    Legal Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Sydney (Australia)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Intense with a lot of interaction. Questions seemed to be odd and circuitous rather than related to the position. Decision making seemed irratic and unfocused. Overall seems to be a very good company. Perhaps most disappointing was the complete lack of feedback following the interview. Just adding more here to make the minimum word count required. And more, and more and more and more and more.
