    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Canadian Cancer Society in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying I had a phone screening interview, which was followed by a meeting with the regional director. I thought the meeting was an interview, but it was just a meeting. After the meeting I was set up to have three-way Skype interview, approximately a week later. I received a phone call 1.5 weeks later from an HR person saying they had chosen to move forward with another candidate.

    Two months later I was called in to meet with someone in person, as well as some of the society volunteers. It was a 4 hour meeting, after which I was still not successful in obtaining the position.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given a list of tasks that had varying amounts of urgency due throughout the week and had to explain how I would tackle the situation and prioritize.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Cancer Society in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    consist of 2 interviews, one month passed by the time I sent my resume and the time I got hired. Started to work one month after being hired.

    Your personal values and lifestyle should fit the organisation's.

    First interview:
    - manager was 45 minutes late...
    - we had a great talk about the job, the person leaving was present, that helped
    Second interview:
    - HR and director were present
    - classic HR interview (just reassure them that you are the person they are looking for)

    HR told me on the Thursday of the interview they would give me news about the job before the end of the next week; at 3 o'clock the Friday after I still hadn't had a call from them and decided to communicate with them... They announced me I was the chosen one!
