    Pros

    Work environment has been significantly improved since Ian McLeod came on board - more open and friendly atmosphere, supportive teams, good leadership.

    Cons

    Insufficient parking allocations, poor catering, new open plan seating arrangements a little too cramped in some departments and very male-dominated environment.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunities for lower level staff to participate in decision-making activities in order to get more involved in the business.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coles Group (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    Overall a relatively standard approach however demonstrated evidence of structured process and automation.
    Began with an over the phone pre-screening interview by the HR Consultant. If successful organise immediate 60 minute face to face interview. 2 person panel for Senior Management/Executive level function. Roughly 30 minutes of quick and formal questioning followed by 15 minute case study.

    Interview Questions

    • Specific, almost detailed examples of influencing challenging stakeholders and direct achievements.   Answer Question
