Prepare yourself for leading employers

Face-to-face interview

If you’re successful in the psychometric tests, you will be invited to a face-to-face interview. This will be with one or more Anglo American representatives and it’s your chance to truly impress your potential employer.

During the interview, they will go through your competencies in more detail. You can prepare by researching more into the company and practicing questions with a friend or in front of a mirror.

Assessment centre

The last stage of the hiring process is at an assessment centre. This is where you will meet the other top candidates, so it’s important to keep calm and come prepared — it will likely last the whole day.

During the day, you may be taking more aptitude tests, and you may be presented with case studies, role-plays and more interviews. Keep hydrated and keep the motivation high.

Background check

If everything goes well, before offering you a job Anglo American will run a background check. This is nothing you need to worry about, but you must be aware they will go through your personal information.

    Challenging and made me think.

    Challenged me, time was enough and got to finish the test on time. Hoping it's the same as the Anglo American test.

    Be able to analyze all the boxes carefully.

    What I like about the questions is that they train your mind. They enable the mind to analyze the shapes and not guess the next shape that has to appear.

    A great trial run.

    I think the test was not too complicated and It could have been easier if I had taken the practice test before the timed test so it was almost difficult for me to interpret the sequences between the boxes given such a short time limit.

    Follow the patterns carefully

    It is not easy to figure out what exactly the pattern is judging just from the shapes; you may have to consider looking at other indicators.

  • South Africa

    September 07, 2021

    Different sequences

    I like the fact that there aren't too many questions but I don't like the fact that the time given Is too short.

  • South Africa

    September 02, 2021

    Observations are important

    I like the way it challenges your ability to flow sequences and come up with an accurate solution of what is coming next. It helps in real situations to use your experience for the prediction of future outcomes.

    Changes of sequence and shapes

    I like that all the shapes can be fitted according to their assembly and sequence, according to their specifications.
