Senior IT Domain Specialist Interview

Senior IT Domain Specialist
Melbourne (Australia)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Telstra in April 2012.

Interview Details – It is a classic case of Telstra delegating the management of the hiring process to an incompetent recruitment agency called Talent International. Telstra does not care how the agent behaves as long as the agent is able to recommend a suitable candidate. In my case, the agent required me to pay for my own air fares to travel to Melbourne, then asked me to reschedule my travel at my own costs, then put me through psychometric tests, then - after 1.5 month - told me that they recommended someone local over me just because they presumed that I don't have any agile software development management experience, which was clearly a false claim. The agent actually told me that I passed the interviews and received very appreciative feedbacks and that I also performed well in all the psychometric and personality tests. I just listened to the agent and chose to let them have their way because I was already dreading the prospects of facing the difficulties of relocating to Melbourne without my family.

Interview Question – When you know that the business will suffer because your immediate manager is too afraid of his peer (potential political back clash) to back your business case justification on the Captital Review Board, what did you do?   View Answer
