    Internal Audit Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Waste Connections in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The most unprofessional process I've ever been through... Mind you, an interview was for a mid-senior level position: a lineup of candidates waiting for their turn in the hall, 30 min interviews, one after another, etc... Although I was brought in for an interview through an employment agency, as I had many times before with other companies, this was the first time I was not given business cards by my interviewers. I felt as if I was taking a final with the clock ticking in the corner of my screen! Just a very poorly organized process that left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Waste Connections.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online application. A few days later, HR contacted me. HR person started going over my resume; first question asked was if I had a four year degree. Found this a bit insulting and it also made me wonder if they had even looked at my resume. After the phone call, HR asked me to complete an online math test; which I did. Afterwards, I was asked to go for an interview.

    This interview was the least professional interview I have experienced throughout this process. I interviewed with an engineer, he proceeded to ask the normal questions of "tell me about yourself", about previous experience, and education. He then asked random behavioral questions, how I describe myself, how others would describe me and who is a role model to me, famous and non-famous. He also asked questions about how I handled certain situations while I was in school. The least professional part was asking me how I, as a woman, would handle certain aspects of working in a landfill. Lastly, he said he also did not like that I have an advanced degree.

    Within two days I received a rejection email from a do not reply email address.
