    Pedestrian Wayfinding Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney (Australia)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    So casual it was unprofessional- walked through staff area (everyone check me out) supervisor then talked at length about 'his' design vision & 'his' role & his....., then 10 minutes into the interview a staff member 'popped' head into interview room to say to they were going to lunch to which 1 interviewer replied she'd only be another 5 minutes. Questions not strongly related to selection criteria.

    Linux Systems Administrator (Suse, Java, Tomcat, Ansible) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney (Australia)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was arranged by agency (robertwalters.com.au) and I was supplied with 90% irrelevant and outdated job description and wrong address. Interview was conducted by Nikhil Sehgal and two other people in a technical manner. However interviewers failed to articulate their concerns or confirm their assumptions with me. Over the week after the interview I was advised that they've decided to give job to another candidate because in their opinion I would be "bored" (ignoring the fact that I've explicitly expressed my interest to the role). I wish they wouldn't care that much about me and their response makes me wonder if they are capable of honest communication.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Initial application followed by two rounds of online testing through Saville Consulting (found these easier than almost every other online test I've done for a job) which was numerical, reading and abstract based. Then multi mini interviews basically speed dating over 4 stations with one question at each station. Then an assessment centre with a one on one role play with an actor and a group task. Finally reference and pre employment checks.

    Competency Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Online application included resume, plus 2 page letter addressing 2 key criteria: why are you suited to this job; what learning framework have you implemented.

    Interview conducted with 2 HR reps and a manager from the division. Hiring manager not present.

    Lead interviewer continually interrupted me while I was answering questions.

    Interview questions were not related to job functions at all. Questions were about behaviour. Questions did throw me off, as they were so far removed from job functionality.

    Interviewers need to get better understanding of purpose and format of “behavioural” interview techniques.
