What insiders say about…
My day to day role is a very active, I spend little time sitting at my desk. I support the manufacture process through a combination of laboratory work and communication with my other colleagues in other areas of
This organisation has an excellent culture for creating a good work life balance. Rarely am I expected to work overtime however there are times when overtime is necessary to complete the task. Dulux has a pioneering approach to safety and it is one of the highest priorities of every sub business within the group. Upper management put a huge effort into meeting the new graduates and spending time with current graduates through the graduate program.
The hiring process took longer than expected. I had a phone interview, after waiting I was then invited to a formal interview with the Senior Brand Manager and Marketing Manager. After the formal interview I was chosen for a second interview with the National Sales Manager and Senior Brand Manager. After the second interview I had to complete a Chandler Macleod assessment. After this time, it had been a few months and I was offered another position, I had to make clear to DuluxGroup that I needed to know if I had the position or not as this was a very long process. They then organized for me to have a final interview with the General Manager which followed with me immediately heading to take a drug test to speed up the process. I think if it wasn't for me mentioning my other job offer this could have dragged on even longer.
A very broad range of questions. Communication, stakeholder management, time management and project management questions. Also marketing related questions.
I would research online the most common questions that are likely to arise for your job title. I would take the time to understand the values and behaviours required for DuluxGroup and make sure you are a good fit. I would also come prepared with questions to ask the interviewer.
Company is very flexible with hours. Normally you would do standard 38hr week but when you choose to work longer or weekends for a particular project/activity you get flexibility on other days.
Currently I am on graduate salary. Due to this I feel I put in a lot more hours than what I am paid for however I do love my job and I know the opportunities that will arise.
Managers make themselves approachable and make an effort to get the most out of employees.
We can go to our Training Academy to learn about our products, sessions are held for our customers frequently and we are encouraged to attend as many as we like. There are many avenues for development, I am in the graduate program which runs for 3 years and gives you access to a big network of other graduates and senior area experts in the business who run days on project management, finance fundamentals, working in a different function, presentation skills etc. The business also has programs to develop managers and develop time management skills. It is also encouraged to bring up external training or seminar opportunities that you think relevant to your job, I have attended several retailing excellence mornings where speakers present on topics they have experience in.
Internal promotion is often a preference to fill positions but it is also highly competitive, you need to have excelled in your current role and be good at networking with the right people, have a good development plan and be planting the right seeds to be considered for your next step in Marketing. In other functions it might be different but there are always several internal applicants when marketing roles become available.
Everyone is accepted and given equal opportunity at DuluxGroup. Women are supported to return to work following family leave.
My employer expects each employee to participate in community projects and encourages involvement in extracurricular charities. They also run fundraisers for popular foundations such as Beyond Blue and Cancer Council.
Modern well designed spaces.
Considering we are a large manufacturer and produce / use chemicals that are harmful to the environment, I don't think our company puts enough emphasis on being green (or promoting it, anyway). I think this definitely needs improvement.Join us to bookmark!
