    Project Managemenet Intern Co-op Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hydro One (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Applied via school's career portal and via the Hydro One website right before the deadline. Sent my resume, cover letter and transcript. The cover letter was tailored to a project management position. GPA was OK around a 3 out of a 4 scale. I booked my interview via my school's career portal. It was conducted at their main office 483 Bay street (near the eaton center). I was brought in the room 5 minutes before the interview started by the Project Manager. An HR rep came shortly after; 2 people were interviewing me. Before the HR rep came, we talked about Hydro One, my interests in the position and my elligibility since there were a few reqs. When the HR rep came in, we introduced each other and they started asking the interview questions, they both had a bunch of papers from which they were asking questions from and it went pretty well. Some of the questions they asked me: -What do you see yourself doing in the future, follow up: how does this position help you. -What would your old boss say about you, how was your relationship w/ him. -What do you know about Hydro One (which we had already talked about, the HR rep wasnt there so he asked it again). -What are some of the challenges that hydro one faces. -How did you hear about this position. What are going to be some of your duties (so you know what your getting yourself into). -They seemed to be big on communication so they asked what would you do if one of your teamates didn;t finish his work on time. (to which the answer was that you would pull him aside and tell him that he should finish it next time, to where he explains to you why he didn;t fnish it and you udnerstand his side of the story. Calling your team member out in front of the others is something you should never do.) -The job was for a construction management position so he asked me what I knew about construction and the business. I answered by talking about the construction phases, 1. determine reqs 2) procurement method (design bid build, design build estimation ect) 3)construction, 4) commisionning ect. i also talked about foundations ect.
