    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Telstra.

    Interview

    It was over Video Conference - the Video unit was not the greatest and felt like perhaps at times when I was answering questions they were looking at my forehead. I get the person I'd be supporting travels a lot but this wasn't the greatest interview experience I've had. I felt comfortable and confident but the setup was not the greatest for a 30 minute interview

    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Telstra (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    For this specific role, they opted for a 4-step Selection Process.

    Step 1: Make a 2-minute video clip about one of the given topics (how to rehabilitate Manila, how to revive the OPM/Phil. cinema, hould celebrities join politics and what should be the right percentage of tax). They also said that it has to be creative, informative, and out of the box.

    Step 2: A skype interview

    Step 3: Group Dynamics

    Step 4: 1:1 interview focused on the Data Analytics exercise/assignment. They send a document with performance figures that should be transformed into a Powerpoint presentation.

    • Did not proceed with the application
    • Their selection process is too complicated and redundant. The role is for a live chat process and the 2-min. video clip is NOT AT ALL related to the job description
    • Read from other reviews that the company has the tendency to complicate their org structure, processes, and projects.
    • Their previous and current employees also said that they don't have a great culture and compensation package. All of the people I talked to said they want to transfer to other companies.
    • I feel that if their hiring process is this demanding and untelated to the role, there is a tendency that they may demand things like this from their own employees.
    • These information were sent on a Sunday to take place within the next 3 days.
    • They didn't do an initial phone interview to screen the candidates or provide clarifications on expectations.

    Commercial Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Telstra in February 2015.

    Interview

    - Phone screen and psychometric test 4 weeks after initial application.
    - Recruiter interview 1 week later.
    - In person interview with the hiring manager 3 weeks after that.
    - Job offer 5 weeks later and only after pushing.

    The interview process was very personable, using the STAR method (though Telstra call it something else), and I was prompted with ways to think around questions I couldn't answer well initially. It felt like a very long drawn out process, however long processes are just as standard with many other large companies. Part of this was impatience on my part, and HR did what they could to speed up the process and kept me in the loop the whole time.
