Application Process & Interviews at TAL Australia

8.5 rating for Recruitment, based on 12 reviews
Please describe the interview process and assessments.
The process was a little different to what was mentioned in the job advertisement. E.g. online testing was completed after the interview rather than before. There was a phone interview and two face to face interviews with senior managers from around the business. The interviewers were very friendly and made me feel comfortable immediately. The only part of the recruitment process that I didn't quite like was the length. There was one month gap between my first face to face interview and my second. Also timelines that were given were never on schedule. The entire process took 4 months which I think is a long time, as it can be easy for the candidate to lose interest when there are other companies who do the entire process in a few weeks. There was also a digital video interview before any of the face to face or phone interview. Online tests included numeracy and literacy as well as personal behaviour/attributes.

As a co-op student at university my hiring process was slightly simpler. I submitted an application, attended and interview and completed a psychometric test.

- Be open and honest with your answers in interviews. - If you don't know how to answer a question, don't be afraid to ask for a bit of time to reflect. - If you don't know the answer to a question, saying that you don't know the answer but describing how you would go about finding the answer is a good option.

It's best to research about the company on their website and understand their values and culture. Also, some background research on life insurance and current affairs happening in the industry would be very useful.
