    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Australian Taxation Office (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Initially I was asked to complete the standard psychometric test. Then invited to a 2 on 1 interview where I met with the grad recruiter and a grad from the previous year. They asked a lot of questions to test your knowledge on the Australian Taxation system, then afterwards you are required to sit a series of computer tests to assess your analytical skills and problem solving skills.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Australian Taxation Office (Adelaide (Australia)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was around twenty minutes long. There were lots of people waiting in the foyer and more than one room with different ATO staff interviewing. They asked some basic questions about computer functions and some situation based questions. I think they were looking for the STAR model. That is situation, task, action, result. The interview was very relaxed and the staff were nice although I felt like they were all just going through the motions. It was a very bureaucratic process.

    The recruitment process was drawn out and tedious. Alot of waiting in between contact. However i did make it thought online testing, to the final interview stage and even had my referees checked. the interview consisted on a 30 min talk with 2 managers who asked behavioural questions. they mentioned that they prefered answers in the STAR format - situation, task, action, result. after the interview i was then taken to a room with 2 other grads and we completed online testing individually. this consisted of maths / numerical, and a business case study where you had to read over an article and answer questions.
