    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DBRS.

    Interview

    Applied through university and the overall interview was very bad. Interviewer asked questions about what you know about us, when you found out about us and expects you to know how they do their work. If you're not too familiar then you're in big trouble. Atmosphere was horrible and they seem to care about you at all. No regular interview questions just accounting specific or industry specific questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was an internship position and the interview process was really suffering. There were two interviewers and apparently they showed no interest on me. During the time they were asking me question, they kept silence and skipped some important points on my resume. It was a very embarrased atmosphere when I talked to them because they didn't show any response at all.
