    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bupa (Melbourne) in July 2014.


    A two interview process. Relaxed and friendly. Highly concentrated on past experience and what that will bring to the role; perhaps as against opportunities to express new ideas. Allowed time to be asked questions of. Though probably did not offer enough about the role on offer to properly provide a basis for your own questions. All in all, it was a positive experience.
