    I have been working at Canstar full-time

    Pros

    It’s very social, some incredible managers (in the wider marketing team, not sure about other departments), and if you have a solid manager like I had you will have clear career progression. You can also choose the training path you want to go down with budget allocated for conferences and training. Would recommend Canstar as a great place to work!

    Cons

    Very ROI focused, which can sometimes impact innovation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Canstar (Brisbane) in June 2011.

    Interview

    A complete joke of a recruitment process. What they said in the interview was complete rubbish compared to what the job actually involves. Likewise the description of the culture could not be further from the truth. The untouched and dirty 1980s building and decor much better defines the can't do culture. It was a highly disorganised process and I think most candidates pulled out for obvious reasons. Unfortunately I was probably the only person left and I should have followed my gut instincts as no job would have been better than my time at Canstar.

    Interview Questions

    • NONE.
      If you want the job you will get the job at Canstar. They do most of the talking anyway.
      They will get whoever they can as it's not a place many people would actually choose to work.   Answer Question
