    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Anglo American (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Firstly is a video interview followed by online assessments, Then it took 2 weeks to proceed. The final interview is smoothly, normal question asked. I think I did a good job in answering all the questions with enough information searched online. However, I did not get an offer, maybe because I have no previous experience in commodity market.

    Senior Human Resources Interim Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Contacted well over two months ago, but still waiting for interview confirmation and being kept dangling whilst things get shuffled around internally. Even given the festive season in between this is far too long. In-house Recruiter is a personal contact of mine so adds a certain level of awkwardness to things given the lack of professionalism on Anglo's part. Such long timeframes are not acceptable for the interim market. Needless to say have since taken another role. Disappointing experience overall.

    Computerised tests involved quick maths calculations for job grade 6 (professional and junior management) and problem solving through interpreting symbols for grade 5 (mid management).
