    NONE Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bunnings Warehouse (Belmont, WA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for a job at a new store and was given a phone interview, the guy asked me a few questions along the lines of "What skills or hobbies do you have that you feel will be of use in an area at Bunnings?" so basically if you enjoy woodwork or something you'd mention that or if you grow plants you might be suited to the horticulture section you could also say you love socializing I suppose which would make you well suited to talk to customers or work the registers. He also asked "Why do you want to work at bunnings?" and "why do you think you are right for the job?" and he also asked when I'm available and if I have any other jobs. Keep in mind they did say they would record answers, I assume they would come up in the one on one interviews so you'd best remember your answers, I never made it that far because I cancelled my group interview because I was offered another job before it happened :)

    Interview Questions

    • Probably when he asked what hobbies or skills do I have that could be applied to an area of the store, once the interview was over I thought of a lot more than the one example I gave but it was obviously enough to get me through to the group interview so I'm pleased.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bunnings Warehouse (Gosford (Australia)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    After being notified that I had been invited for a phone interview, and having accepted that invitation online with a day and time of my choice I received a friendly phone call for the initial phone interview with Bunnings. It only lasted about 5-10 mins and is the first screening process for selected applicants. As long as you can speak clearly and confidently you should go through without a problem I would expect.

    Interview Questions

    • I was told that if I were selected for the Group interview then I would receive an email the following week. I'm waiting to hear if I've made it through.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bunnings Warehouse (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    There was a job opening so a friend who worked there passed on my resume. Had a phone interview within a week (basic interview questions) and then I proceeded onto the group interview. Got a call within another week saying I was successful and asked for a one-on-one interview. Was interviewed by 1 person and the other was taking notes - turns out the one taking notes was the store manager, would have been nice to been told! This didn't affect the interview, got the job, had induction for 2 days (paid for & lunch provided) and started the job within 3 weeks!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bunnings Warehouse (Wollongong (Australia)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Set up a profile including resume on Bunnings website. Applied online when I received a job alert via email. Within a few days, I was invited to book a phone interview with one of the listed times. The interview lasted about ten mins. I was asked why I wanted to work for Bunnings, name a time when I had to deal with a difficult customer and how I resolved the issue, how do I know that I have a good work day, days and hours available, what was I looking for in terms of full time, permanent part time or casual work. The next day, I received an email, inviting me to book a time for a group interview. I attended the group interview in a few days time, along with about twenty other applicants. We were divided into groups of four. You didn't have a choice who you sat with in a group. We were asked to stand up and introduce ourselves, tell the group about our work history and then name our favourite movie. We were then asked to build/create a product with the craft materials ( paper plates, paddle pop sticks, small black felt cones, coloured pipe cleaners, wooden skewers and tape) on the table. We had to come up with a marketing strategy to pitch to Bunnings, a price, and how we were going to present it to the group. I had dominating and loud people in my group and I found it very difficult to get involved in the creating and discussion part. All the groups took it in turns to present their products. We then watched a video of a person walking into a Bunnings store and pretending to be a customer. We were asked to note down all of the negative and positive things we saw in the video. A co-ordinator was asking us questions about what we saw on the video. When this was done, then the session was over. There was also a small plate of wrapped lollies in the middle of all tables. There was a co-ordinator with a clip board and paper, who was evaluating each applicant at their respective tables. We were told to check our emails in the next few days. We were also told in the group interview by the complex manager that they had asked 70 applicants to the group interviews for only 5-10 positions. I received an email within two days telling me that my application was not progressing any further.
