    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.

    Lengthy four round interview process including psychometric testing.

    A lot of behavioural based questions were asked to determine cultural fit which is a priority at SEEK. Recommend bringing along examples of work if applicable to show evidence of skills and application.

    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.

    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

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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SEEK (Melbourne) in January 2007.

    Interview

    Seek employs people based on attitude more than anything else. You will impress them if you are young, confident, out going, smart, fashionable, smooth and relaxed. You want to make sure that you have read some web articles about the latest ideas and terminology in your area and can throw around terminology and concepts with confidence. Dont worry they are not going to drill down on anything because they don't know it themselves. They want the "in crowd", " the popular kids".

    The key is confidence, confidence, CONFIDENCE.

    Dont say anything negative or they will drill down, drill down, drill down and then your out.

    Interview

    The interview Process there is pretty simple the first interview was done by an Architect who works for seek. i was being interviewed for a position in seek learning, the interviewer was polite and nice during the interview,

    Interview Questions

    • i can tell that he was not experienced in interviewing people as his questions were pretty shallow and not organized. and i believe such confusion happened as their expectation was different from my experience as they seemed to be interested in a more technical role while my experience is more towards management.   Answer Question

    Personal Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auckland (New Zealand)

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SEEK (Auckland (New Zealand)).

    Interview

    I applied for the advertised role of P.A. to the G.M. of New Zealand on October 23rd, and was invited for a one-way video interview on October 31st, which I promptly completed.
    I was then invited for a face-to-face interview due to take place on November 11th.
    During this period, I lived and breathed Seek, and dedicated all of my free time preparing for this interview. I bought a new outfit, and arranged for the time off work.
    Sadly, 36 hours before I was due to be interviewed, the interview was cancelled as a successful candidate had already been chosen.
    Where I certainly do not expect to be offered all of the jobs I apply for, I would at least have appreciated the chance to have been interviewed, to put into practice the weeks of preparation I had effected.
    I feel that this would be fair and expected practice for a company so highly regarded in the realm of recruitment.
    A company should never underestimate how much time and energy prospective employees dedicate to the employment process.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SEEK (Melbourne) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Had one initial interview with HR, followed by two interviews with Customer Service (first one with two Customer Service Team Leaders, second one with Customer Service Manager and Customer Service Team Leader).

    Interviewers were all very friendly and conversational. First-round interview was probably more probing and intense than the final one. Expect several questions about different aspects of customer service.

    Each interview was scheduled very quickly - usually within a week - and this reflects well on their agile culture. Communication was also very consistent and transparent.

    However, SEEK are also keen to see what you are like as an individual - culture fit is important too.

    In the reception area, you notice lots of visitors coming and going and culture looks very friendly, social and fun.
