    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    I've interviewed with Telus at least thrice now and while the experience hasn't been unpleasant (too strong a word), it hasn't been fruitful either. all 3 roles were at individual contributor level. The first time was a joke. The hiring manager wasn't present for the interview and the guy who did interview me made a token attempt. the second time was a better experience. I was at the case + behavioral stage when i was offered my current job with another company. I spoke to the hiring manager at Telus who was a really positive person and he advised i don't lose a bird in hand for the one in the air. he didn't end up filling that role for 6 months so i'm glad i didn't wait. However I'm interviewing with them again so let's see how this round goes.

    Implementation Manager Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    Two 1-1 interviews, once with the recruiter and once with the Telus hiring manager. Telus manager was very nice and comfortable to sit. Looking for keenness (later in his words - "in a good way"). This is a big, big company with lots opt silos so demonstrating you can deal with (process) ambiguity and not get stumped...that you can navigate through a huge organization and not get lost (my biggest challenge was going from very small company to mega-sized Telus)...is important. You need to show that within such a big company you can make the critical connections and relationships throughout the organization that will make you successful. The company with a huge front-line staff (union or not union operational folks) like Telus the the onus is on you (as manger or other) to make the front-line relationships work for you. While you may like to think you know what's going, the guy buried in the company basement probably knows more about the his business than you do - being open to and leveraging this knowledge can make you stand out and can be to your real advantage.

    Engineer-In Training Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at TELUS in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    There are 3 rounds of interview for this GELP program. The first round is phone interview and it is half technical and half behavioural based on the work and school. The second round is case presentation where a topic is given: innovative services or products for TELUS, and the case interview is with some other candidates (3-4 people) as well as hiring managers and current engineer-in training employees (5-6 people). Candidates are responsible of asking and answering questions within the time. The third round is a panel interview of 3 hiring managers, where technical and behavioural questions are asked based on your resume. Although, the questions were not very difficult... I was a little panic and went blank in the middle, but I still answered most questions nicely. Which results in a background check consent and unofficial offer now (Official offer will arrive when background check is done with passed).

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Had a telephone interview with someone from HR for about 30 min.

    Questions were about my past experience, and also about the company. Common interview questions like “What are your strengths?" or "Tell me about a time you had to be creative".... The first round is mostly the "Fit Interview" looking for someone creative, smart and with great interpersonal skills.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted relatively quickly for a phone interview. The first round phone interview was a very standard behavioural interview - tell me about a time you've had to work with a difficult person etc. A few other questions were asked such as "what motivates you?" and "what was the last business book you read?"

    The second round was in the office and it was a 1 hour long case interview. This is really aimed at seeing your thinking process. It had one general business acumen related quantitative portion and a more strategy oriented portion.

    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TELUS.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a 1-hour behavioural interview, done by two managers in the group. They asked the typical behavioural questions. The second interview was a case study. I was given two hours to complete a case study and then present it to two other managers, who then afterwards asked me a few more questions.

    Interview Questions
    • There really weren't difficult questions per say, but it's all in how you answer them. As with any interview, they are really looking for someone who is very positive about their experience, and can demonstrate they have been a great employee in the past.   Answer Question
