    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thiess (Brisbane) in September 2013.

    Interview

    1x interview with an HR rep and a Project Manager - Very informal discussion about my personality and the requirements of the role. It focused mostly on my personality and experience at Uni.
