Short listed candidates are required to report for their interview 15 minutes before their scheduled interview time.

Candidates are provided with a quiet space and 15 minutes with some of the interview questions to enable them to prepare for the interview. SuniTAFE finds that we get the most from our candidates using this method. 

SuniTAFE use Targeted Selection Behavioral Interviewing techniques. In most cases, candidates are interviewed by a panel of three members. The interview panel look for STAR responses to the interview questions, a Situation or a Task, the Action that was taken and the Results of the action.

SuniTAFE endeavors to contact candidates at least one week after the interview has been conducted to let them know the outcome, this allows us time to complete our internal reporting and reference checking.
