    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation in August 2017.

    Interview

    Had a "Skype" interview using their own video sharing technology with two researchers at CSIRO. They were genuinely very nice and friendly people and they made me feel at ease with the process. I didn't manage to get through, but I sent an email asking for feedback and they replied with grace and kindness. I'm not part CSIRO but I'm left with a very good impression of the company.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation.

    Interview

    Entretien réalisé avec 3 encadrants de stage par skype car j'étais en France. L'entretien s'est déroulé tôt dans la matinée à cause du décalage horaire. Ils m'ont demandé de présenter mon parcours puis ils m'ont posé des questions sur l'entreprise, ce qu'elle faisait, ils m'ont également demander de classer les 3 offres de stage dans l'ordre qui me plaisait le plus. Et ils ont fini par me demander si j'avais des questions à leur poser.
