    Lawyer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Australia and New Zealand Banking.

    Interview Details

    Applied online - pretty standard.

    First interview was with an HR person - again fairly standard.

    Next interview was with the hiring manager. Reasonably straightforward behavioural questions.

    After that, radio silence. In the interview I was told a decision would be made within a week. So I called the HR contact after a week and left a message, no response. I tried again a few days later and was told the hiring manager had gone on leave without having made a decision. I tried again several times until more than a month after the interview, they said I'd been unsuccessful. I really think that if I hadn't persevered, they simply wouldn't have bothered with the basic courtesy of letting me know.

    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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
    • (It is one of the most calm and stress-less interview i have had)

      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 dayinterviewed 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.
