    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.

    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,

    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.
