    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to the position via the external Employment opportunities page on the CAMH website on March 19th, 2015. I received an email from the research manager on May 6th, 2015 requesting an interview on May 15th, 2015. The email was very kind. During the interview the research manager and the research-scientist were very kind, making jokes, being very personable. It was a very positive experience. I was asked for my references and told that I would hear from them by the end of May. I received a phone call from the research manager on May 25th, 2015 informing me that they were unable to hire any of the candidates because none of them met the requirements to qualify as an RA II. As such, they were forced to repost the job internally as an RA I (CAMH HRs rules). The research manager encouraged me to apply.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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.
