    Interview Questions
    • i can tell that he was not experienced in interviewing people as his questions were pretty shallow and not organized. and i believe such confusion happened as their expectation was different from my experience as they seemed to be interested in a more technical role while my experience is more towards management.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SEEK in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Multi-step process - two interviews via Skype (as I was not a Melbourne resident at the time) with senior engineers, team members and even HR. Two more interviews in-person (was flown to Melbourne by the company) with the Delivery / Development Managers, Business Development Managers and Ops Manager. They are definitely switched-on and even experienced professionals will be tested (15 years operations with 5yrs config management in my case)

    They are also fairly keen on their psychometric testing (I felt the specific test wasn't culturally appropriate, very US-centric) and interpersonal relations, and pride themselves on their "non-corporate" relaxed business culture. The administrative staff and technical folks are laid back, friendly and helpful folks and they do have a fairly good working environment, albeit a little kitschy with slides and gumball machines, from what little I got to experience in the short time I was there.

    SEEK conduct their own reference checks and will go outside the referees you provide if they feel the listed ones are not as senior as they require - without any prior consent or consultation with the candidate. This can pose problems if you have vexatious former managers/team leads willing to give negative references.

    BE WARNED: SEEK HR *will* deny access to information requested by candidates and requests for confidentiality are flagrantly ignored. Very unprofessional and a black mark on an otherwise good experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SEEK in January 2007.

    Interview Details

    Seek employs people based on attitude more than anything else. You will impress them if you are young, confident, out going, smart, fashionable, smooth and relaxed. You want to make sure that you have read some web articles about the latest ideas and terminology in your area and can throw around terminology and concepts with confidence. Dont worry they are not going to drill down on anything because they don't know it themselves. They want the "in crowd", " the popular kids".

    The key is confidence, confidence, CONFIDENCE.

    Dont say anything negative or they will drill down, drill down, drill down and then your out.
