Supervisor Interview

Supervisor

The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Canada Post in June 2012.

Interview Details – Very pleasant. Personality profile type interview. Normally there would be 2-3 in the interview, but I just had one. The HR lady was extremely open about what to expect on the job, as well as salary, scheduling, and work culture. I felt very comfortable and left without any unanswered questions. I asked blunt questions about things I had heard and she was really open and up front about things. She took a lot of notes, writing down key phrases I had said. Overall, probably one of the smartest, most open interviews I've ever been through.

Interview Question – How do you handle conflict in the work place?   Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Canada Post.

Interview Details – Hiring is done by resume and waiting for a call. If you are unlucky enough to be called, you will then spend several weeks being evaluated. I don't understand why there is a 50 word minimum. There is nothing else to put into this box already! Once upon a time there was a little girl named Goldilocks.

Interview Question – I don't think that there are any unexpected questions.   View Answer

Supervisor Interview

Supervisor
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Canada Post in May 2013.

Interview Details – The application process is done electronically through the canada post careers website. I submitted my resume and after a couple of weeks I received a call and did a phone interview. If you pass the phone interview process you then have to complete an online skills test. This test confirms you have a good understanding of Microsoft Excel and Word. You will need to have a decent understanding of both. If you pass this stage then you get called for a formal interview. The interview was a panel interview attended by 3 Canada post personnel. One person essentially is the witness and 2 individuals are actually conducting the interview. The interview consisted of examples of past job experience and how it ties into the current job you are applying for.

Interview Question – Name a time where things didn't go your way. What did you do about it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. The job is a unionized position. it was a contract position.
