    Interview

    I applied by sending my resume to the the job posting. I got a call for an interview a day later. I attended the interview and the interview proceeded as per usual. However, at the end the interviewer decides to talk about how I was "late". I arrived on-time as the bus had some unforeseen circumstances. To me, it honestly seemed like she said no the moment she saw me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Canadian Tire (Regina, SK (Canada)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I had a friend who had been working there for two weeks, and I was in search for summer job. He introduced me to the automotive manager, and I asked him if he needed anyone. After having a short conversation with him, I handed him my resume and went home. I called back a few times and finally the HR person contacted me and I went in for an interview. It was a fairly short interview and mostly involved questions asking me about myself, and how I had demonstrated leadership in my life.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Canadian Tire (Sydney, NS (Canada)) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Dropped off resume to a department manager and formerly introduced myself. Department manager indicated that he would organize interviews in the next few weeks. I made a point to follow up every week until the department manager eventually interviewed me on the spot. Questions were rather straight forward and were taken from a standard interview sheet that he was given from upper management. After interview, department manager asked when I would be available to start, and in conclusion I was on payroll by the following week.
