Technical Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Canadian Tire in October 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was with a panel of the the team Manager, team lead and one HR person. The overall experience is very good and they didn't try to intimidate you rather getting the best out of you.

They start with the normal procedure of explaining what you are expecting to do for the job, and then get you to introduce yourself.

Most questions are soft skill questions, no many technical questions.

Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Canadian Tire in March 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of a phone interview with HR, and two 1:1 interviews with the hiring manager and HR and the AVP.

The interviewers were nice and the environment was quite relaxed, other than the pressure that I had put on myself. So try and relax for your interview.

Interview Question – What business issues would you consider while preparing a forecast   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was not much room for negotiation. The salary band for each role is pretty much fixed, so you can only negotiate the highest salary within the band which usually is not so much as the range is not high.

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Canadian Tire in September 2009.

A general behavioural interview took place, in addition to a few questions about how to estimate the forecast of a few products that the interviewers have brought along. Overall, the interview was on the easy side, and with some prep work on supply chain and forecasting the job should be easy to get.
