    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Newmont Australia in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were through a recruitment company. My resume was sent through on a Monday afternoon, interviewed lunchtime of the next day.

    Panel consisted of three employees - 1 from HR, 2 from the relevant department. Questions ranged from skillset to problem-solving examples. Panel members seemed a bit dry, but easy-going. Questions I asked (which they liked) were to do with environment and social responsibility, typical contracts and portfolio, and why they initially wanted to work for the company, and what they now think is the best aspect of working there.

    References were called that afternoon, and job offer made on Thursday. I would advise other interview candidates, regardless of the position, make sure you take time to think about your answer before you speak.

Newmont Australia accounts for almost a quarter of both Newmont Mining's sales and reserves. The unit was brought under the Newmont umbrella with the 2002 acquisition of Normandy Mining. It also had a zinc and copper production facility but sold its Golden Grove operations, located in Western Australia's Outback, to Oxiana for just over $200 million. The deal was in keeping with Newmont's intention to focus on its core... More
