    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEEK.

    Interview

    First I had a Skype interview with an HR representative. This was informal and most of the questions were getting to know you' questions. The second interview was also on Skype with the Director. This consisted of more questions about past experience and desired salary. Both interviewers were relaxed and it was very conversational.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SEEK (Melbourne).

    Lengthy four round interview process including psychometric testing.

    Interview

    Lengthy - a phone interview, group interview, individual interview, online psychometric testing, and one final in-person interview. It's very important to review SEEK's values and go through the website in detail to think about how your personality and experiences best align.

    Graduate Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEEK (Melbourne) in September 2016.

    Interview

    1. Application
    They asked a bunch of questions to get an idea of who you are and what your values are. Right off the bat the focus is more on the person than the qualifications, which makes sense for an entry level role. Of course a resume and the usual stuff is submitted too.

    2. Coding test
    I'd say average difficulty, they give you plenty of time and I got my percentage results back automatically which was very much appreciated. Platform for me was Codility, plenty of languages to choose from.

    3. Group Session
    Really cool. A bunch of applicants come in on-site and pair up on a task. For us it was making a game, with focus being on TDD and general practice, as well as ability to work together. Much more specialised than most group interviews for grads, and I was really impressed by this stage.

    4. Interview
    I feel this was the most extensive part for me. It was quite easygoing and pleasant, but felt like a lot more questions than usual. Some questions were particularly tailored to my background, which I like as some companies leave resume/academic history assessment till last and it's nice to be reassured that the interviewers are familiar with your background. 2 interviewers.

    5. Psychometric Testing
    Nothing unusual. Personality as well as cognitive ability. Somewhat notable how late in the process this is, I'd assume that means it's not really used as a filter, but that's just my guess.

    Overall, this was probably my most positive grad interview experience. I found the speed of it all to be reasonable and conversations with HR to be more straightforward than most companies. Seek was also very accommodating for interstate applicants

    Software Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SEEK (Melbourne) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process went for about 2 months.
    1. Applied online (through Seek of course)
    2. A couple of days later got an invite to do a coding test (codility)
    3. 2 weeks later had a phone interview and a psychometric test
    4. 3 weeks later had a panel interview (with HR, a developer and Product Manager). The interview was not difficult, there were a lot more behavioural and personality type questions and only a couple of technical questions around my experience. The interviewers were super friendly, which helped with the nerves.
    5. A couple of days later I was told that I got through to the next stage. However, weeks go by (I was getting updates from HR each week that they’re still working on roles availability) and about 3 weeks later I was told that there wasn’t an immediate role suitable for my skill set (so I was put in the “talent pool”)
    6. Another 3 weeks later I got a call to come in to “meet the team”, which was basically a Peer Interview. It was really just a chat with your potential team about the role and them understanding your technical background and experience.

    Overall, the interviews and HR people themselves were great, the people there were really friendly and you can feel the great culture within the organisation. However, due to the whole interview process taking so long, and being told “you’re through to next stage” then to know 6 weeks later that you’re a great fit to the organisation but your skill set doesn’t match with any roles was very disappointing.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SEEK (Melbourne).

    Interview

    I was applying for a contract role that had remained unfilled for a number of months. I was contacted by agency about the opportunity. Following an initial phone screen, I completed a first round interview with the HR Manager. This was then followed by 2nd stage interview with the HR Director and Senior Software Development Manager. These interviews focused on a combination of my technical experience as well as cultural compatibility.
