Interview

Multiple mini sections: application, online testing, video interview... Alright process but is just lengthy, the online testing is of a few small tests about abstract listening and numeric calculations. I am still yet to hear back about the next process.

Was interviewed by a panel of three people who I wouldn't even have been working with in the job. Two of them said nothing the whole time. The other person was a nice man but knew very little about the team or job I would be doing.

Interview

Like most government organisations, Transport does conduct behavioural interviews. The expected mode of answering is via the STAR method. I was also asked questions with demonstrated work experience/knowledge. The interview experience was really good. The Talent consultant coordinated everything really smoothly. The panel was respectful and actively listening to everything I was saying.

Interview Questions
  • Question regarding effective time prioritisation (May differ from interview to interview)

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Transport for NSW (Sydney) in May 2021

Interview

First Received a call asking if I am interested. Second Interview was scheduled. The interview was with my Hiring manager, His manager and HR. The HR asked me to prepare for STAR type answers but as soon as the interview began the questions asked were all very very technical and answering with STAR method instantly is very difficult. The interview was scheduled for 1 hour and it went for 55 mins and only last 5 mins left for discussions. There were several questions asked and all were relevant. I only answered 2-3 questions using STAR method rest i answered in my own style. I guess it all depends on your hiring manager if he thinks you are suitable for the role then no matter if you answer in your own style you will get a positive response. All 3 interviewees ask me questions one after another and all were technical asking me to describe how exactly i did a particular thing. I was given an opportunity to describe what i do, basically they were after what $ of projects you handle , How diverse is your team, who are the key stakeholders & how you communicate. If you have received a call for interview then don't take it lightly there's a high chance of being selected. I was lucky that I got selected but I was offered a lower salary (Basically every grade has a range) I was offered a lower range at first, I went back to HR and asked them if they can increase it to max range, i was very lucky that my manager accepted giving me a higher $ (this was when i got the news that i am selected, before doing the medical and police check) Process is really slow YOU need to follow up with the HR person dealing with ur case but its worth it bro. As I went back on my salary package it took some time but over all from interview to Offer letter it took 3-4 weeks max Good luck bro

Interview Questions

The interview panel all seemed like they had somewhere else to be. Were reading questions off a page. I don’t know that any of them actually knew the requirements of the role.
