    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Canada Post.

    Interview

    Invited by email for an interview. But the decision process dragged on farther than what was promised. Poor lack of communication on their side. Very unprofessional especially for an hr position. Completely disappointed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Canada Post (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First interview with HR was over the phone for 15-20 minutes...just background questions. (Easy) Second interview was with the hiring Director and a peer of the role. All questions were behavioral and answers needed to relate back to CP's core values. (Medium difficulty, just be sure to review 5-6 examples of good work that you can reference for these.) Third Interview was with the Director again and then meeting the future team, direct reports and peers in separate meetings. (Easy, very conversational.) Fourth step, criminal background check and references. References were emailed a five page questionnaire and then some were randomly called. The process was very slow; I applied for the position on April 15th and was eventually turned down on July 2nd.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview consisted of 5 behavioral based questions with 4 interviewers in the same room taking turns asking you the 5 questions. Started off with pretty basic (get to know you type of questions) Interviewers were all very friendly and nice to talk to. They accommodated my time schedule (although they were 15 min late) as well.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Canada Post (North Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    There's the route, do it. No real interview, just see supervisor at station, and your hired and documented later. They couldn't staff any routes at that point in time. What more do you want it was we'll take anybody at that point, as long as you were breathing..
