Please describe the interview process and assessments.
The process was: - Resume, Cover Letter and Online Form submission - Phone Interview - Personality Assessment / Grammar and Numeracy Testing - Assessment Centre
Psych test then phone interview then assessment centre and final interview.
I entered through the graduate program. Phone interview, online tests, assessment centre (group activities, solo presentation), and final interview.
Full day workshop including impromptu speeches, presentations, interview and teamwork sessions.
When I was hired, there was a phone interview, then psychometric tests, and finally a whole day graduate assessment centre. We had to do group projects, writing projects, speaking projects etc.
For the grad intake there was 4 stages. Submission, Online assessment, Phone interview, Group interview.
The process is quite standard depending on the role. For graduate programs, you can expect interviews, online assessments, and assessment centres.

Be yourself, not what you think the company wants you to be. Everyone has different needs, and if the role does not match your needs, then you will not be happy and enjoy yourself. In other words, play to your strengths!
Research. The company breadth is huge and there a lot of different parts of the business. Have an idea what you want to do.
