    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Telstra.

    Interview

    Online testing questions were very difficult, especially the numerical reasoning ones which were confusing and had large time constraints. Definitely practice a lot of these before starting. Video interview you have 72 hours to record so you can practice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne (Australia)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It started with submitting the online application (i.e. CV, short answer questions). Once passing through that step we were sent a link to complete online psychometric/aptitude testing. Once passing that, then an online/video interview. This was not with an actual person, but just responding to questions aloud. After that we were invited on-site for an interview. I had 2 people in my interview (hiring manager and someone from HR). Then a few days later came the offer.
