    Commercial Manager Interview

    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.
