    Scholarship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brisbane
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thiess (Brisbane) in September 2020.

    Interview

    The process was very streamlined, with minimal/no actual human contact until the final rounds of the application process. The personality quiz was very interesting, where they asked you to pick which statement most described you, and then repeated them in lots of different combinations. I wonder if they were trying to catch people out..?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Thiess.

    Interview

    the interview procedure operates in both Perth and Brisbane, in the beginning, we shared an online meeting with Brisbane head office. It is just like a briefing. about 20 applicants with civil background graduates in total from Perth and Brisbane but I think they only have one position. After the online meeting. we were called to have a group interview in another room one by one. a senior project manager and HR manager ask questions and make notes. outside the room, 2 HR staffs waiting with the rest of the applicants and talk about some casual topics. apparently. keywords is a crucial factor when you answer the questions.

    Communications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brisbane
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thiess (Brisbane) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was intensive, made it through each round until the final interview. As soon as I left the interview I did not think I had the position as the hiring manager was disinterested from the moment we sat down. He doodled on his paper the whole time. On the flip side the comms manager was very friendly and interested.

    Anyway, I recieved a reference check in the days coming and my referees confirmed they contacted them. So I though maybe I had done better than I thought. However I never heard from them again after this point and they failed to return my emails or calls about the status of the job, It was only one month later that the applicant portal finally showed that my application was unsuccessful. I never even got an automated email, nor a general email or a phone call. Nothing. It was disappointing they could not reach out and let me know I was unsuccessful or that the position was not going to be filled
