    Product Owner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at TELUS.

    Interview

    Long winded and very choppy - I was bounced around to a few different people and two of the four people i was in contact with stopped working there during my interview process (might have been let go/quit?). I was called in for an interview but wasn't given a date or time and then I got radio silence from them - due to the fact that my contacts suddenly stopped working there.

    Anyway, it just seems like their team is poorly organized and there's very little communication going on across teams and within the HR team as well.

    I seem to have just "fallen off", even after being bounced around various people and frequently checking in. They just stopped responding to my messages.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TELUS (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in June 2017.

    First, I had to take an online behavioral test sent from the recruiter. I was then contacted by an HR recruiting representative and had a quick 15 minute over the phone interview. A day later, I received a call from the store manager and went in for a face to face interview. There were 2 people interviewing me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TELUS.

    Interview

    Direct to consumers is a door to door sales position. The Summer Student Sales Representative hiring event took place at Telus HQ with dozens of student at a time. The group of students get to hear a presentation about the job and how great it is. Be careful because it is not Telus that hires the sales people, it's a company known as Upstat Marketing which Telus contracts to do their sales. The guys are really charismatic and they merely use the Telus HQ to affirm it's legitimacy. Talking to other students there, alot of us thought this job was super sketchy. Do your research on Upstat Marketing before you commit to the job because that's who you are really working for.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TELUS (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about a week later from HR where I was asked a few questions to get to know my work background a little better. She then schedules an interview with the store manager for a few days after. The interview took about an hour, and a lot of it was the manager telling me exactly what the job entails. Because I had previous wireless sales experience he also asked a lot of questions about that. He calls me about two days later and says he already filled the position but forwarded my resume to a store closer to me who was hiring as well. I went in for another interview with that manager, where the interview also took about an hour. Same type of questions that I had with the previous interview. That manager calls me about two days later and offers me the job.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at TELUS (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and then got a call the next day about an interview. The application process was relatively fast. I had to go through two interviews and it definitely didn't fit the job title and description that I applied for. The sales associate position mostly seemed like it would be for the in store retail environment but she told me it would be trade shows, events, door to door and so on which I was uncomfortable with. It seemed sketchy because it didn't feel like I really earned the job as they were more of trying to sell the job to me. What I thought would be a sales associate turned out to be a junior marketing consultant which felt like a lot more work than I intended for. And the hours were crazy as it required you to work full time with 9-6 shifts mon-fri and 12-8 on Saturdays. The pay would be good but it just wasn't what I was looking for as they kept talking about manager positions and how to get promoted in the company trying to sell this job to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at TELUS (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very good 1st interview phone screen....HR handled this very well....however the potential second interview was not handled very well...they expected candidates to do a business case as part of the 2nd interview...this is known as free consulting and stealing your IP....because of this ask...I withdrew from the process....this seems to be the standard protocol with the big 3 telecoms....so beware if you decide to interview with any of these companies.
