    Interview Details

    The interview process was a three step process. This included interviews with the supervisor, personnel from the business unit for support as well as the SCM manager. After interviewing, I was contacted a few days later and presented with an offer letter. The offer letter was contingent upon my passing a drug test.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    All hiring was done through the career website portal, however, there were contacts within the company that were avaliable to help (especially to get resumes to them close to the interview process. Interviewers were very nice (panel of 3) and came to our school to interview. The interview started with them talking about themselves, which was interesting, and was relatively informal to start. Questions began with general ones related to resume and moved to others related to the culture of the workplace (these really showed the focus of the company).

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    Typical interview questions about your background, major, past work experiences. Interviewer was happy to know that I knew my way around Excel, and I think this is what got me the job. Another key attribute was mentioning a time I had done something out of safety in a previous experience, as Suncor has a big Safety culture. Contacted by HR, called back an hour after interview from HR with offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the university's co-op system. Had an interview 3 weeks after applying. Majority of the co-op students (me as well) are asked to go through thier resume. It is benificial if you explain about your resume in detail. Questions about: why you choose mechanical engineering, favourite course, least favourite course, example of when you encountered conflict and an exaple of a time where you showed initiative for safety. Safety is really important.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Suncor in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Character questions and body language i guess. Arrived earlier and was told to wait and at the end i got offered the job same day as my interviewer was impressed by my performance.
    I was asked where i see myself in 5 years from now. I expected all questions as i prepared for it and asked around so nothing really took me unawares to be honest.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    Decent process, First interview with HR and 2 hiring managers. They went over the resume, basic behavioral interview questions concerning teamwork, strengths, weakness, where do you see yourself in 5 years and etc.... Just know every aspect of your resume inside out and be prepared to explain what you did in your past relevant work experiences. It was not that difficult of an interview.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their career portal. Took approximately 2 and a half weeks for them to get back to me. They contacted me by email, asking me to phone back to them to schedule an hour-long interview two days after. The interviewer is from a technical background and is a very nice person. He began by asking me to describe things I have done in my resume before moving on to behavioural questions. This lasts for approx. 35 mins; the rest of the time was dedicated to me asking them questions.
