    Interview

    I have a backgroynd in Energy sales and they wasted a great deal of my time. I applied for one position and went in for an interview, while waiting to hear back their hr team rang and advised me they would like me to interview for a different position, I came in again. I waited a few more days and was told to reapply for the original position I applied for and to come in to interview again. In total I interviewed four times and did not hear back about any of the positions

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Origin Energy in January 2018.

    Interview

    30min interview with an HR rep, direct manager and a potential colleague in the same role. Discussed working style, working environment, career history and plans, and answered a series of questions reflective of the role responsibilities.
    The interview went well and I was verbally encouraged to continue to pursue the role as they had more openings coming up, however in my follow up call with HR I was told that I did not have the experience they were looking for. I found out a short while later that they had promoted from within, which was the intention all along. It was disappointing to receive misleading information and have my time wasted.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Origin Energy.

    Interview

    Relatively informal. 2 person panel interview. 1 interview.
    Questions varied from personal, technical, leadership and even asking my opinion on matters. Numerous examples of my experience were discussed and probed.
    An interesting number of hypothetical questions were also thrown at me ('What Ifs' and 'How might you'). These were not tokenistic character questions; more like assessing my technical and problem solving aptitude.
    Interview went for approximately 2.5 hrs.

    Overall, I'd have to say it was one of the more in-depth and insightful interviews I've had. Felt more conversational in tone. I got to ask lots of questions and learn a lot.
