Some online questions and testing, an assessment centre and a few interviews. Pretty standard for grad jobs. What do you know about APRA? Why do you want to work here? Tell us about a time when.... It was 2 years ago. I don't remember any others. Research everything on the website. Know about all the divisions and learn everything you can about what APRA does and how they do it (systems and processes etc).

There is a move towards having a paperless office, although that seems to be a cost cutting activity.
