    Interview

    60 minutes test screening of people. 4 tests. Two logical tests with 5 questions each. Two technical tests. 60 minutes test screening of people. 4 tests. Two logical tests with 5 questions each. Two technical tests.

    Interview Questions

    • Logical tests were basically word trick questions. Nothing to do with logic at all. It's like a game. You play a lot with these types of questions then you get better with it. If done first time it'll take you around 40 minutes for both tests. Technical questions were for someone who's in community college taking Java course.   1 Answer

    Interview comprised of two steps: An assessment test and an in person interview. First you will be invited to CIHI to complete an assessment test based on the job role. My Assessment test was based on Java and J2EE. After the test, depending on whether you pass or fail, you may be invited for an in-person interview with a technical staff and hiring manager.

    Research Associate-type Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CIHI (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Interviews were easy enough, but the questions asked indicated that the interviewers did not really understand statisitcs or experimental design. The skills test was kind of odd. It was a good idea, they provided some data and asked you to write up your impressions of it. But the data set was poorly selected, in that there wasn't much to be said about it. It was demographics on birth rate, but there were no outliers or patterns that invited speculation or interpretation. Again, I'm not sure about the hiring managers' understanding of research.
