Application Process & Interviews at TasNetworks

Please describe the interview process and assessments.

My personal experience was different from most, as I worked on my honours project with the company and then landed a graduate role through that after work experience. The current hiring process seems full on and I feel that it will be tailored every year to adjust the process to target the type of graduates that they are looking for. However, I would say not to judge the company on their hiring process, although this part is full on, the company is a relaxed and motivating environment to work in.

I had a very friendly interview with two senior engineers.
Graduate, Hobart
Interview was undertaken by a panel of three individuals. Two technical, one non-technical. Technical questions pertained to understanding of general asset management principals. Non-technical questions were pretty generic, probably asked by HR interviewers in most companies.

What questions were you asked in your interviews?

To land the substations engineer role from the graduate role, some of the questions were: - talk about a safety incident you have witnessed; - talk about a time you have worked in a group situation; - talk about a time when you had to lead; - technical question associated with the role: how would you manage TasNetworks assets in the regulatory world that we are in? To be honest, I cannot remember the rest.

Mainly behavioral questions with a couple of technical questions.

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?

Prepare, prepare, prepare. It is easy to tell apart the candidates that have prepared and those that haven't. Be innovative with any presentations you are assigned - think outside the box. Also be genuine - the process is designed to see if you fit in with the culture of the company and vice versa - if its not a good fit, you are unlikely to be happy coming to work each day.

Be passionate, show that you want to work for the company. Fundamental technical knowledge is key.

I would strongly recommend any candidate to strive to improve both their interpersonal and technical skills.
