Please describe the interview process and assessments.
Good. 3 open ended and original questions that led me towards the role and highlight my suitability. Followed by phone and in person interview pre-COVID
Graduate, Brisbane
After the online application, I attended an assessment centre which was a group activity where candidates were placed in certain scenarios. The next stage was an interview with a partner.
Graduate, Melbourne
Received the Graduate role having completed the 2018/19 Summer Vacation Program. It was a very simple interview process: Online application, casual phone interview, assessment centre and final individual partner interview.
Graduate, Melbourne
I was offered a graduate position subsequent to completing the Summer Vacation Program at ShineWing Australia. Standard interview/assessment centre process involved in applying for vacationer program (online application, phone interview, assessment centre, partner interview). People and Culture team was very prompt in moving along the process, and there wasn't too long a wait between stages - more timely compared to other firms.
Graduate, Melbourne
I had a 30-45 minute interview with the Head of People and Culture. It was very relaxed and felt a lot more like a conversation rather than an interview. I did 2-3 general literacy and numeracy tests as part of my assessments that were about 15 minutes each.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very quick, efficient and enjoyable.

There is an application you put through answering questions and submitting your resume. Then there is a phone call screening, which then leads to a day to meet and spend time with ShineWing Australia and you get to hear from all types of people within the company (assessment centre). The day also includes a few routine tests and a chat amongst other interviewees and partners. If you are able to stand out, you get invited back for an interview. My interview was with a partner, one on one.

Graduate, Melbourne
The interview and assessments process was very quick and there was constant communication which was assuring.
Graduate, Melbourne
What questions were you asked in your interviews?
General conversational
Graduate, Melbourne
Why did you choose audit? What qualities do you think makes a good auditor? What was a time where you were successful? What was a time where you failed?
Graduate, Melbourne
First part was a 'get to know you', which made you feel quite at ease and comfortable, then general 'how have you solved a problem' etc.
Graduate, Melbourne
Why I wanted to work in Audit, what skills a successful auditor should possess, why ShineWing Australia rebranded from Moore Stephens, and also some personal questions about hobbies, the footy etc!
Graduate, Melbourne
The questions I was asked were around the type of work I had been doing, what I am looking for in my role and general questions about me.
Graduate, Melbourne
Asked about past experiences/more story telling.
Graduate, Melbourne
The questions asked were: - What you think the job entails, what skills will be needed? - What your future, over the next few years will look like? - What type of music do you listen to? - Do you like trying new things? When was the last time you did that? etc. The questions were more or less along those lines, but the interview felt more like a conversation.
Graduate, Melbourne
What conflict have you faced? How does your values fit with the firm's values.
Graduate, Melbourne
Who did I lean on for advice? How well I think I am able to deal with juggling multiple tasks at one time. Describe a time when I made a mistake and how I went about it.
Graduate, Melbourne
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Do research on the company and come across as a friendly and devoted, potential member to the team.
Graduate, Brisbane
Show your individuality and be genuine
Graduate, Melbourne
In general, participation in university engagement is especially important. E.g. university societies and club committees provide a lot of real life experience that helps with applying for a job. Shinewing Australia is looking for candidates that they believe will fit in with the company's culture. Ensure that the interviewer can see that you are motivated, hardworking and most importantly, someone that they would want to work with at the company.
Graduate, Melbourne
Especially in the assessment centre stage: take it seriously, however not too seriously, the interviewers are looking for cultural fit rather than someone who may know all the answers and may talk over others to try to stand out. Contribute and listen to others, be confident but not assertive!
Graduate, Melbourne
Find a particular reason for why you wish to work at the firm. Also just be yourself, do not act out of character.
Graduate, Melbourne
Definitely to be yourself. In terms of preparing, research the company and its people and hone in what the company's goal and trajectory is. ShineWing Australia is a more niche company.
Graduate, Melbourne
Be yourself, don't oversell yourself as you'll get caught out.
Graduate, Melbourne
I would recommend them to research a bit about the company they are applying to.
Graduate, Melbourne
I think it would be best to research the firm a bit to show some prior knowledge. It's also great to be natural, not read off pre-prepared answers and exhibit an excited and can-do attitude.
