    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBN Co (Sydney) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Delayed the release of results 3 times, each time pushing it back for a week, totalling a delay of 3 weeks. Not the best considering graduates apply for many roles at a time, and some would have been waiting on NBN before accepting/declining other offers.
    Feedback given was not very informative (mostly compliments)
    Otherwise the interview process was standard, although the individual interviews only lasted around 20-30min after subtracting the presentation, which I felt was quite short. Standard behavioural, team work questions asked

    Graduate Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBN Co (Sydney) in September 2020.

    Interview

    HR was very unqualified. Delayed the announcement process, and did not even inform until I had to call HR and ask what is the result. Feedback given was just pure compliments, pretty much said you scored the highest in the group and individual interview but "we're sorry."
    There was so much anticipation built on because they said they have increased the number of graduates intake for 2021.
    The case study given required you to be fully prepared with a 10 min presentation. Almost like you were doing a University assignment again.
    Process: Submit your CV -> Online test -> Online Video Interview -> Assessment Centre Group & Individual Interview Combined

    After the 1st screening telephone interview there were 2 additional video interviews, one with the direct team and one with the managers. The process took roughly 4 weeks to complete all of them and get a response. The HR was very communicative throughout the process.

    Community Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Perth, Western Australia
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBN Co (Perth, Western Australia) in June 2020.

    Interview

    The most exhaustive I have experienced in my 25 year career.

    Had an initial informal approach, proactively encouraged to apply, then invited to and attended all (4) interviews and undertook an aptitude test. I was told I was the preferred candidate.

    After nearly 2 months filled with interviews I was told that someone internal had been appointed into the role.

    I’m left confused as to what really happened.

    I did get to meet several lovely people through the process, and it was a good experience all in all. Just a very disappointing outcome, and what ended up feeling like a waste of time.

    Campaign Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NBN Co (Sydney) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Participants were late and didn't ask any real in depth questions.
    Interview was totally disjointed and very unprofessional.
    Hiring manager mentioned that an internal person was temporarily seconded into the role who ended up with the position.
    I feel I was there only to make up the numbers as the Talent agent and HM demonstrated no real care.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NBN Co.

    Interview

    Screening interview, followed by interview with the hiring manager.
    Stock standard questions of tell me a time.....etc
    Post interview no follow up at all had to chase for the results. Then the reason given for not being offered the position was totally off base.
