Humber College Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Help Desk Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Humber College.
Interview Details – If you get selected from the countless of resumes submitted to the recruiter, you will be brought in for an interview, as the recruiter makes the judgement call on who to present. You get the interview and make an impression, then you will be presented with IT test...Somewhat easy if you have knowledge or experience. If you pass the interview and test, you will have a job!...it's only temporary and will not advance you to get full time position, as there are others waiting for a chance that are working there as contracts but at least they are steady contracts and they have been there for years!
Interview Question – Please describe a situation when an irate user came to you and how did you handle it? View Answer
Negotiation Details – You negotiate with the recruiter and agree on a wage. Make sure you incorporate, Vacation time not given to contracts, Overtime pay (Which is time and half) they usually charge you the same rate, Stat Holiday pay and Other benefits that one can think of. This will increase your negotiation powers when dealing with recruiters, as they will make the money either way if you do not demand it!
