Reviews by Westpac graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.1GradAustralia surveyed 58 graduates working at Westpac. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 58 responses.
- Diverse experiences
- The opportunities for career advancement, high performance culture
- Experience & exposure to different areas
- Great opportunities for networking Flexible work hours Is customer focus and does live by its values
- Very flexible working arrangements, good culture
- level of administrative processes
- The structure of the graduate program, requires a little more clarity.
- A lot of technology work is outsourced.
- Very few international opportunities. Time it takes to get things done, bureaucracy.
- Guidance seems to depend more on the team you're in and the people around you than HR. The graduate program seems to be heavily dependent on the stream managers - with little involvement from the wider graduate HR group.
What insiders say about…
My day to day responsibilities vary with each rotation through the program. I have been front of house in a branch, managing customers in Premium banking, assisting business development managers in the back office and many other diverse roles. no two days are the same.
Great culture in head office, social inclusion was very good. Branch network is a bit more fragmented however there is a strong family feel within my branch.
An online application, a culture test, a logic test, a video interview and then the assessment center. So 4 online tests and one in person.
Why Westpac? Why banking? Team scenarios. Strengths and weaknesses. Scenario based.
I think the interviews are all about composure. Remain calm, think straight and calmly about how your experiences can add value and yet consider broader perspectives. Consider other applicants as people to build on and work with instead of as a threat
In my current role, I leave by 5pm if it is middle of the month. When month end/ project/ restructure hits, around 7pm - 8.30pm.
Graduate program participants are flown to Sydney a few times a year. Reimbursement for expenses is work interstate.
Managers make great mentors. Mine in particular have really taken an interest in my career goals and have given me a lot of guidance
Almost all informal training which comes about because of me asking colleagues about how to do things - can be frustrating as people are not always available to help you.
A little unsure as I am still a grad but you have multiple opportunities to build your skillset and get placements in ever-changing roles. you can then roll off into a good role and progress from there
Westpac is very supportive of diversity
Westpac is one of the world�s most sustainable banks.
Building is quite nice, located quite close to Wynyard station and both major buildings has a great view. The dress code is not super formal (no tie, unless if you have a client meeting) but depends a bit on your team.
State of the art building. Moving towards a paperless environment.Join us to bookmark!
