What insiders say about…
My role at the moment is very rewarding as I am free to do many tasks outside the base responsibility and develop/learn.
In the workplace, the culture at DuluxGroup is extremely involving and supportive. In practice, the hierarchy is very flat - graduates often work closely with senior managers on important projects. New and less experienced people are made to feel valued and part of the team. Outside of work, the culture is engaging. Colleagues will often catch up for meals or drinks to celebrate special events.
Phone interview, psychometric assessment, Face to face interview. There has also been introduced a more targeted recruitment process including a work sample exercise including a presentation.
Questions about my previous work experience? projects I worked on, significant value adding tasks I performed for the business. Questions about what I can bring to the business Questions about my approach to a tricky social situation
Be yourself, talk to your strengths, come prepared with good examples of past project work and social dilemmas you overcame.
Company is super flexible. No expectation to work overtime unless a task must be completed. Flexible to start late etc.
Decent starting pay for a grad, with opportunity to climb very high (however this will be slow for the first few years).
Depending on your role, you may be required to relocate for a temporary rotation (between 3 - 12 months). If so, the company will cover all of your relocation costs and your rent during this period.
All managers (even senior managers) are extremely accessible to all employees, including grads. There is little separation between employees at different stages, and you will work closely with very experienced people regularly. Communication is very open, and constructive feedback is given freely.
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.
There are a diverse range of roles within DuluxGroup, and everyone is given the chance to switch into something new, even if they don't have previous experience. To receive a promotion, you have to demonstrate that you are willing to take on challenges and make improvements in your role. If you are content with only completing routine work the way it's always been done, you won't get a promotion.
The company shows a very diverse recruiting strategy. With our new manufacturing facility we have all kinds of backgrounds and even embrace 'special' days in other cultures such as recently 'Diwali' Festival and 'Eid'.
The company advertises very broadly and focuses more on character traits/attitude and motivations rather than formal experiences/qualifications.
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.
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!
