Interview Details – A third party checked my references. I then did a 1:1 interview with a girl from HR who asked basic cookie cutter questions; ability with MS Office, strengths/ weaknesses, french/ english etc... Then a video interview with 2 managers of the team I was to be placed on. Many of the same questions. I didn't even answer the question 'what are your bad qualities'. Overall pretty smooth, all fastballs down the middle.

Interview Details – The Agency appear disorganized in its recruiting process from the time they first contacted me. The phone interview was fine and the in person interview followed a week later. It was a panel interview that was fluid and conversational. The one on one interview afterwards was more structured.
