If I am selected for an interview, what can I expect?

At Roy Hill, we use behavioural-based interviews, values testing and assessment centres to select the real people that will align to our values of Lead, Care, Think and Perform. Assessment centres involve a half-day of interviews and practical assessments that might include games and construction challenges. The most important thing to remember is that we want to see the ‘real’ you by observing your natural behaviour, strengths and weaknesses – not whether your team wins or loses at the game.
