Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Agrium in February 2010.

Interview Details – I experienced the basic behaviour based interview in my two group/panel interview sessions. The first session was with people I'd be working directly with and the second interview was with direct leaders. Each session I was asked how I handled a certain situation in the past and provide examples of what I did. So a lot of the questions were about how I handled past conflicts, working with different stakeholders, managing challenging projects, etc.

The interview process was pretty much a dream. Great communication on the process during the interviews and on the phones. The administrator was extremely helpful scheduling my interviews and even onboarded and there was quick turnaround on decisions on my hiring when I made follow-up inquiries.

Interview Question – Tell me about the way in which you worked with your direct reports or team members to develop new and creative ideas to solve business problems.   Answer Question
