I interviewed at Metro Trains

Interview

Got a call from a HR person who wanted to schedule an interview the next day. Did not give me any further information. The interview lasted 30 minutes with this HR person and another person who is in the same role as the advertised role. I found him very unprofessional - was looking away from the screen, seemed uninterested from the very start. Dressed like he was on a basketball court. Asked me to talk about my career and that's that. I could easily sense that he was threatened by the fact that my skills though relevant for the job were much more than he could ever fathom. PS this guy was in the role only for 3 months, wouldn't it have made sense to include a more experienced person within IT to sit in the interview? His answers to my questions were very basic and often he looked away from his computer as if he was least interested. Did not ask me even 1 technical question related to the job and the feedback I got from the HR a couple of days later was this person felt I could not work in a complex environment! No situational questions, no questions to test my knowledge in Service Delivery but yet i get this feedback. The worst interview I have had!

Interview Questions
  • 4 Questions - 1. Talk to us about your experience. 2. Why are you interested in this role and MTM? 3. What excites you about being a Service Delivery Manager? 4. Believe it or not the HR asked me to talk about my experience in Problem Management because she felt the primary interviewer (SDM) was not asking any questions.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Metro Trains (Melbourne) in Sep 2021

Interview

Unprofessional - the interviewers kept cutting each other off. They seemed to have no idea what they were doing. The reporting manager on multiple occasions said the job was to get her organised because she wasn't. Additionally, the requirements of the job did not meet the JD or the title. They said I would hear back either way, however I heard nothing back. I even, emailed after to ask when we would hear and still nothing.

Interview Questions
  • How does your previous experience relate to the current role and what unique skills will you bring?

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Metro Trains (Melbourne) in Jan 2021

Interview

so far I've had 3 engagements: A) HR to verify my details and schedule other meetings. B) Initial interview was 1-1 video-call with hiring manager of the team, relatively informal, plenty of 2-way discussion about the proposed role, my experience and suitability. C) 2-1 more formal interview with planned set of questions related to the role, dealing with 'challenging' situations, architecture processes, stakeholder engagement. Next steps would be a selection to a short-list, then final interview with a couple of peers/team mates to assess 'fit' - to be continued ...

Interview Questions
  • Describe the types of artefacts or documents and where/how each was used to communicate a proposed solution architecture?

I applied online. The process took 12 months. I interviewed at Metro Trains (Melbourne) in Jun 2019

Interview

Long process took over 2 years ( also longer due to covid19) Basically it was a multi step process that consisted of a group interview, online interview, psychometric testing, personality test, police check and a medical.

Interview Questions
  • STAR type questions, very much safety orientated. You don't need to know much about metro or trains to get this job, its all about the way you might handle a stressful situation or how you understand and incorporate safety in the work place.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Metro Trains (Melbourne) in Mar 2019

Interview

I applied online via Seek. Was contacted quickly and the internal recruiter was very flexible in terms of fitting the interview into my schedule. Interview questions were well written, role specific and clearly designed to find the right candidate. The interview was a positive experience. Post interview - negative experience. Didn't get the role with no feedback given. However the same role was advertised again weeks later and another similar role. Rung recruiter and asked if it was worth me applying again and would they also consider me for the other role. Was told that I'd be contacted soon with some feedback from the first interview. Never heard back. I feel that while the recruiter was good, management responsiveness at Metro can be quite poor. Wouldn't waste my time applying again.

Interview Questions
  • About values at Metro and how the role relates
