The interview process was incredibly organized. The HR team got back to me after each interview within a very short time frame. Prior to commencing work I got a call from my line manager to confirm my start date / answer any questions etc.
Graduate, Melbourne
My Interview was not quite so mainstream. I was overseas for my entire application process and therefore I initially submitted my application online. After this round you are notified if you are successful or not & from there an initial interview is held, and a secondary interview if you were shortlisted. I was able to complete both of these interviews via Skype. In between the interviews there were sets of psychometric tests.

Interviews where formal with 2 in person interviews and phone interviews taking place - over all the process was very succinct taking place over only a few weeks, the interviewers were clear in intention and ensured that the role was what I as the interviewee was expecting and where clear on their expectations of what I would be able to achieve.
