    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Sydney Water full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    9 Day fortnight
    Work/life balance
    Easy to take time off
    If you have a good manger they can mentor and develop you to where you want to be

    Cons

    If you are in team where you have bad manager it is hard to progress and grow.

    Any family or husband and wives working at the company need to be in completely different divisions to get rid of negative conflict of interest tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the staff that have the old/public sector mentality and be harsher on under-performers

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sydney Water (Parramatta (Australia)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    - CV/cover letter submission
    - Online video questions (very awkward)
    - Assessment centre; involving 2 group activities and 1 individual activity. Group activities included discussing how to respond to a mains break and designing a wastewater plant with the customer at the heart. Individual task was to present to two assessors how you would plan your work in the first 90 days at Sydney Water
    - Panel interview; there were two interviewers. One from HR and the other an accountant from within Sydney Water.
