I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Sydney) in Aug 2016

Interview

Multi-stage selection process: - Online applications including resume, study history and university results; immediate cull of many at this stage - After the cull, online aptitude and psychometric testing through well-known test providers - Once passing the aptitude and psychometric testing, a short video interview (automated process using pre-recorded questions, with short amount of time to compose responses, followed by recorded response) - Finally an assessment centre of around 20 applicants. The assessment centre included one stage involving a team project (to assess collaboration and group dynamics, as well as negotiation and group presentation skills), one stage of individual interview (reasonably standard questions), and one stage of individual presentation (see question below). This was the final stage.

I applied online. The process took 6 months. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Sydney) in Aug 2015

Interview

The interview process for Summer Internships are about equivalent to the Graduate roles. The process involved an online application followed by various stages of online testing and video interviews. This culminated in a half day assessment centre, including group and individual activities and one on one interviewing. Overall, CommBank was well organised, structured and helpful at each stage. They helped you to make the best impression and whilst some stages were difficult, the great attitude displayed by the staff made it better.

Interview Questions
  • At the video interview stage the questions were personal and high level in nature. Questions such as; name something you're passionate about outside of university and work; name some key industry trends; and general questions such as your current studies.
  • At the assessment centre you can expect group activity questions such as; analysis of a fictional competitor product and what can be implemented to compete and market to the audience specified; present an idea for the bank to be involved in to improve its market competitiveness. At the same time, a one on one interview asked some general questions like times you have been innovative and creative.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Sydney) in Oct 2011

Interview

The application process begins with an online form, where you answer some questions regarding your eagerness to apply & you upload the results of your academic transcript. You are asked to complete an online comprehension test, which had a time limit & consisted of a paragraph of text & 5 questions to answer regarding that text. This continues on until the time has run out. The next step is an interview process, conducted over an entire day. It involves a mathematics test, a group activity with the other applicants, and a one-on-one interview with a manager. When you have been offered a position, you are given a spreadsheet of positions that are available. These positions have a description of the role, the department & the nature of the work you'll be expected to perform. You then submit your preferences & may or may not be asked to do a phone interview with the manager of that role.

Interview Questions
  • Looking at your transcript, you failed a subject twice. Why do you think that is & how did you succeed?
