Director Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at TELUS.
Interview Details – You'll need to go to their TALEO powered Careers website to fill in a fairly detailed profile even if they know you already. Uploading your Resume helps fill in a lot of the information. From there you will need to attach that profile to the actual job posting and connect the two together.
HR will screen you at first and answer any high level questions you have.
Get to know TELUS before you apply and certainly before the interviews. Read their Financials, Annual reports and try and meet other TELUS people.
After everything - there will be a Panel interview: Your hiring manager and a number of your peers or potential colleagues. You will be asked to do a 10 minute presentation (do NOT go over!) and this will be followed by Q&A. If your position is technically oriented the questions will veer that way. If it is more leadership oriented then expect the questions to be more Managerial.
If you can get past the panel interview you will be asked to supply references and go through a Police background check (all TELUS employees need to pass this criminal record check).
Interview Question – The interview questions need to show practical real-world examples. Do not use theoretical answers: They want to see what YOU would do from your own real experience. Answer Question
Director Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at TELUS.
Interview Details – Long process - behavioural assessment, priority setting evaluation, presentation of accomplishments & qualifiactions, panel interview/role playing.
Interview Question – How will you deal with an ethnic slur by a Client on one of your employees? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Less than a week. Limited in flexibility.
Director Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at TELUS in June 2009.
Interview Details – Very disrespectful and intimidating approach by senior leader
Interview Question – Why have you changed jobs Answer Question
