I have been working at Australian Government full-time
Good benefits, people generally nice
Some managers could be horrible
Advice to Management
People are promoted based on their ability to achieve results so some managers are horrible people managers.
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Australian Government in January 2014.
Standard interview process - phone interview then assessment centre which included both a panel interview, a one to one and several group assessments where the aim was fairly obvious. I.e. show that you can listen and respect colleagues and offer a thoughtful opinion when appropriate. Don't interrupt, that's probably the most important element.
