    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne (Australia)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Process started with situational and numerical online testing. After a few days of completing the tests, I received an email to complete a video montage (heaps of companies are doing these now!) which was relatively easy but a bit awkward. It wasn't until a month later I received a phone call offering me a face-to-face interview. This interview was with two managers, and I had to prepare a 5 minute presentation on a case study the sent me 48 hours before the interview.
