    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Australia and New Zealand Banking in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First there was a presentation by the HR Manager, then the representatives from each department (IIB and Retail Wealth Management) spoke about the job profiles. Then we had an aptitude test - 30 Qs 30 minutes. There was also a listening test - 3 parts
    a) Long conversation - 5 Q's
    b) 5 short conversations - 1 Q each = 5 Qs
    c) Long conversation again - 5 Q's
    (This is done to test whether you are comfortable with the foreign accent or not)

    As the aptitude test was very easy, the cut off was high (i suppose) and appx 35 out of 200-250 were short listed.

    We has
    a) Extempore speech
    b) Verbal communication (READING OUT LOUD a paragraph of a news article) + another extempore (for those who cleared round a. and those who didn't clear - got an interview too for a different department)
    c) Email writing (client grievance)
    d) HR interview

    The managers (interviewers) are really nice!!

    Interview Questions

      TIPS -
      Read about the company. They expect you to know SOMETHING about them and not be completely clueless.

      Extempore - Speak clearly and confidently, put your points across properly!

    SummerRisk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Australia and New Zealand Banking in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the website, answered all the general questions (e.g. why do you want to work in the area nominated, I chose Risk) and uploaded CV, passport photos, academic transcripts etc. The most annoying part is that there is the online assessments, where I was shown a series of scenario animations to answer questions. There was a problem with the website, and I was forced to redo all the questions again. The animations and questions themselves were poorly designed, the fonts were uncomfortably small. The experience was very uncomfortable. I was then rejected on the online assessment alone. And since I got the email of rejection minutes after I completed the online psych test, I don't believe my files were read by anyone. There weren't ant feedbacks. While I understand ANZ and similar organisations receive many applications, the overall experience was cold and I felt like I was dealing with machines rather than humans throughout the entire process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Australia and New Zealand Banking in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    There are two stages of the interview (if the job are hire directly via ANZ and not via external agency). First round are quite straight forward, more of knowing about you, your attitude, motivations, whether you are team player, etc.
    Behavior questions are based on the job description criteria - is good to prepare yourself some samples from your past experiences and use them to applies for various questions which could be raised.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Australia and New Zealand Banking in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Largely a deceptive view of the position, actual job was very different from the job described during the interview process. Despite assurances along the way the job never evolved into the job that was interviewed for. This seemed to have been a trick to get you into the position more than anything else.
