    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SuperPartners (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for an administrative job at SuperPartners online years back . I was called by their HR department for an interview later. I was invited to go to their office in the Melbourne CBD for a face to face interview. The whole process was pretty standard. There was a group interview panel consisting 3 people. One of them was from The HR department and two others were from the business department.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at SuperPartners (Melbourne (Australia)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was referred to SP by a supplier to Superpartners who was impressed by how they did business. After a good telephone interview with a recruitment consultant I was booked in for an interview with my now manager. Interview went for roughly an hour. I was contacted the next day and was asked for 2 referees. Two days after that I was called and told that I had been successful. Over all a good, quick and easy process.

    Interview Questions

    • The behavioural questions are tough, so have examples of your experience ready. They use Situation, Action and Outcome, other companies use STAR. They are pretty much the same.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    We had a simple discussion about salary. In saying that the expectation was set by the Recruitment Consultant during my first phone interview so there were no surprises. I have had pay rises since joining.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SuperPartners in September 2013.

    Interview

    I found out about the role from a friend who worked at Superpartners. I let her know I would be interested and soon after I received a call from someone in recruitment for an initial discussion about the role and the company. They painted a clear and fair picture of what the role was and what Superpartners was like to work for to make sure the role was right for me but also that I was right for the role.
    I then came in and met with the National Manager of the area for a behavioural interview. The interview gave me a feel for what he was like as a manager and also what the team would be like. He told me the good, the bad and the ugly of the role.
    I then came back in for another interview with some of the senior members of the team - this was not a behavioural interview, more of an assessment of my motivation for the role. The team were fantastic, very engaging and genuinely wanted to find out more about me.
    They then contacted my references, with my permission and made me an offer.
    A background check was also completed.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions, most were behavioural and the others were technical or about my motivation.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SuperPartners (Melbourne (Australia)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for a different role (Marketing Analyst) and got rejected via email but my CV was transferred by the recruiter to another recruiter as they thought I would be good for a different role (that's nice!).
    Got a call from the recruiter who presented to me the role, and we met the next day for a first interview. The discussion was very pleasant and constructive, since I had been in more senior role in the past they really wanted to manage my expectations and ensure I was fine not being in a managing role. At the end they told me that the next step would be for me to meet with 2 team members I would have to work with.
    I did the second interview with them within a couple days. The second interview was more focused on my adaptability and how I manage difficulties/issues. Again, the two ladies I met were very engaging and nice. I got a call back the day after and got offered the role.

    • Having worked in environments with very advanced/state of the art systems/softwares, how would I be as efficient using their own system (which they said was really not very user friendly and advanced).   Answer Question
