    Interview is question and case based and it is scored. There are at least 2 individuals interviewing you, I've had up to 6. Then, there is often a testing component. For a research position, this could a statistics analysis to be done, a presentation to be made, or a series of questions asking the research methods you would use to approach the question given.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CAMH in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Sent in resume and cover letter to HR email, but addressed cover letter to manager of department I was applying to. They are the ones who will be making the final decisions. Called in for an interview several weeks later and was not given much notice. I was Interviewed by the Department manager and an HR staff member. They took turns asking me to answer questions and wrote down notes while I spoke. There are 10 questions, they will be about topics covered in the job posting. They will usually also ask you about what diversity means to you as diversity is an important part of CAMH's corporate structure. This portion of the interview took half an hour and for the second potion of my interview I had to perform and excel test because it was relevant to my job. I was given half an hour for this portion as well. Make sure you log in and and open excel before they start the timer as it can take some time for the computer to boot up. Was called about a week and a half later to be informed that they would be checking my references and if those checked out I had the job.
