    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Boral (Melbourne) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Fairly typical 2 stage interview, plus Psychometric testing and drug test.
    First one mostly technical.. whilst the second was with the boss to determine suitability.
    Irrespective of the role, Boral conducts interviews exactly the same for everyone.
    Their procedures and policies are quite strict, so don't expect to negotiate anything.
    HR admitted that the psychometric testing and drug test are actually ignored ... but have to be done due to head office policies.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Boral (Sydney).

    Standard series of interviews with manager and team members. In general the process was ok. Perhaps it could be more helpful if it was more of a two way exchange of information. Interviews was more one sided.

    Dispatch Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newcastle
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boral (Newcastle) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The job was advertised on the internet, I submitted a CV and covering letter and got a call asking me to come for an interview a few days later. The interview was quite low-key and relaxed with 2 people asking questions based on the CV and their required competencies. The interviewers were both really enthusiastic about the company, which is a good sign. I have not been accepted or declined for the role yet but it was a pleasant experience as interviews go.
