    Assistant Lecturer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Monash University (Melbourne (Australia)) in January 2008.

    Interview

    It was an informal discussion with the person who looked after all of the tutors at Monash. She was interested to learn why I wanted to be a tutor, what experience I had and those sorts of issues. Technical ability did not come into nor did understanding of economics. She was not even interested in one's ability to control a class room full of rowdy students.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell us about your previous experience developing communications plans?   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Monash University (Melbourne (Australia)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I was brought in as a casual research assistant at the Monash University Clayton Campus.

A discussion of field work experience in Victoria was completed, along with the necessary number of days required to be split between fieldwork and analysis in the lab. The supervisor was excellent in all respects.
