    Telecommunications Traineeship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    The process took around 4mths starting with sending my cv in, phone interview, online test and lastly a group session at the Telstra training session in Melb that was group activities and a panel interview.
    Honestly thought that everything went really well and was told on the Friday that we would find out on the Monday/Tuesday. Waited till Thursday still didn't hear anything so called to follow up. Later received an email saying was unsuccessful with no feedback or anything. For a big company it's pretty upsetting you have o sit around and wait so long then to be told nothing but if you're interested apply for future job. I don't know how I can take so many days off work in order to keep applying for a process that takes so long.
    Good luck to everyone that applies in the future. I hope the process is faster and more successful than mine.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    There are several steps. First, you will need to fill out the application forms online. Then they will send your online tests ( Situational Judgment Test and Cognitive Reasoning Assessments). Once you pass the two tests, you will be processed to video interview steps, where you need to answer several interview questions. The video interview can be recorded many times so that you can try to be your best. Next is the assessment center and last is the final interview. I was not lucky enough to get through the video interview, so I know little about the following processes...

    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call, interview was setup, had face-to-face interview and then cold silence for over a month. The follow-up with the internal recruiter met no response. I am left to feel it was a waste of time to share my excitement for the role and meet the team that made no contact to either provide feedback or a decision. While I understand there are always large volumes of applicants for a role. not getting back to them for being "busy" is no excuse/ My advice : Don't bother applying.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne (Australia)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The application process was quite quick. After the submission online, there was then invitation for the testing and then a video interview. Testing was not out of the ordinary compared to other similar summer vac programs. The video interview allowed to unlimited attempts, so it allowed to really perfect the final product and no doubt favour those keen to thoroughly research and prepare. The final interview was very much behavioural based questions, with only a few questions which seemed off-script.
