Application Process & Interviews at Australia Post

Please describe the interview process and assessments.
Before COVID, I had an initial application, online testing, a video interview, an assessment centre and then a final in-person interview. This was a challenging yet incredibly rewarding process to finally receive the call saying I had gotten the job.

Rigorous culture shone through.

The process was pretty simple and straightforward, it was just lengthy to find out if I had gotten a position post the assessment centre day. I had to submit my resume and some questions, I then had a phone interview and then attended the assessment centre day where I also had the face to face interview. Then a few weeks later got a call offering me a position.

Graduate hiring process was the best out of all the companies I applied for. Felt like the company celebrated diversity and unique individual qualities and it was less about the degree you had and more about the person you are.

What questions were you asked in your interviews?
As I had applied as a business generalist, I was asked about what area of the business I would want to enter. I was also asked about previous experiences with leadership, and previous experiences in challenging environments.

I had a phone interview and a face to face both around 15 minutes. The phone interview from memory was more around me and why I applied for the role, why I aligned to the company and their values and what my background was in. The face to face interview was a bit more focused on applicable skills to the job and talking about experience I had in different situations, why I wanted to be in a graduate program and how many others I was applying to from memory.

Lots of situational questions - 'name a time when' questions where you would explain how you went about a tough/new situation or how you handled certain people etc.

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Be yourself and try to be inclusive of others in group assessments.

Get a sense of the culture and decide if you are a good fit, and if so, sell it.

I would recommend researching the company and making sure you are across their values, things they have achieved in recent years or what they are working towards. Have some examples of past work/experience to draw on, understand why you want to work for them and be honest about what draws you to their program/company. Think of some questions they may ask you and how you would answer them, try and come up with some out of the box questions too.

STAR method - situation, task, action and result. Majority of questions are behavioural based, thus this structure ensures you answer clearly with all the necessary detail
