    I applied online. I interviewed at Rio Tinto in December 2016.

    Interview

    So strategic, two guys one who sits and listens doesnt say a word (the chief boss) and the one who asks all the questions (the bosses assistant). Rio is such a big corporation they are programmed to ask systematic questions. Learn the job outline and the details and compare it to your current skills. Write up key concepts that relate from what your currently doing to what you will do for rio.

    It was fairly quick as they wanted a starter straight away, there was some verbal agreements as well and I regret never getting them in writing.
