    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at NBN Co (Melbourne (Australia)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The interview part of the recruitment process was normal: HR screening, direct manager interview, GM interview. I was then told I got offered the role, but they were working through head count (I thought head count approval happens pre interview and recruitment). I was led on for five weeks, where I had to continuously follow up with my appointed HR person every week. I was told that everything would be fine, they just needed approval on headcount. After four weeks, I was told the PERM position had gone to a 3 month contract in the view to then move to PERM. I explained in this current environment that I would be silly to give up my existing permanent job for a small contract (and really they hadn’t given me much faith in their word). Long story short, after five weeks I got a 4 minute call telling me they were no longer recruiting for a job and that the hiring manager would call me to explain. Six weeks later since interviewing and I’m still waiting for that call...
    Extremely extremely disappointing process, and if this is any indication of the business, I feel like I may have dodged a bullet. Shocking experience - the worst interview experience I’ve had in my career. I do hope NBN reviews this and takes immediate action for future recruitment.
