Interview Details –
Phone interview was with HR. What do you know about Hydro One, electricity scene etc.
Main interview about 3 hours long. 90 min panel interview and then a presentation.
Behavioural/FIT, and technical expertise. One of the more challenging interviews I've had as it was a little exhaustive.
They seem to like to hire co-op's and intern's back, so it's good to have knowledge of the scene... I had never worked at Hydro One and didn't have much knowledge of the scene but learned about it prior to the interview.
Interview Question – All the basic stuff - when was a time you did this, performed as a team, lead as a team etc. I don't remember anything specific, was too long ago. Answer Question

Interview Details – It was a phone interview about 45 min in length. there were two people interviewing me together and i guess they put the phone on speaker so the quality was kinda bad. And both interviewer were not native speaker of English (neither am i) so sometimes we were having trouble understanding each other. Maybe cause I was applying for a student internship position, most of the interview questions were basic behavioural and technical questions, and questions about the company.
