    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burnaby, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at TELUS in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via Telus Career website. Received an email invite for an online assessment a couple days later. After I successfully passed that, I received another invite for another online assessment (about a week later). One week after that, I received an email request for a phone interview. I conducted that and was scheduled for a in-person interview with the hiring manager the next day. I didn't think things went so well (my interviewer seemed distracted and not really engaged), but I received an email the following day for my information to conduct my background/reference check. I got a call back 2 weeks later offering me the position.

    Application Details

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

    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.
