    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I went through M and T for a contract role. Interview was fair, as for hiring a body shop resource if you have the right skills then they pretty much put you forward for the role.

    Got converted to a perm afterwards and had a few meetings with some managers but having already worked as a contractor this made the process quite a breeze.

    In my opinion it is easier to go down this path as I have heard of the very gruelling formal interview process for a perm role

    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.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SMS Management & Technology in February 2010.

    Interview

    I applied directly and called the HR contact person. She had a short chat on the phone, the asked me to come see her in person for about an hour next day. After the meeting, she informed me that I was up for 2nd level interview with a delivery manager, took it within 3 days. Same day, HR informed me that I was up for 3rd and 4th level interview and scheduled it in 4 days time, both on the same day. Made me an offer within 2 hours of leaving the office. Told me a start date.
    Very professional and impressive process.
    With HR - 1st interview was for cultural fit.
    With Delivery manager - 2nd interview was about my work experience.
    With Account Manager - 3rd interview was about my work experience.
    With Regional Director - 4th interview was very general, nothing about the CV - what I'm looking for in my new job, goals. Any question about SMS? What to expect?
