Contract Administrator Interview

Contract Administrator

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Bombardier Aerospace.

Interview Details – Applied in June 2013 through personal referral. Preliminary interview over the phone in August 2013. More formal phone interview one week later, lasting approximately 40 minutes. Following this I was invited for an in person interview in Toronto in September, 4 weeks later, in October, I was invited for an interview with management in Toronto. 1 week later I was told they were prepared to make me an offer but the person who would be my direct supervisor would like to have a face to face meeting. I called three times to set up the timing for this meeting, and received no response to that, or a subsequent request for an update on whether or not my candidacy was still under consideration.

Interview Question – Caught me off guard by asking about salary expectations during the preliminary interview.   Answer Question
