Emergency and Non-Emergency Communication Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at City of Calgary in October 2010.

Interview Details – There are 3 steps, an initial interview of 5 minutes, and then an aptitude test, and then finally a formal interview. The first interview is to evaluate if the person has the basic qualifications, and what are the basic motivations for taking on the job. The aptitude test involves evaluating a number of emergency and non-emergency calls, typing in the details to the emergency and non-emergency authorities and to show proper judgement. If they pass this, they are required to fill out a long form involving past criminal, drug and alcohol history. The final interview is to see if the person has the right mindset by evaluating their past activities in past jobs on how fit they would be in the position. If this is done, the last candidate is then run through a police check, drug tests, and 6 week training period.

Interview Question – Give a good example of an emergency or problem that was solved using ingenuity without breaking any laws.   View Answer
