    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CAE.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus career website. Very straight forward application, you submit a cv, cover letter, and transcript. Interview was half behavioural and half technical. But I would say they don't care much about your personality, as long as you have minimum logic and work ethic. So your chances of getting hired are proportional to your knowledge in programming. Specifically C or Fortran.

    Applied through the University's Internship program. Got an interview in a few weeks. Was a great experience, very rateable interviewer.

Also a few questions to test how you would think about implementing a certain technology.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CAE.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from the HR person and asked me some basic questions about current employment,availabilites and expectations. After that, we set up a date for an interview with a hiring manager. The interview was fully bilingual 50% French, 50% English.
    2 managers interviewed me. They asked me the usual questions (tell me about yourself, describe what you did in your previous internships, what makes you the best candidate, etc...) and then some situatutional questions: eg. What would you do if you couldn't complete a project on time and the client was coming the morning after?
    After that, they gave me some problems on paper to solve. Nothing too difficult if you are qualified. Logic diagrams, control system diagrams, finding the mistakes in a code.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult. They put some pressure on you to see how you react while doing the technical problems.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at CAE.

    Interview Details

    I met first with the HR person and, after that, the Group Leader who finally hired me. I submitted my CV through my university's career centre since I just got my bachelor degree in Computer Engineering. I got the usual HR questions, nothing very difficult here. At the technical interview, nothing very difficult, since, at that time, CAE was using the same technology I was using at university.
