    I applied online. I interviewed at Westpac Group.

    1 assessment centre, 1 individual presentation and then a 1on1 interview. The toughest part was the individual presentation as you only had 15 minutes to prepare, and the case study was quite thorough.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Westpac Group (Melbourne) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Online application was very easy to put in, one of the only ones without a cover letter or extended question response. Online testing was then required before video interview. AC invite included two senior interviews and a group activity. Relatively easy AC but competition very tough. Did not receive an offer. Can't really prepare for group assessment, standard fit interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Westpac Group (Sydney) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Somewhat balanced casual/formal, not very many technical questions but more interested in past life experiences. Interviewers were very nice and genuinely interested. The interview ran over time though interviewers were happy to continue talking. Unfortunately, the two interviewers had both left the company before I started the role. Overall relatively onerous (several stages and types of tests) but a good overall experience for those wanting a job at Westpac.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work at Westpac?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No real ability to negotiate as I was an intern. If I had another offer, potentially might have had some limited ability to ask for increased pay.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Westpac Group (Sydney) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very comfortable recruitment process. First step is online application followed by an immediate invitation to do online psychometric tests. Following that there is an online video with fairly straightforward behavioural interviews, however there is one technical question regarding the finance industry. Everyone at the assessment centre goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. There is a group activity, one-on-one interview and an individual written/oral assessment. Overall, you get a great sense of what it would be like working for Westpac.
