Very Easy Interview

Technical Support Interview

Technical Support
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TELUS in May 2010.

Interview Details – Pretty lame, stupid questions. Get hired on only if they like the person, the test they give for technical support positions appeared to be written by someone in grade 3 with little knowledge but as I found out that's how they fill the seats here and give jobs offshore that should go to Canadians.

Interview Question – How to tie shoe laces was most weird   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – What negotiations

Payment Support Interview

Payment Support
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at TELUS.

Interview Details – Interview process is a lengthy procedure. You are contacted via automated email if you meet the requirements and spark their interest for the position. Your first interview is computerized testing at their headquarters. Should you pass this exam then you are contacted via email for a telephone interview. Lastly you will be invited for a face to face interview.

Interview Question – What made you want to apply to this specific position?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The position was advertised as "part time" but turned out to be 95% full time. Did not work with my family's schedule (daycare, commuting, etc)

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at TELUS.

Interview Details – Applied online and received a phone interview with HR. Called in for local 1:1 interview with manager. Called in to make PP presentation on "Best Sale" to a panel of 3 managers which I was given 2 weeks to prepare for. Experience was intimidating since it was the first time in presenting at an interview.

Interview Question – The presentation proved to be most difficult as it was the first time doing one at an interview. plus the fact it was to be 15 mins. only (not 1 minute over, not 1 minute under).   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation but beware they don't tell you until after you are hired that in order to receive the car allowance your vehicle cannot be more than 5 years old. very important factor missing from making an educated decision when offered the position.

Technical Support Interview

Technical Support
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TELUS in March 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring process was simple. I had to go through a first assessment test which was a survey about myself after passing the first part, I had a second assessment test which had to do with core skills, data entry and multitasking.

Interview Question – No questions were asked   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I didn't really decline, I wasn't fit for the job because I was a student and the way they schedule their employees was on a rotating schedule, so even though I applied for a part time position I still had to be sort of available like a full timer.
