    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Yara (Perth, Western Australia (Australia)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interview with a panel of 3, HR Leader, Integration Manager and General Manager of process plant (technical ammonium nitrate). Fairly straight forward interview done in a friendly atmosphere, more technical questions than behavioural questions. Encouraged me to ask questions at the end, which I did but the answers provided were not too descriptive as if they didn't want to give too much away.

    Interview Questions

    • What contributions can you bring which will add to our extensive safety framework?.   Answer Question
    • How have you dealt with a troublesome work colleague in the past?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Two days after interview I received an email informing me that I have advanced to next stage (referee checks and medical examination). Seem keen to advance quite quickly.
