Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CIHI in July 2011.

Interview Details – 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.

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and 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).

Interview Question – How would you define a good team?   Answer Question

Research Associate-type Position Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON (Canada)

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.

Interview Question – Why do you think your background makes you suitable to be a researcher at cihi?   View Answer
