    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CIHI in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR person. Had a short phone interview and was called for in-person panel interview consisting of 3 people (2 managers and the HR). Usual competency questions; asked to provide a lot of examples from past experiences. After the interview, I was given 1-hour skill test requiring to analyze in-house data. The interview was rather easy, but the test was difficult (was not familiar with the type of analysis I was asked to perform - its proficiency was not required in the job posting).

    Research Associate-type Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    The process took 3 days - interviewed at CIHI in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    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.
