Human Resources Intern Interview

Human Resources Intern
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I applied online and interviewed at IMAX.

Interview Details – Applied through their website, then had a phone interview, the next day received an email to schedule an in person interview the following week. Was told it was going to take 2-3 weeks to find out about the in person interview so it went a lot quicker than expected.

Interview Question – If 2 Human Resources Business Partners requested you to have a task finished for them the same day how would you balance the request from them?   Answer Question

3) Senior Vice President Interview

- Tell us what you think IMAX does exactly?

- Asked a few questions on my interests.

Interview Question – What can IMAX do to be innovative? They want a specific example, along with steps on how you would pursue this strategy. Thought process is similar to product development case, or market entry case.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I got offered 3rd round interview with Senior Vice President; however, I declined as I received an offer from a different company.
