I got through CBA!!
Congratulations! You have done very well throughout our recruitment process and we would like to invite you to attend an assessment centre held onsite at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
All assessment centres will be held at Level 35, 52 Martin Place, Sydney. The entrance to this building is on Phillip Street. Once inside, you will need to take the first bank of lifts to the reception on the 35th floor. The closest train station to this building is Wynyard or Martin Place.
If you are not based in Sydney you will need to make arrangements for travel and accommodation. Unfortunately the Commonwealth Bank does not cover this cost.
The Retail Banking Services assessment centre is on Monday May 8th.
Book yourself in!
Our booking system is self serve and you are able to book a time and date for testing that is suitable for you. Please make sure that you book yourself in immediately as places are available on a first served basis.
If you need to reschedule, please contact us prior to your specified assessment date. There is no guarantee that an alternative time will be available. The assessment centre period is noted above.
To make a booking please log on to www.commbank.com.au/gradconnect and enter your email address and password.
Please note that the assessment centre stage of the process will take approximately 2.5 hours
What does an Assessment Centre involve?
The assessment centre is designed to assess your skills and abilities against the key competencies required for success on the GradConnect program. To assess these competencies objectively, fairly and accurately, a series of exercises will be conducted, including a group discussion and an individual presentation.
These exercises provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate, in a practical manner, your ability to cope with situations that you may encounter working as a graduate within the Commonwealth Bank. You will not be expected to have a detailed understanding of the Bank’s culture or operating environment.
The results of the assessment centre will not be examined in isolation. They will be combined with other sources of information, such as interviews, psychometric testing, your previous work history, qualifications and other achievements, to assist the Commonwealth Bank in making an objective selection decision.
How can I prepare for the Assessment Centre?
· Have a good sleep the night before.
· Plan your travel so that you arrive in plenty of time (10 mins prior to commencement of assessment centre)
· Bring reading glasses if you need them
· Dress Requirements: Business Attire
· Review the Commonwealth Bank website www.commbank.com.au
Will I receive feedback on my results?
YES! We will contact everyone and discuss feedback verbally. This will hopefully assist you in future job applications.
Feedback will be provided by 19 May 2006. If you have not received an email or phone call by this date please contact the Commonwealth Bank graduate hotline 1800 448 880.
Thanks again for your interest in GradConnect with the Commonwealth Bank and good luck with your application.

I guess I am excited, but also really scared as the job is in Sydney which means leaving Kon and life as I know it to live an expensive life with strangers. Who cares, it's only an interview, an adventure and a trip to Sydney.
Also got a call back from Deloitte for a final interview on Friday. And to think I was happy with just a govt job. Life is so unpredictable! That's why I love it. Going with Kon for ANZAC day service tomorrow. YAYNESS.
