    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dixon Advisory (Canberra (Australia)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Some challenging questions, but easy to answer if well prepared. It was an entry level job so there weren't many questions about my previous experience. Clear interview process and generally positive focus. In two stages - first with the general manager and senior manager, then with my two direct managers.

    Graduate Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dixon Advisory (Melbourne (Australia)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    There was a brief phone interview. Followed by a request to do an online assessment. They have a benchmark for the online assessment which automatically cuts you out if you don't meet it. They won't tell you how you did or what their benchmark is. It's verbal, mathematical, and logic SHL testing. I practised for days beforehand, and didn't meet the benchmark in the maths or logic but apparently did in the verbal. It's seems a very narrow way to determine someone's suitability. I've averaged HDs for all my degree and was always in the top group of students.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? Why accounting? Tell me a bit about yourself. The interviewer was very informal and easy to talk to.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dixon Advisory (Sydney (Australia)) in September 2016.

    Two face-to-face interviews with two senior managers at a time.

    No technical questions, but some industry (global economics) related questions.
    Mainly personal motivational questions and was really more of a conversation than an interview.
    Very nice interviewers, who I ended up working under in the internship.
    No human resources interviews/phone calls.
    HR were very nice and quick to inform me of each next stage of the process.

That is impossible at Dixon. From the CEO all the way down to your other team members, everyone is invested in your growth and professional development. The job itself is extremely demanding and because of that everyone is there is to guide you along the way and make sure that you know how to get your job done. The job itself is full of rewarding learning experiences including: construction industry knowledge, business knowledge, professional development, and so much more. Everything you learn as an APM set's you up to continue your career at Dixon. Being a woman in this industry has it's hard moments but Dixon is aware of this and creates a work environment that prevents any discrimination. Not to mention Dixon is a part of PWC (Professional Women in Construction) and attends all of their events, which are awesome! I am extremely happy I joined the team and have only been here for about 6 months, but I have learned more in those 6 months than a year at a previous company.” – Full Review
