Summer Student Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Government of Canada in April 2010.

Interview Details – Three interviewers were in the panel. Most of the questions were behavioural. Only one technical.
Interview started with simple questions like whether I am eligible to work in Canada, whether I would return to school after the summer job. And then there were situational questions:
1) When was the last time you went beyond the call of duty?
2) How did you deal with a stressful time?

Interview Questions

  • Have you given any presentations? How did you prepare for it?   Answer Question
  • Was there a situation when you suggested better ideas to your supervisor?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No.
