently uses. The job caught my attention through my university's Co-op database which redirected me to Taleo. The interview in particular was quite general, so to speak there were a few technical questions. Mostly, situational and behavioural in nature. All in all I would say it was a good experience but I would have prefered it to be face to face, since telephone's can be a hindrance of expressing oneself. But regardless it was a really experience.

    Interviewed with Manager and a team member. Was given documents of a design exercise to prepare for the interview but not required to complete. Instead asked to reflect on a tool, system or process that I needed to design. Plus asked general questions on past work experience and lots of behavioral questions. Interview lasted an hour and a half. A week or so later received Predictive index survey to complete.

    Co-op Student - Customer Solutions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Calgary, AB (Canada)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TELUS in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    A few days after applying for a Co-op student position, TELUS contacted all eligible students with a list of possible positions available across Canada. You had to pick your top 3, ranging from locations across Canada, different business units, and a 4 or 8 month term. After the decision it took a week to get an email from TELUS regarding the interview and time. Mine was in a TELUS office, because I am located in a city where there is one. The interview was entirely behaviour based and was conducted via a conference call with the recruiter, and face-to-face with the hiring manager. Two weeks later I was sent background check forms, and another week after that the offer was sent.
