    The assessment centre was a one-day process which was very intensive. The group activity was quite demanding because it consisted of many different components. The company tour was amazing because of the high-tech implemented on the entire building.

    Was well structured. All times and dates were arranged in advanced, so there was no surprises or untimely phone calls etc.

    Branch Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Newcastle (Australia)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, completed an online test, was offered a phone interview with a recruitment consultant and then a face to face interview with the area manager.
    The most stressful thing was the online test which lasted about 90 minutes and included a personality test (very frustrating), a medium difficulty comprehension test and some statistical analysis tests. You will need to be prepared to do some maths and fairly difficult percentage and graph based questions for the maths part.

    The phone interview was easy with a number of broad very open questions and the face to face interview was much more direct.

    Come prepared with lots of varied real life experiences for the questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you help support the development of your team members? How do you coach them? Provide examples.   1 Answer
    • How will you help the branch drive results? Give examples how you have done this in a previous role?   Answer Question
