    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at City of Mississauga Canada in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    This position required an online application, unless the applicant is already an internal member personnel, in which case he or she could apply using the Internal Application. The application would be put in a pool, and successful applicants would receive a phone call for an interview.

    The interview consists of three parts and lasts for almost two hours. The first part is a written test, where applicants answer questions about situations relating to a camp setting. Examples include creating your own games, briefly explaining what you would do in an emergency, and so forth, You have a time limit of approximately half an hour.

    The second part is a 1:1 interview. Here they ask you questions about your history (e.g. what experience have you had with children, where have you worked), situation questions (e.g. a child is hurt while you are crossing a football field, what do you do), and general questions about yourself (e.g. tell me about yourself, what did you enjoy about your past jobs, what do you hope for in the future).

    The third part is a group exercise, and gauged what kind of person candidates are in real life. Groups were given a set of words. With the words we were supposed to create a game as well as play it out for the interviewees.

    The employee would call in a few days if you were successful, or email you if you were not. If not, you may be put in a "waiting" pool where, if successful candidates decide not to take the job, you would get the job. You are then given a day of training, and are given time to plan what to do for the camp.
