Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Rio Tinto in January 2019.

Interview

Applied back in September to the general graduate pool, and then did a cognitive/personality test a few days after I applied. I got an email stating that I should hear from them with a certain day period; however when I was notified to go on to the next step it was WAY over that time limit. Next was a prerecorded interview. I got asked 5 different questions regarding group work, safety, and a time where I lead a group of people. A few weeks later, I got another interview to do a behavioral test. It gave you three scenarios and you needed to put them in order, from highest priority to lowest priority. A few more weeks pass by (close to a month) and I schedule a live video interview with a recruiter. The interview itself was with 6 different people, but mainly one person did the talking. Everything takes awhile, but the recruiters are very kind. They will answer any questions you may have without hesitation.

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Rio Tinto in December 2017.

    Interview

    Very slow process. I had applied online in September. I received an email from HR to schedule a phone interview in November. Phone interview with 2 people in December. They gave me a background of the position and the company. And asked some behavioral and technical questions. They told me that I will hear back in January. After no response until January 2nd week, I emailed HR who replied that they had selected another candidate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rio Tinto (Brisbane) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview for Graduate Process Engineer. It included both behavioural and technical questions as it was with a Technical Manager and an HR. They asked quite a bit about my work experience, final project, team work questions but also what sports and community work I did while being in Uni and provide examples. It was quite a difficult interview as community work questions are usually not asked in the interview but at the same time a really good experience.
