I applied online – interviewed at EPCOR.
They conducted an pre-interview via the phone prior to the formal panel interview. I understood that they did this as they wanted to let people know what they pay was (low) and individuals had the opportunity to decline the formal interview. The interview was the run of the mill, typical behavioural based questions. The interview panel did not seem like they understood the job well therefore they could not answer my questions about the job.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at EPCOR (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in April 2012.
First time I arrived for interview I was informed that they could not meet with me due to a plant emergency and that I would have to re-schedule. My first impression therefore was not a good one as a phone call from a secretary could have sufficed. The second time I came for an interview they were very apologetic which I accepted since events do come up. However, when the second person on the two person panel who was supposed to interview me arrived late I felt that this was inappropriate considering I had to re-schedule with them through no fault of my own already once. That being said, I could tell the other individual on the panel was not very happy with this behaviour. Considering I would be reporting to both of these individuals and I could already sense tension between them this to me was another "red flag". The interview was fairly straightforward and I felt very fair and transparent. I was not offered the position however due to the circumstances of the interview process and job expectations outlined I felt that this was a blessing in disguise. As someone already working in a similar position, their expectations regarding the position were unrealistic.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at EPCOR (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in February 2011.
Went through a pamphlet/booklet with generic questions and work related questions. Questions that reflected your personality,behavior. Gave you scenario questions of how you would teach someone, handle a difficult situation. Asked you to give keywords to describe your ideal colleagues...describe your previous work. Took them 3 weeks to reply since I applied....and never got a reply after. There were no HR in the room, just the manager who I would report to. This was the first interview.
