    Associate Adviser Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Perpetual (Melbourne (Australia)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the Talent Acquisition Team from Perpetual and invited to apply for this role. I was given a nice candidate package prior my 1st interview with the hiring manager, which was more like a conversation session, and had a very positive feedback from their HR after the 1st interview.

    I also proceeded through their reference and police check phase.

    The hiring manager mentioned about a second interview with the paraplanning manager as a knowledge guage for induction and training purposes, and i did my 2nd interview / chat with the paraplanning manager. She sounded very pleasant during the interview.

    According to the candidate guide, once the interview with the hiring manager is successful, and reference checks and security checks are successful, the company will proceed with a offer.

    After a 2-week long process, and chasing for an update for 2 days, I got a call from their HR telling me the company had decided to cancel the role completely.

    What an irresponsible company is this? I am totally disappointed and disgusted by their actions and lack of integrity, as well as corporate social responsibility.

    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Perpetual in July 2011.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview that caught me unprepared. The biggest mistake was in admitting that I had not read about the company and took a wild (incorrect) stab at what the company does. The interview went ahead although I should have probably said something along the line of "I would hate to waste any more of your time, but there really is no point to this anymore, is there?".
