What insiders say about…
There is a great variety of projects and pieces of work that are extremely interesting and rewarding to be a part of. Every role will also have some day-to-day tasks that can be trivial (however no more than any other workplace).
Great company culture. Everyone is really friendly and the workplace is flexible and inviting. Teamwork is key and everyone is happy to help out
Phone Interview, face to face with your line manager and one other, a psychometrics test and drug test then a second interview with your line manager and their manager, then reference checks. Very thorough and professional process, can be a bit intimidating as a graduate.
Phone interview was mostly a recap of the resume, talking about experience, how you manage your time, responsibilities in your current role. In the first face to face interview they asked behavioural style questions "Tell me about a time when..." then expected an answer in the format of "situation, what you did, what was the result". This first face to face interview went for close to two hours. The second face to face was basically just a formality and a meet and greet with a more senior manager for them to vet you. This went for about twenty minutes to half an hour.
Come in showing exactly how prepared you are, have examples of work you've done (I displayed a video, ppt etc. all on an iPad so that I could show them examples of my work), do research the company and check out the people who are interviewing you on LinkedIn, the more you can show you've looked into the company, the position and your line manager the more serious and prepared you look.
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.
Bonuses awarded to high achievers at graduate level and pay is competitive
Rewarded by managers with small tokens of appreciation if you work hard
Managers make themselves approachable and make an effort to get the most out of employees.
Training could improve. There are a lot of processes that have a "sink or swim" attitude related to them. I think this is the area which needs the most focus within DuluxGroup.
My company has a clear structure of objectives and progression for those who exceed expectation and achieve results.
Dulux takes on people from many cultural backgrounds
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.
Clayton office space is great. Some other sites are a bit outdated.
They are getting better but I don't think many businesses are serious about this beyond what the wider public expect of them and the public has fairly low standards for reducing their carbon footprint in my opinion.Join us to bookmark!
