I interviewed at NSW Government

Interview

I had to answer 2 questions on an application form and then a group interview because of COVID restrictions via zoom because of COVID restrictions. I didn't get the internship but they were generous enough to send an email containing feedback on how I went in the interview and what I can do next time to improve.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at NSW Government (Sydney) in Mar 2021

Interview

The hiring process began really well - it was all fast and professional before fizzing out toward the end. A day after the job post closing, I was invited to meet at a face-to-face interview at one of their assessment centres run by Hays. Interview was conducted in a rotating manner - with each candidate given 2 minutes to answer specific questions. The interview process was pretty difficult and felt more like I was 'speed dating' in a professional setting. Everything was rushed and there wasn't really an opportunity (from the applicant side) to introduce yourself or get to learn more about the job. About a week later, you're invited to the next stage which comprises of a personality, verbal, and numeracy test run by SHL. Despite being ridiculously easy, it may seem pretty invasive and inaccessible for other applicants - the resolution and diagrams are from the 70s! Again, this stage was rushed - except on this occasion you're increasingly becoming annoyed. A couple of weeks radio silence and nothing. There's been no feedback or communication on what the next stage will be. If there is one, it'll likely need to be done at short notice. You'll be expected to drop everything and jump through yet another hoop - only to experience another month or so of radio questions. If you really want to work for this agency, be prepared for long periods of radio silence, followed by sudden sense of urgency, followed by more radio silence. You should expect to have your other commitments interrupted at short notice by so many pointless tasks. Yes, everything was professional and pleasant to begin with. But this was quickly eroded during the mid and final stages of the hiring process. In the end, I took an offer from a different company where their processes were not only simpler but pleasant.
