    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at CAE (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a local recruitment website and was contacted about a week later. My interview with the Head of Legal was straightforward and helpful. She made it very clear about expectation of the role and things I would need to consider in the role especially about the travelling that would be involved. After a hiatus, I was asked to return for a second interview with the head of human resources but did not take it further after considering the travelling factor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Applied through campus career website. Very straight forward application, you submit a cv, cover letter, and transcript. Interview was half behavioural and half technical. But I would say they don't care much about your personality, as long as you have minimum logic and work ethic. So your chances of getting hired are proportional to your knowledge in programming. Specifically C or Fortran.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Got a call from the HR person and asked me some basic questions about current employment,availabilites and expectations. After that, we set up a date for an interview with a hiring manager. The interview was fully bilingual 50% French, 50% English. 2 managers interviewed me. They asked me the usual questions (tell me about yourself, describe what you did in your previous internships, what makes you the best candidate, etc...) and then some situatutional questions: eg. What would you do if you couldn't complete a project on time and the client was coming the morning after? After that, they gave me some problems on paper to solve. Nothing too difficult if you are qualified. Logic diagrams, control system diagrams, finding the mistakes in a code.
