    Graduate Civil Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The process spanned over 2 months including a phone interview, personality and aptitude tests, group interview and drug/criminal record check. Whilst all these were fairly easy, the strongest weighting part of this process was the group interview. It is down to luck of the draw with who you are grouped with. It was an awkward process and they also had you write a short essay. They seem to be biased and favor females but this may be due to some quota they need to fill. All the female applicants I know got a job offer.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Initial online psychometric test (language) followed by a secondary group of three psychometric tests (numerical, analytical, ???). Then a multi mini interview (four questions with five minutes to answer each). Was expected to use the S.T.A.R. method to answer each of the questions. Feedback after unsuccessful application I was told that two of the four answers were not formulated into STAR format well enough. Other two were answered really well.
