Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Rio Tinto

Interview

Everyone should feel involved, included and work in an environment where issues that arise are resolved as early as possible. Leaders and members show courage in addressing issues without unnecessary escalation. Formalization of grievances should be the exception. We all want to work in roles that we are properly trained and prepared for, while operating assets that are healthy and stable.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Rio Tinto (Brisbane) in Aug 2021

Interview

First stage was online psychometric testing, which was of an interesting and unique style. I found it challenging and only managed to complete about 75% of it. Then I was contacted for an interview about a month later. The interview itself was casual and relaxed, with just one interviewer.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rio Tinto (Perth, Western Australia, Western Australia) in Jun 2021

Interview

A very lengthy process. The whole process went for about an hour to a quarter past, with the presence of a senior engineer, a superintendent and myself through Microsoft Team. Due to the poor microphone and speaker they had on site, it was very challenging for the interview to take place.

Interview Questions
  • There were about 15 questions in total. First began with the introduction and background about this position. And then follow by behaviour, technical and safety questions

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Rio Tinto (Singapore) in May 2021

Interview

1. Online application 2. Online test (a few types of tests (e.g. logical, numerical) that came in 1 seating and sequence of these types of questions jumbled up. It was interesting, never done one like that previously) 3. HR phone interview, quick call that covered typical questions to judge your interest in the company and program 4. 1st round interview with relevant team 5. 2nd round interview with more senior team members The HR was very quick in moving me through from the HR phone interview and had great communication. HR did not provide any clarity in how many more rounds there where in the process but I assume I got to the final stage (any more interview rounds would be excessive) Enjoyed the interview process, but got ghosted after I received a rejection, and absolutely no feedback whatsoever even when I followed up. You would think they would at the very least just make something up after having taken so much of your time.
