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
I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Details – Applied online, and before the deadline, got a phone call from their Burnaby HQ and offered me a interview, because I was in a different city, they offered a phone interview, but I ended up went to the interview in person. And I actually glad I did, I get to went into their office and experience the work environment, it was really nice, pity that I didn't get to work for them. I though I did well in the interview, somehow got declined, they're not very good at giving feedback, because they never tell me why I was not selected.

Interview Details – I was contacted via email from the recruiter who was assigned to this new business group. We arranged for a telephone interview to be held the following week. During the interview, I was asked a serious of questions that were essentially the job requirements put into question form. The call took 20 minutes.
Interview Question – The questions weren't difficult, but the recruiter seemed distracted and really not very aware of my answers. She talked over me a couple of times and ended the conversation by saying I would hear back in 3-5 business days. I didn't hear anything after a week, so I followed up by email and asked for a process update. When she got back to me, she mixed up the management role I had applied for with an analyst role, and essentially blew me off. Answer Question

Interviewed at TELUS
Interview Details – Hiring manager was professional over email, casual in person. Only a few of the questions tested knowledge of the industry, the rest were trying to figure out if you're the right fit. Be careful of what you say, as an offhand remark that you think wouldn't matter might be taken as an indication of your personality and potential fit and they will judge you (positively or negatively) based on it. For example, if you mention you have a photography hobby and they ask what kind of photography you prefer, and you say "macro, because the details are so interesting" this might sound like it's completely irrelevant to the interview and therefore in the realm of "chit chat" but beware, the interviewer is noting that you are a "details" person, and probably not a good fit for a "big picture" position.
