    Monash Connect Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Monash University (Melbourne (Australia)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Online application in the first instance, quick response by HR Manager to arrange an interview time and conduct the initial phone screen. Then group interview a few days later with relaxed, fun atmosphere. Impressive group of candidates and the afternoon passed by very quickly. Super quick follow up with HR partner to arrange panel interview. Efficient and professional.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Monash University (Melbourne (Australia)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First a phone interview then an invite to an assessment centre,

    Presentation on Monash (BS alert)

    Ice breaker 'getting to know you' activity (bog standard, meet the "Faaabulous" team leaders)

    Group activity to see how you work in a team (Plane crash in the jungle)

    Phone role play to test your phone and customer service skills (One call from irate student)

    Written case study and response to test your comprehension and written skills. (A reply to an email from a student)

    Get out!

    Staff seemed unorganised, aggressive and a bit up themselves.

    No feedback given, No call back for outcome.

    Very unprofessional, would have declined offer anyway.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Monash University (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    There is no really an interview process. Research assistants fill a form to indicate which subjects they would like to assist. The lecturer of the course hires accordingly. They may have a very short interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The level of understanding on the subject. How much time they may spend without effecting their research work.   Answer Question

    Communications Adviser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Monash University (Melbourne (Australia)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    3 person panel - 2 women, 1 man (Monash requires a minimum of 1 woman out of every 3 people on a panel). Interview was held on campus in a small meeting room. Water was provided. Interview was fairly relaxed with relatively few challenging questions. Not all panel members were actively asking questions or reacting to responses - I suspect that one person might have been an HR representative, with little connection to the role itself.
