    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at City of Edmonton (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Received a call for an interview about a month after applying, notified that I got the position about a month before the start date. Interviewed with two head facility supervisors at once, they were friendly and asked fair questions related to the job and some behavior descriptive I believe. The interviewers seemed professional and had a copy of my resume and cover letter to reference during the interview. Only complaint about the hiring process would be that they don't make their decision sooner.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at City of Edmonton (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    A panel of two upper management took turns asking questions for a half hour. One was engaging, the other more intimidating with her silences. They each had at least four pages of standard questions they ask each candidate. Their questions had multiple parts, hence they repeated them frequently. The panelists would try to write down as much of what you said as possible, which led to more silences and intimidation.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you handled a conflict. Who was involved? How did you handle it? What was the result?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The position is unionized, so the wage is set but fair. They took a long time to make the offer after the interview, however.
