    Metallurgist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Newcrest Mining (Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea)) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Interview was conducted via telephone as there was some issues onsite at the time interview was to be conducted. The normal process is to have the potential candidate flown to site for interview and tour of his/her prospective working environment. This is a better practice than having to do telphone interviews.

    • I try to focus on the specific location (worksite) only and not bother about the other mines the company owns. This was what caught me out.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate anything, the company had everything covered for me.

    Human Capital Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Newcrest Mining (Melbourne) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very formal, uncomfortable and not interested in being in the room. The interview panel were not working well together in the room. I could feel the tension and hierarchy present in the room. Once seated in the interview room - i felt like getting up and leaving as it was clear they had already decided that I was not suitable. I felt they were just seeing me as another one of their colleagues suggested they see me for the role. It was unfortunate - but told me a lot about the culture, which was useful. A very uptight interview.
