About South32 PrepPacks

JobTestPrep helps you in preparing for South32's recruitment processes. The different preparation packages on this page are designed to offer you an in-depth understanding of the tests you may come to take as part of the South32 application process.

South32 Caliper Online Tests

The Caliper assessment is available online and in pen and paper formats. This is a multiple-choice exam with 180 questions. While most applicants spend between two to three 3 hours taking the Caliper personality test, there is no actual time limit. It is essential that you answer every question, as the Caliper test cannot be scored if there are any blank spaces on the answer sheet.

South32 Mechanical Tests

Most mechanical reasoning and electrical reasoning tests introduce basic concepts of Newtonian mechanics and static and dynamic electricity. The focus is usually not on calculations, but understanding of the basic principles involved. The questions are usually standard multiple-choice questions, where only one answer is correct out of several optional answers. As the tests are timed, rehearsing the concepts and knowing what questions usually look like improves performance in terms of both accuracy and response time.

South32 Situational Judgment Tests

Situational Judgement Tests (SJT) are psychological assessments where you are presented with hypothetical, yet realistic, scenarios related to the job in which you are applying. SJTs have become a popular tool used by assessment companies, employers, and organizations to evaluate the behavioral and cognitive abilities of candidates when introduced with daily work-related situations.

South32 Interview Process

Not all interviews will be held in a one-on-one setting. Many companies use group or panel interviews to reach a collective conclusion regarding your compatibility with the company culture, as well as job-specific competencies. In this type of interview, you will be met with several different individuals from within the company, including human resources, department heads, and potential co-workers. When setting up the interview be sure to ask if there is anything specific you should bring along with you (it never hurts to bring several freshly printed copies of your CV/resume with you just in case). Practicing potential interview questions and their responses prior to going into the interview is also recommended.

How can I prepare for my SJT?

Before taking the test, read about the employer. Companies usually publish an agenda, or highlight in their publications their views of service and sales. Try to find out the competencies that are highly valued by the employer in the position you are applying for.

What is the South32's face to face interview?

There are several different types of questions you may face during your interviews. Most interviews consist of competency-based questions, but some include job-related questions, maths problems, or riddles. You can also expect to be asked about your resume and your motivation regarding the position for which you are applying. To help you prepare for your interview and other assessments, we have created a unique preparation pack with all the resources you need. The pack features a detailed interview guide written by our accredited psychologists. This guide covers various aspects of interviews and offers important tips. It discusses, among other things, competency-based questions and how to use the STAR method when answering them. It also provides advice on how to answer common interview questions. Going over these principles and reading the guide can help you prepare for your interviews.
