    Interview Details

    The hiring process begins with the completion of an online application. I was contacted via email one month after application and was invited for a telephone screening interview a month later.

    The screening interview lasted 12 minutes. Although I have not yet advanced to the next stage, I was told I would be contacted in 1 or 2 weeks regarding the status of my application. If still found to be competitive, I would be invited to an in-person interview. If approved, I would attend a 3-day training course before being entered on the job roster for deployment. I was told the deployment process takes 6-9 months on average.

    It was very interesting process, other than the usual interview (via skype) there was also a recruitment center which is a day long workshop to explore one's ability to interact with others and to see if they are team players. I found it very useful in the way that it provided me with some self awareness.
