    Technical Officer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deakin University.

    Interview

    Went for an interview quite a while back, answered questions discussing technical stuff. Later turned out that most of the stuff I discussed was too deep for them. The interview was typical, the boss was an old woman who had no problems interrupting people in the middle of sentences, and gave a dictatorial vibe, the others seemed intimidated by her. Two of the other interviewers seemed nervous and flinched sometimes when I made eye contact during my answers. Overall the questions were vague, and I got the feeling that my answers were going over their heads . Later I heard that they had hired someone they know.
    I would advise people from going to their interviews, because most of the time they hire people they know, and basically hold sham interviews to fill out the paperwork, and uphold the pretence of a fair chance, since it is a public university.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deakin University (Geelong (Australia)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Typical Interview questions and discussion, 4 interviewer following protocol of interview questions, not very personal, approximately 10-15 questions, most of them very outcome focused and future orientated, open discussion at the end, but interviewer did not leave much space for thinking, expected prompt answers (as of my feeling), felt pressured.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deakin University (Melbourne (Australia)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Thee interviewers. 2 from the job department and one from a different department
    They greet well and start asking general question like where are you from, your education etc.
    They ask if you have had any experience previously.
    Even though everything is mentioned on CV, I think they are looking on how you react to questions and how well you will interact to queries.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deakin University (Melbourne (Australia)) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process. They short listed the applicants and followed up with a phone interview. The interview was focused on skills and how you want to progress research. I got an offer within 30 days after the interview. It surprised me that I only had to do the phone interview. I was living overseas, so they may not have had the budget to fly people in. It tells me though that they are pretty skill driven, rather than behavioural driven

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was very predictable. No unexpected questions   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little room for negotiation. They have set levels of pay.
