    Interview Details

    I was approached by the hiring manager, by email, to possibly run project as I had previously taken oberon elf his (floundering) projects and team members had spoken highly of me. I met with him in his office (normal meeting rooms in an operational area) and he explained the role. We discussed the rate and he didn't have any significant questions for me.

    IT Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Sydney (Australia)
    Anonymous Employee in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Westpac Banking in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is not very efficient. Took up to 1.5-2 weeks to let applicants know if they progressed to the next stage for phone interview! Then took ages to respond after the phone and assessment centre stages.

    Phone interviews are all situational behavioural questions.

    Assessment centre included 1 face-to-face interview, 1 individual presentation on given material and 1 group exercise.

    Face to face interview included 7 behavioural questions:
    1. Industry trends.
    2. Out of your comfort zone.
    3. Career aspirations.
    4. Challenges faced by banks.
    5. Complex situation.
    6. Latest news involving Westpac.
    7. I forgot the last question. :(

    Individual presentation was about dealing with a merger and what steps you would take to make sure everything is smooth. Deliver a 6 minute presentation to the board of executives about your recommendations as to how to proceed. Information provided was very vague and so I encourage candidates to watch youtube case study videos on mergers.

    Group presentation was about discussing ideas for a new app, encouraging the group to go with your idea or the best idea and pitching to the executives.

    I interviewed online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Westpac Banking in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    The initial communication with the company was good, its online application was very easy to understand and follow. A minimum university mark is required and if that is fulfilled an automated online test will appear to test your basic numerical and verbal skills. Then there is a long wait for around 2-3 weeks and after that phone interviews are conducted and followed by group assessment centre
