    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    First of all: there are NO easy interviews at TELUS. Every interview I have had has been long, intense, and gruelling.

    The first interview I had (after 2 unsuccessful phone screenings and one successful one) was 4 hours long, performed over video conference, and incorporated the dreaded behavioural based questions, situational questions, experience based questions, and a case study. I got lucky with the interview though, because many people had to do TWO of these.

    After about two years at my first job, I began applying for other positions. I had 4 interviews for seperate jobs, all which were very difficult.

    The first one put me through a 2.5 hour long interview with behavioral based questions. The second interview consisted of a case (expected presentation time: 1 hour) that was sent 16 hours before the meeting. I had to create an entire marketing/business readiness plan which ended up consisting of 27 meaty slides that took about 10 hours to do. I even had it vetted from many peers, and I still didnt get the job because someone beat me out.

    This happened THREE more times, until I finally got a job.

    Now I am applying for another position, also consisting of a case (including a marketing plan). This is the first of 3 interview passes that this position will require. I have no doubt that they will be as intense as the last.

    Interview Questions
    • Business case: Create a Marketing and Business Readiness plan, including risks, issues, timelines, action plans, stakeholders, and post-mortems, including quantitative and qualitative analysis for each point that is noted. You have 1.5 hours of presentation time, and you will be given the case sometime in the day before.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiate when you are an external candidate only. People getting positions within the company have set limits to how much they can go up. Start high, continue high. Start low, and you will always have a lower salary than the next guy.

    I applied online. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    There is no standard interview format. My first interview was a group format. A table of engineers asked a range of questions, some testing technical knowledge, others asking about my background, others asking for my thoughts on service or design concepts.

    I had two follow-up interviews, one of which was in a restaurant, and a screening by HR: "inbox" test and some personality stuff.
