    Casual Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Submitted application online, asked to do an online video interview which required me to record 5 videos answering their questions. Then it's the final stage where the store manager takes on you and ask some behavioral questions since it's a casual position. Overall the process didn't take long, but it's casual so your mileage may vary.

    Vacation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Extremely fast process considering there were 4 stages in total. Great communication in between the stages as well, received txts to check our email inbox when something important was sent. Recommend attending the Tech:Connect event as it gave more insight about the process and company. What I loved most about the application was that you could retake your video interview as many times as you wanted over 3 days, and the case study in final interview was given 2 days prior which seemed more realistic to real life work as oppose to putting you on the spot. You also get to talk to a graduate 1-on-1 for a few minutes before your final interview which helps you get into conversation and feel more relaxed! 2 interviewers (both very friendly).
    Cons: Being designated to a specific area in Networks for the vacation program without really knowing why. Telling us there’d likely be situational questions when there was only one.

    Graduate Interview

    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.
