    Senior Infrastructure Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at NBN Co (Sydney) in August 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me and asked my consent to apply on my behalf. Then I received an email asking me to submit an online application. After several weeks, I received a call informing me about the first interview which was face-to-face.
    The first interview was very good. There were two gentlemen, a manager accompanied with a solution architect. I enjoyed chatting with both men. The manager was particularly a very positive person, one of those managers who makes you really enjoy working with him.
    After two weeks I received another call informing me about the second face-to-face interview. This time there were two managers. Unfortunately one of the two managers in the second interview was a classic case of managers who themselves need to be managed! Through her questions and the way she reacted to answers, I noticed that this is not the role I would like to move to. I gently moved in a direction that made me appear unfit to her expectations.
    As expected, two days later I received a call letting me know the application will not go any further.
    For me it was fine, because even from beginning I did not intend to accept their offer. My main purpose was to go through the interview process as a dress rehearsal for another bigger role that I had in mind. But for those who may wish to apply for NBN, the interview questions are very typical and easy. There would be almost no technical questions, only behavioral questions, that too very brief and superficial probes.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NBN Co in August 2018.

    Interview

    Telephone screen with HR and then 2 face-to-face interviews with dept managers. Interviews themselves weren’t overly difficult-asked behaviourally based questions. Time for the interviews to be arranged was very lengthy (two months from first contact) and managers did not get back to you in the timeframes they indicated. Main recruiting manager seemed flustered and it appeared that it was difficult for them to make decisions. I was told I was unsuccessful via email, after several days’ delay-unprofessional and disappointing to be told via email and not called esp. considering this was a senior mgt role.

    (Next steps would have been a final/4th round of interviews, background checks, psych testing and medical/drug screen. )

    Interview process (and especially the final contact via email) did not reflect well on the interviewers or company.

    NBN was also very sensitive to being considered gov’t-they described themselves as a commercial organisation that has gov’t funding. But processes and timeframes are slow and bureaucratic.
