Please describe the interview process and assessments.
I submitted a CV and a cover letter, which was followed up with two interviews. I was out of town, so this was over Skype.
Graduate, Auckland
I had to go through two interviews, the first one being 1 hour long. The interview was easy going and just felt like a conversation you would have outside. The second interview was only 10 minutes long where two other people asked me a couple of general questions and showed me around the office.
