    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne (Australia)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Literally one of the worst graduate processes out there, long, time consuming and awful communication. Too much preparation and too much is expected of you for so little, they do not hold their end of the bargain and don't even bother replying to you when you have questions. I do not recommend that anybody applies for Telstra, they are a waste of time and I can't believe that I even bothered to apply and go to the assessment centre and then the interview on two seperate occasions. They advertise a lot, but their workplace is awful and the people I had the interview with were boring and uninspiring.

    Usual, long interview process. Although i didn't get the job, i got through to the video interview and the questions were extremely specific and hard. Overall, it seems like a pretty cool company and its changing into a tech company.
