    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Australia Post.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely difficult. They gave only 15 seconds to prepare and the questions were very abstract and related to certain behavioural qualities. There was only four questions and I don't think you could pause between them. I went in unprepared and that was definitely a mistake - I greatly regret missing out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Australia Post (Brisbane (Australia)).

    Interview

    Telephone interview with HR and then a face to face with a Delivery Manager. This was when part-time Postal Delivery Officer positions were relatively new and their was still a reasonable amount of work (2009). I was a university student and they seemed to prefer a candidate who had something that would stop them wanting full-time work.

    User Experience Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Australia Post (Melbourne (Australia)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First round was a phone interview with the manager of the role.

    Second round was on site in Melbourne with three other managers, having to present on UX ideas for the product in future. Two friendly though the UX Directors seemed keen to attack me as a candidate.

    Follow-up non-existent, in fact *technically* (6 months later) I'm still waiting to hear back from them, despite the recruiter chasing them multiple times. Conveys the impression that they think candidates aren't worthy of the most basic respect, which might be a clue as to why Australia Post has such a bad reputation and performance.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Australia Post in September 2015.

    Interview

    Mostly paperwork and phonecalls, they do background checks, police checks, medical checkups. All must be submitted before specific date or the shift will be given to someone else even if you were offered it initially.

    They often do not call again so the initial phone call, from a private number, must be answered as chances are they will just move onto the next person if you do not pick up the phone

    Interview Questions

    • When can you start work is the most important question since they have specific shifts in mind. They usually follow up with do you have your own transport to get to the facility as there is no public transport nearby.   1 Answer
