What questions were you asked in your interviews?
During the interview, I was asked questions about myself, the company and why I wanted a position on the Engineering Graduate Program.
Some technical questions which were designed to test my ability to think creatively under pressure. Questions about attitude to safety and to customer service, and questions about my knowledge of the industry and company.
Past history, experiences, technical question in regards to your knowledge learned through university, knowledge of the company, why you wanted to join the company, what you can bring etc.
Few technical questions, focussed on interpersonal skills and problem solving
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
My advice for candidates applying to this company is to be yourself and be prepared.
Get involved with the vacation program in third year and keep the contact details of your leader or someone you worked closely with - it is important to have someone within the company that the recruiters can talk to about you! Get to know the industry and keep in touch with developments i.e. by joining EESA and going to the talks. Do some extra-curricular activities through uni to develop soft skills.
Have a good understanding about the company and what works they are involved in. Importantly, understand yourself why you applied to join the company and how you value add.
Ensure you have examples of good teamwork and problem solving
