    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.

    TLDP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Standard IT interview, coding, Q&A and so on. There are 2 rounds of interviews.

    The TELUS TLDP interviewees were very inexperienced, all of them were only about 1.5 ~ 2 years old in TLDP program. I had never have experienced such a unseasoned interviewees because typically you would expect a director or a senior manager involved during new graduate hire process so I found this to be very awkward.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    It is a 30 minutes interview that I spoke with the Hiring Manager. He introduced about his team and what will be the main responsibilities and then asked me to go through my background. The questions are quite normal, such as asking your career goal in next 5 years, your experience in business analysis. But since the role is a bit technical, requiring SQL knowledge to get large amount of data for system, which I did not use it before. I thought I won't be getting into the next round when phone call ended. But I did receive an email 2 hours later, for an in-person interview.

    • Nothing very difficult. All normal questions   View Answer
