- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Bruce Power in March 2013.
1st round: Preliminary Math and science Test (physics, math, chemistry). Not hard if you have a degree, but still need to review
2nd round: Structured, Behavioral and knowledge test
Do not underestimate the second round. It seems to have been easier in the past, but much more challenging now. Normal behavioural questions, but knowledge in mechanical concepts is discussed thoroughly.
- They ask you to just know about CANDU before the interview(hence I understimated), but for the interiew you really need to know fluid mechanics..valves, pumps(types of pumps), turbines, heat exchangers...emphasis of mechanical concepts. A little bit of electrical concepts, but fairly straightforward. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Bruce Power (Hamilton, ON (Canada)) in February 2012.
I applied through the Bruce Power website. I received an email asking for a preliminary phone interview. This first interview was meant to confirm application details, the only actual question was at the end when I was asked to define what safety culture was.
I received a follow-up email approximately 2 weeks later asking for a more formal email, again by phone. I had prepared a list of answers to all common questions so nothing was a surprise and it was easy to simply speak out my answer off my notes considering it was over the phone. It is worth mentioning you can be considered for other positions within Bruce based on your interview. I was given a choice between two positions afterwards.
A while later I got an email stating I've been selected for either an 8 month or 16 month position, I choose the 16month. Once I confirmed I had to do a security check which takes forever and I nearly didnt have it done by my start date, although there isnt anything you can do on your own end to speed up the process.
- The interview was typical behavioral and situational questions, such as strength/weakness, favourite project, etc. There were no technical questions. Answer Question
None - Was internship.

I applied online. The process took 8+ months – interviewed at Bruce Power (Kincardine, ON (Canada)) in November 2010.
Joke, nothing technical all silly HR what if, give us a time when you showed safe work practices blah blah blah
they don't negotiation they dictate what you get, the whole time they make you feel like they are doing you a favour for offering you a job and give less than 5 days to response to the offer.
