Diabolus in singulis est
You know, on the surface of it, it doesn't sound like that bad an idea.
Who hasn't been annoyed by the "Tell us of a time when you..." and "How would you deal with..." questions and you scramble around for one of the myriad times that might or might not be applicable to what the interviewer wants to hear at that very moment?
More than once I've wanted to go "How about you put me in that situation and I'll show you?"
Surely, as those questions are ALL based on daily real situations, it should be no problems for a giant like Telstra to expose you to one during the 5-day procedure, right? Right?! They wouldn't ask them if they weren't based on reality, I'm sure.
