    Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lendlease (Melbourne) in June 2017.

    Interview

    - Had a video call scheduled with the Hiring Manager and Manager of Engineering based in Sydney
    - I had another offer on the table and I asked if it was possible to pull the interview date
    - The Manager of Engineering agreed to a phone call and told me "..We have shortlisted you and another candidate basically. The other candidate is an internal one, but you are more qualified and bring the experience we need". Best part, he also said "..I won't leave you hanging and I will have an answer to you within a week - 10 days"
    - Well surprise surprise, he hasn't picked my phone call since then and now I have just given up. When I call the HR rep, he said now the internal candidate is at the forefront of the position as he is internal and "needs" to be given priority.

    What an amazing level of politics in this AUD 15 Billion organization where internal candidates are given preference despite not meeting the skillset and experience requirement.

    - Worst of all, not even 1 person has had the decency to call me up and tell me the process is over. They have absolutely ZERO empathy for applicants.
