    Interview Details

    nothing much but just a lot of question is so dumbing down myself, I am frustrated by the ease of the question, not intellectually chanllenging and not at all test the ability of mine. hence, do expect more and harder question during the second round of interview, if not it means there are too few people entering the posisiotn

    Interview Details

    About a week after applying i got an email typed manually by a secretary booking an interview. 5 interviews each 30 - 45 mins back to back.
    1 guy asked many technical questions. They all ended with brain teasers and 1 interview was very motivational and behavioral.
    People were generally nice except for the same guy who asked many technicals.
    I was competing with Harvard LSE Yale grads and they only had room for 1.

    Special Projects Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of Toronto in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview call
    Detailed job description and interview process email from the HR department
    Initial discussion with the HR person
    Panel interview - two managers including immediate supervisor of the position and HR manager

    Be, honest yet careful as to how you state your state of employment with the current (immediate past) employer. Hard if one is leaving the current employment for non-alignment of basic values in the work environment. Although very important for me and many others, it would be hard to state if this is the main and only reason for changing jobs. It is important to have a couple of options or lines with as much truth without betraying confidentiality or compromising professional integrity.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of Toronto in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    After the initial emails, sent to many primary investigators, I received an email from one of the junior researchers looking for a research assistant to help with a project. The initial email gave me an idea of what the project was about, so I read about it beforehand to have something to say during the interview. Also, during the interview, there were several background questions regarding the material required knowledge for the project, which I was able to answer. Very down-to-earth atmosphere and carefree interview, just to find someone to help them with their project. Overall good process, but should rely less on marks before choosing someone. Perhaps some more weight on previous experience would help.
