    I interviewed online - interviewed at Imperial Tobacco Canada.

    Interview Details

    For the interview after the phone interview, one of the two interviewers was late and they seemed unorganized that day for some reason. The interview itself seemed to go well but I was somewhat relieved that I didn't get called back because they didn't really seem to care.

    Accounts Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Imperial Tobacco Canada in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted for a short 10-minute pre-screen interview by an HR rep. Two days later she e-mailed to set up an in-person interview for the next week. Prior to the in-person interview I had to complete a personality inventory and test designed to measure problem-solving abilities (basically ability to recognize patterns). The e-mail stated the wrong time for the interview & I ended up having to reschedule.

    The in-person interview was conducted by two district managers and was fairly informal, they had a set list of questions that they just read directly off the paper, but their tones were casual. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. One DM gave the impression I would absolutely be called back, the other was difficult to read. I received an e-mail about 10 days later stating that I had not been selected.
