Considered. Will be in the same scheme as the local universities but a much lower salary. Depending on which job you are applying for. Should be around 2.8-3k range for mx schemes.

If this info can help anyone:

I did PT on third week of Oct 2018, got no news for 8 weeks, did my interview last week, unit preview this week, medical next week.

Until you get any email confirming that you are rejected, still got chance.

Itís really about what role youíve applied for. Went for a few gov job interview with a written test before the same day panel interview. Questions vary but quite standard. For examples, HR roles will ask you about best HR practices etc. May include general questions also such as why do you wanna join the public sector. Sometimes you only have to choose 1 out of a few questions to answer. Sometimes need to answer all questions. So read carefully. You wonít have much time to finish but donít worry, I think they generally just wanna see how you write and briefly your thoughts on the particular issue. They may read and bring it up during the panel interview. So you can further elaborate if they do! All the best

Hi all, did my PT and went for first round of interview last week. Waiting for results but I saw on forum that some got call a few days for site preview after the 1st interview. Abit worried now.

Smile My experience at the inteview

happy new year, time to give back to the community as hiring warms up!

I went for my interview, now awaiting site preview. HR said she will call within 2 weeks if I am further shortlisted.

I enquired with my future boss about the site preview. He said it is just for people who have never been inside a camp, to get a culture shock and possibly, reject the job immediately. Rarely do commanders have the task of shortlisting candidates at site preview these days. Usually, when HR offers the salary, people will also run, no need for them to strike off.

HR said, from the site preview to signing, 6 weeks. People also get rejected for clearance issues. If I count from today, I may start work in the middle of March.

If you see asterix * on DXO recruitment page, 90% it is just a beginner officer job, meaning equivalent to a fresh sign on CPT. though it says "manager", you likely have nobody to manage. They just need a title for the sake of corporate people like me to be tempted.

The commander did make a good point though. In the military things work differently. Unless you consider a cleaning supervisor with 10 cleaners as "managerial" otherwise most jobs in the military now do not require managing people. Based on your appointment, people must take your instruction. Usually, only scholars who got parachuted in will have people to manage.

The job description will be 50% different from the website. HR cited, military secrecy.

the interview question asked about challenges and weakness. It does not matter to my future boss, he said it is part of the HR process.

I concur with someone's advises on this forum. Part of the skill tested is to be extremely familiar with the real job description put in your hands for only 30 mins. Too many candidates fighting for simple jobs.

It is a very simple quantitative process, HR must tick all the boxes to invite you to site preview.

I was offered a salary of $3.9k for a managerial position in dxo, a drop of almost $500 from my current pay. In terms of degree and experience, I have a FCH degree from local uni and almost 2.5 years of experience in the same field (finance). No army. Do you think this is a reasonable offer?

From what iíve read in the forum, dxo fresh grad pay seems to be around this range, so iím not sure if what they are offering me is reasonable?
