    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Queensland Health (Brisbane, ND (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Great, it was fast but effective. The panel knew their stuff. They had all worked in the role and that helped me understand what they were looking for. There was a HR person at the interview who didn't know very much about the technical side of the role

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Queensland Health (Brisbane) in February 2019.

    Interview

    This role, whilst within a media and communications team required someone who could deliver comms & events.

    First up I was asked to complete a 30 min practical exercise (was advised of interview structure via email a few days prior) whereby I had to write my marketing strategy for a 2 hour event scheduled for next month.

    Plus two experience based questions:

    1. discuss a challenging event and how you dealt with it and how you managed your time during this process

    2. show evidence that you can develop positive stakeholder relationships & explain how you’ve dealt w. difficult stakeholders

    I then met with panel to hear overview of role, discuss my answers & ask any questions.

    Entire process took just over an hour.

    The panel were very friendly and despite initially feeling like a high school exam scenario it was a really great experience.

    No word on the outcome yet...fingers crossed!

    Interview Questions

    • I asked “what qualities someone in this role would need to excel?”   Answer Question
    • I also asked, “what was the biggest challenge facing the team?”   Answer Question

    Training Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brisbane
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Queensland Health (Brisbane) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Usual QH delays, mistakes & inefficiency in getting the interview appointment. Went to interview, then put in small messy room to answer, like a robot, the autocratic 5 question test within 10 minutes before the F2F interview. Of course, without any warning or even a comment beforehand. Then F2F with the panel who immediately went into asking the questions & answer process. This was where the experience disappointingly plummeted because there was no introductory overview of the job role so, me as the interviewee, could focus and have insight into the role before verbally answering the questions. How dare I expect such consideration!

    It simply demonstrated the truth of the QH closed & self-centred minded thinking that I've continually experienced on many occasions and which is akin to the dictatorial attiude of times gone by that is unfortunately embedded into the QH culture.
