    National Manager Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at SuperPartners in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very quick and thorough process. Was contacted direct by a member of the recruitment team who did a detailed interview over the phone to see if both sides would match each other. Very engaging manner about the recruitment person, as you could see they really liked working there, and won’t just ‘selling’ the company. I was brought in for a meeting with the manager of the area; then told at the end of the interview I would need to come back in and meet some peers.
    After 4 days of interview and Psyche testing (for future development purposes) an offer was made.
    Negotiation on salary was very simple. I stated what I was on, and what I expected. They admitted that they may not pay as much as some companies – but they would pay fair. They actually said I would be paid more in the role if offered as they wanted to make sure they paid to the correct grading of the position. Amazed at this attitude – as most other companies will see ‘bargain’ as opposed to Superpartners seeing it as ‘retention’.
    Very thorough process

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions really - behaviour based. Maybe trickiest was "If you only had 24 hrs to get a feel of the role / area - what would you do?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Consultant Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SuperPartners in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied for a different role (Marketing Analyst) and got rejected via email but my CV was transferred by the recruiter to another recruiter as they thought I would be good for a different role (that's nice!).
    Got a call from the recruiter who presented to me the role, and we met the next day for a first interview. The discussion was very pleasant and constructive, since I had been in more senior role in the past they really wanted to manage my expectations and ensure I was fine not being in a managing role. At the end they told me that the next step would be for me to meet with 2 team members I would have to work with.
    I did the second interview with them within a couple days. The second interview was more focused on my adaptability and how I manage difficulties/issues. Again, the two ladies I met were very engaging and nice. I got a call back the day after and got offered the role.

    Interview Questions
    • Having worked in environments with very advanced/state of the art systems/softwares, how would I be as efficient using their own system (which they said was really not very user friendly and advanced).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at SuperPartners in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to SP by a supplier to Superpartners who was impressed by how they did business. After a good telephone interview with a recruitment consultant I was booked in for an interview with my now manager. Interview went for roughly an hour. I was contacted the next day and was asked for 2 referees. Two days after that I was called and told that I had been successful. Over all a good, quick and easy process.

    Interview Questions
    • The behavioural questions are tough, so have examples of your experience ready. They use Situation, Action and Outcome, other companies use STAR. They are pretty much the same.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    We had a simple discussion about salary. In saying that the expectation was set by the Recruitment Consultant during my first phone interview so there were no surprises. I have had pay rises since joining.

    Team Administrator Interview

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

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SuperPartners in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a very positive experience for me.

    I was put forward for the role by my recruitment agency and following an initial telephone interview which took me through a high level review of my CV, I was invited in for an face to face interview. The consultant provided me with excellent directions on the company's location, and this was followed up by a confirmation email wit date/time and who I was meeting with.

    On the day of the interview, I was greeted promptly and felt welcome from the start. The interview took place with the consultant managing the role and the manager of the area and took ~ an hour. The questions probed into more deeply into the skills I had gained in my previous roles and their relevance to the role I was applying for as well as covering a range of behavioral type questions.

    Throughout the process I was kept informed of the next steps and provided with detailed information to be able to complete the background check requirements and referee details.

    I was verbally offered the role, and I received the contact paperwork ~ 2 days later. It was a simple process of reviewing the contract, signing a number of documents and returning them all in the envelope provided.

    Finally, on my first day I was again greeted by the consultant who interviewed me and then introduced to a member of my new team who took me through my first day.

    Interview Questions
    • Unfortunately I am not the best at discussing my achievements and strengths, and subsequently found answering some questions difficult. Recognising this in my answers, both interviewers were very good at rephrasing questions so as to obtain the answers they were seeking without making me feel anxious or nervous about my skills.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Having had discussions with my recruitment agency as to the expected salary range for this role, I was prepared for salary discussions that occurred during the interview. I felt confident that what i was being offered was within the market range for the role and was happy with the offer.
