Phone interview + in person interview + reference check. The whole process was very applicant friendly. Most timeframes were met.

Fairly relaxed setting. Was asked a lot about my interests and hobbies outside of work with a couple technical questions. Technical questions were focused on problem solving.

I had phone interview initially. As I was based in Christchurch, they kindly offered to do the interview through Skype. The team leader and a person from HR interviewed me. No question was inappropriate - very professional.

First was one phone interview. Which was just basic questions about what I had done during uni, work experience and hobbies. Then I had a face to face with the Christchurch team, which was more of a conversation very relaxed. I also had a skype interview with the Wellington office and again very relaxed just getting to know what your about.

My interview was a little different as I changed roles internally. My initial interview when I first started with Stantec was good. It involved a meeting with a team leader and senior in the team I was applying to join. They were very friendly and asked questions not only about my skills with different software and any experience but also what my strengths and weaknesses are etc.

I was hired from a company that got bought out so it's not like this anymore. I had a skype interview with HR and an in-office interview with the second in command. No assessments or anything.

After applying I believe I was interviewed initially in person by two team leads and then later by the team lead for the role

Really consider why you want the role at this company beforehand. You may want it, but it is sometimes difficult to put this into words, so I suggest you think of this in advance. Also think outside of the technical requirements of the role and how you will fit in with the team. They will likely be looking at this to.
Graduate, New Zealand
Try to have a couple of different scenarios in your head about when you showed leadership, team building, time management, and pressure.
Graduate, New Zealand
Be able to articulate what you are passionate about and your strengths and weaknesses. Also ask questions about the role and company so you can determine if it is the right fit for you.
Midlevel, New Zealand
Say when you don't know something, then say how you would approach finding it out. Don't um and ah and half- ass answering something you don't know. Also, ask questions of the interviewer such as: what will the company expect of me: what will the company do to support me to meet these expectations
