    Interview Details

    Initial perception of people was very positive. Everyone seemed so happy to work there at that time in the company's history. Interview process seemed very organized and thorough. Phone interview from HR, then panel interview, then skills testing then another panel interview. By the end though I had enough information to know I would fit well and wanted the job.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation was possible but I didn't push enough.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cirque du Soleil in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job and was called some time later. That was the phone interview. We discussed CV, salary expectations, career objectives, languages, etc. They were very interested in what you like or don't like to do. After that I passed to an interview with the HR person, the department director and senior manger. They explained more about the position and asked me more in detail about my work experience and how this was aligned to what I had done in the past. The interview lasted about an hour. The most difficult part was when they asked me to create a strategy for one of their sponsors right there.
