I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Dixon Advisory in April 2012.
Interview Details – 1. Online Application
Consider what role you're applying for and emphasise the skills you have which are congruent with that work role. Make sure you have a pretty good understanding on the team preferences you choose.
2. Psychometric Testing
If you pass the online applications, they email you a link to do psychometric testing - verbal, numerical and logical reasoning. Testing is done by SHL.
3. Phone Conversation/Behavioural Test
If you pass the psych testing, you'll get a call from HR. They might ask you a few basic questions, such as "why do you want to work for Dixon?", but nothing too intense. They'll book you in for either a 1:1 or panel interview and get you to complete a behavioural online test. The behavioural test isn't assessed.
You'll get an interview for each of your preferences. Interviews are scheduled to last an hour. Expect the standard behavioural questions which require the STAR approach. If you have mentioned technical ability/experience in your application, be prepared to answer some technical questions. They want to see how confident you are in expressing your technical knowledge. Also, make sure you research not only the company but also the industry you're applying for. For instance, I was asked about major reforms in legislation in providing financial advise.
5. Final Interview/Offer
After the first interview, they'll usually know who to offer positions too. However, if they're really torn between a select few applicants, they may call you in for a final, deciding interview.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Dixon Advisory in February 2012.
Interview Details – The company was candid through the whole process. Gave good feedback from the process. HR was easy to talk too.
Interview Question – Why funds management? Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Dixon Advisory in July 2010.
Interview Details – The directors whom interviewed me are nice and friendly. However, they are essentially not from the department I was applying to and they could not answer my more specific questions. Dixon doesnt seem to take the interviews too seriously as one of my friend got his interview resheduled 3 times and in the end was interviewed by an analyst.
