    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

    Interview Details

    3 Interview rounds:
    1. Phone interview
    2. Psychometric testing / Group Assessment
    3. 1:1 interview w/ HR

    Not much in terms of 'difficult' questions, no google-esque brainteasers. Talk about yourself and what you've done and you should be OK.

    Mostly the questions were behavioural style, e.g. "tell me about a difficult situation that you needed to overcome", "tell me about a time when...." etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Not many unexpected questions, probably do the STAR technique (situation, task, action, result) for all the behavioural type questions and you'll be fine.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Unable to really negotiate as a grad.

    Interview Details

    Work culture and people involved within the interview process were great, they were all very helpful. HR was probably one of the nicest and friendliest teams I've come across. It was fairly straight forward involving a group task (case study and presentation) then individual interview with two managers.

    Interview Questions
    • The individual interview is very unstructured and they may ask unexpected questions about your resume or choices   Answer Question

Luckily I had talented work that got me through the interview and secure me a role.
