    Consultant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    I was interviewed back when the recruiters and interviewers understood what made the company special. The current lot are box tickers.

    Anyway:

    1. screening interview with HR bod
    2. peer interview for culture fit (and to see if your CV is bulldust or not) with a billing consultant (most interesting)
    3. marketability interview with account manager
    4. all-of-the-above interview with regional director

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Melbourne (Australia)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Absolutely brilliant and highly organised.
    4 interviews took place.
    Was given as much information as possible regarding the next steps.
    Technical interview was advanced, filled with a multitude of different questions based on previous experience.
    Absolute pleasure.
    Great communication from the resourcing team, from the initial resource manager to the final documentation and administration handling.
    Probably the best interview process I've been involved in.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview was from a member of H.R..
      The second interview was a panel discussion of advanced technical question and related projects from my past experience.
      The third interview was around my aspirations, goals and future with SMS.
      The Fourth interview was based around further experience and the projects I'd be involved in.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology.

    Interview

    Telephone screening interview
    HR Interview
    Practice Manager Interview

    Was referred by friend. Was not provided with a job description at any point in the process.

    Interviewed by a practice manager in another state by Skype. Other participant did not reveal himself on video due to "technical issues".

    The feedback that I received did not reflect the interview I participated in and had the air of someone finding excuses to not hire rather than actual useful feedback.

    I raised a topic in interview on area that I had studied academically. Feedback post interview was that I lacked practical experience in the subject. Again I had not seen the JD so that this was now a hiring criteria was bizarre.

    Was told I did not have enough business development experience in last role. Disregarding the over half a billion dollars worth of business development that I had achieved in prior roles.

    At all stages prior to this interview I was told how SMS was trying to change and be more dynamic. The disconnect between the feedback and the prior interviews made it feel like some power game was being played out behind the scenes.

    Not a great experience and not encouraging.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Sydney (Australia)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    1 Phone Interview and three face to face interviews. After the initial phone interview, I was invited for the first face to face interview. It was with the Practice lead and I was asked technical questions. After that, I was invited for 2 more interviews with managers. The overall process was good and the recruiter kept me up to date throughout.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Applied via employee referral process. 4 conversational style interviews over about 6 weeks including HR, Capability Lead, Practise Manager, Regional Director. Process was a bit chaotic. Bait and switch - offered me a different role to that advertised and not negotiable on offer.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews and in the end they gave an offer 15% lower than what was originally discussed (before any interviews took place) and they advised that this was not negotiable. Quite the waste of time considering it was 3 rounds of interviews. Would recommend anyone interviewing with them to manage this tightly from the start else they'll end up trying to take advantage of you and possibly your situation. Very unprofessional to have an offer deviate 15% from what was initially discussed.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Sydney (Australia)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First the HR called in and had a nice phone interview. After a week's gap, another phone interview with their team manager. After another week's waiting one on one interview with the team manager. For all the phone interviews, the calls were not on time and had to wait at least 10-15 mins for the phone call. For face to face interview I had to wait around 30 mins outside the office. Not the very best management for interviewing. And am still waiting for the outcome.

    Consultant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Melbourne (Australia)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    -First Interview was a HR interview to check whether you are fit to the Company. It is not a difficult one, if you have the experiences that are required for the vacancy. HR will question on what you have done in the past, future carrier plans and why you are choosing SMS…

    -Second interview is with Practice Lead. Again it is not a very difficult one, if you have played the role in the past. It is mainly based on your resume, past project experiences and technologies.

    -Third interview is with a Delivery Manager. They are trying to identify your skills and capabilities. If your skills are demanding and what they are looking for, you have a high chance to get selected for the vacancy.

    Overall interviews are not difficult.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology.

    Interview

    Interviewer is a capability lead for one of the leading technology streams. She wanted a Skype Interview, but she doesn't want to show her face but requested me to turn on my video. It was like a police interrogation, people can see you but you can't see them. She didn't have respect for talent and all she sounded like all they care about is number of years of experience you carry. Essence of her interview felt like if it took 10 years for her to get to Senior Consultant no one should get a similar role in 5 years. There is no proper reason given for rejection.
