Very Easy Interview

New Graduate - Technology Leadership Program Interview

New Graduate - Technology Leadership Program
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and about 3 weeks later received an email from Campus Program Specialist for a 15 minute phone interview. I was given two 2-hour slots and was told that I will receive a phone call anytime between these two slots.

I didn't receive any phone call from Canadian Tire within a given timeframe. I emailed back but didn't receive any reply.

Many phone calls and voicemails later, I was told that they selected a bunch of candidates from the first few they called for the in-person interview. They didn't think it was necessary to inform remaining candidates waiting for a phone call about the development.

This was the worst interview process experience I had in my professional career. The hiring process itself for the role of "Technology Leadership Program" says a lot about leadership and coordination within the company.

Interview Details – Culture is warm. Vetted through my resume, then a meeting with HR first, followed by an interview by the person I would be reporting to, 3rd interview was with his manager for approval, and then a 4th for overall review approval again with HR and my report to.

Coordinator, Dealer Services Interview

Coordinator, Dealer Services
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire in September 2013.

Interview Details – I did a phone interview and in-person interview. The staff were incredibly friendly, the questions were all very normal (tell us about yourself, skills, weaknesses, experience, etc.). The only thing that threw me was the the job listing and initial interview led me to believe I was interviewing for a job that integrated HR skills and training, and then when I arrived for the in-person interview I was told it was more of an executive assistant role.

Interview Question – Honestly, there were no exceptionally difficult questions...   Answer Question

Supply Chain Analyst Interview

Supply Chain Analyst
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Canadian Tire in September 2009.

Interview Details – There were three interviewers in total, one from HR, and the other two were team leads from two different teams. A general behavioural interview took place, in addition to a few questions about how to estimate the forecast of a few products that the interviewers have brought along. Overall, the interview was on the easy side, and with some prep work on supply chain and forecasting the job should be easy to get.

Interview Question – We have three products here. If you were to forecast the demand for these products for the coming year, what information would you look at, and why?   Answer Question
