    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Australian Taxation Office (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2017.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Australian Taxation Office (Canberra (Australia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview refreshingly included only a small review of my past experience. I felt that they had read my resume and were happy to move forward. The conversation was exciting as there was a lot of discussion about the possibilities for the marketing of the area/product. The interviewers assumed I had done my research and was prepared for a discussion.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Australian Taxation Office (Sydney (Australia)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was typical of most graduate positions. It involved a multiple choice questionnaire, an online cognitive test, an online video interview, an assessment center and finally an offer. The assessment center consisted of three stages conduct over the course of three hours. A written exercise, a group activity and a face-to-face interview.

    Overall my interview experience with the ATO was professional and although it involved a lot of waiting at times, it was never longer than how long they predicated processing the applications would take.

    Client Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Australian Taxation Office (Adelaide (Australia)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was around twenty minutes long. There were lots of people waiting in the foyer and more than one room with different ATO staff interviewing. They asked some basic questions about computer functions and some situation based questions. I think they were looking for the STAR model. That is situation, task, action, result. The interview was very relaxed and the staff were nice although I felt like they were all just going through the motions. It was a very bureaucratic process.
