    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Railcorp (Sydney (Australia)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email straight after to take online numerical and personality tests. They were fairly easy and simple. Then got a phone interview. It was very candid but still has a professional feeling to it somehow. Then got the group interview panel. Had to present a social media business solution the same day to them. A week later they conducted a one-on-one interview and then two weeks later I was rejected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Railcorp in August 2011.

    Interview

    Stock standard application process. Next stage is SHL and psychometric testing. Assessment centre involved a simple written engineering aptitude test, writing a short engineering report and short talk to hr about why you want to work for Railcorp. No phone interviews. Whole thing took ages, from application to offer was almost 4 months.

    Interview Questions

    • Written test had a question about calculating how far down a slope a train would roll before stopping. As an electrical engineer, if I hadn't done HSC engineering studies before uni, I probably wouldn't have been able to answer it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Government job - transparency means salary non negotiable

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Railcorp in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very pleasant and professional, the interviewer was a manager I could see myself working with. I noticed that when I left the interview, people in the team were able to see me & several were looking on in interest. Which is understandable but I felt a bit uncomfortable by this. I do know that the culture at this large public service organisation has been very problematic in the past. There was a sense of office politics already in those curious looks.
