    Systems Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Victorian Government (Melbourne) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Standard experience based interview, with a panel of two asking interview questions. A good overview was provided on the role, the organisation structure and the process of the interview itself. Enough time was given for the candidate to ask questions of the panel, and in fact a potentially longer period of time was spent on this part of the process than the questioning. this was a positive experience as it certainly enabled the candidate to gain a solid understanding of the role and the expectations.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Victorian Government in December 2016.

    Interview

    The selection process was very fast and I received a call to interview within a couple of days. The interview took 30 minutes, involved set questions based on the selection criteria, and allowed time for interviewee questions. They called my referees as part of the decision-making process prior to selecting a preferred applicant, which was unexpected.
