Customer Order Management Representative (Coop) Interview

Customer Order Management Representative (Coop)
Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Suncor in June 2014.

Interview Details – Two interviewers, but only one of them asked me questions.
The first part of the interview went through my resume, so questions were like describe my previous work experiences, the reasons I chose my program as my major and such. The second part were all behavioral questions, so of them were typical questions related to teamwork and prioritization.
The interview last for 45 mins which I think was quite wrong because for most of the time, I was answering questions. I don't remember the exact number of questions being asked but I think there were more than 8.

The interviewers were friendly and knew the position well. They were able to answer my questions.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you observed an unsafe behavior.   Answer Question

OEMS Coordinator Interview

OEMS Coordinator

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Suncor in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a screening call roughly a week later. I was contacted by HR to set up an in person Interview with two people in the group and HR. STARS style questions, nothing out of the ordinary.
I was then contacted by HR for a 2nd interview. It was supposed to be with one of the people from before & manager, but ended up being with two colleagues. This was much more along the personal style and work "fit", but was still structured. I provided them with a package of my credentials and references, (which they seemed unprepared for). I was told that they would be making a decision and I would hear from them by the end of week.....I didn't.
Early the next week I received an form email from HR that they were "unable to proceed with processing my application".....what does that even mean?????? I responded to the HR rep and interviewer, inviting them to provide me with some constructive feedback. I have not heard back from them, nor do I expect to. It shows me dismissive disrespect for the time we mutually put into the process. Perhaps I dodged a bullet if that is part of the culture

Interview Question – Nothing really unexpected...just standard "STARS" questions   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Reliability and Maintenance Engineer - Co-op Interview

Reliability and Maintenance Engineer - Co-op

I applied online - interviewed at Suncor in July 2013.

Interview Details – I got a telephonic interview with Suncor. On the day of interview, I kept on waiting but they didn't call me back and didn't even gave me an email mentioning the reason why they couldn't call me back. Then, next day I got an email saying that my interview has been rescheduled and finally I got a call next day. The interviewer was pretty much easy on first 30 minutes. In next 30 minutes, he started to ask me questions about Designing and Drafting software. I told him that I am interested in Reliability and Maintenance and it is not having any application of these software but still he kept on asking and then he was not even aware of the duties/requirements listed for this position. I told him about the requirements and duties listed on their posting and then he said that "Oh, I don't have the posting right in front of me but I will check with our HR" and then at the end he said that well we are right now hiring for design engineers. And then as expected, I didn't got any call back or response from their side after the interview.

Interview Question – most unexpected question was regarding the design stuff. Though, I applied for reliability and maintenance position that had nothing to do with designing and drafting, the interviewer kept on asking me questions on designing software. I was surprised that he was not even knowing the duties mentioned for this posting on their website.   Answer Question
