    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Maxxam Analytics in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Telephone interviewed for about a few mins, onsite interview twice due to the position change. I was called in for Analyst 2 , after the first interview, they called me again, and offered me the second interview opportunity for Analyst 1. I got the offer one day after. I enjoyed the interviews, it's like talk to your friends. The HR and Department managers were very nice and welcome. The hiring process was quit prompt.

    Interview Questions
    • They were interested in my project which was total unrelated to the job position. I guess they were curious. We were off the topic for about 10 mins, discussing my project. I didn't know if they understood or not after I tried my best.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Maxxam Analytics "Job Fair" Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Calgary, AB (Canada)

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Maxxam Analytics in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Maxxam Analytics posted a "Job Fair" promotion on some LinkedIn groups.

    Most would assume a "Job Fair" is a networking event, where opportunities are showcased, and there is a chance to talk to hiring managers and employees.

    This event is NOT a job fair, but rather a very large line up for an initial interview. I was told the wait would be at least an hour and a half to talk to the first company representative.

    Competition at such an event is obviously huge. I'd think there would be better ways to approach this company, such as applying before the interview job fair is posted. Many of the positions are seasonal, for the summer months.

    I dropped of a resume, but did not wait the one and a half hours for an initial interview.

    Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Maxxam Analytics in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had gone to a workshop in March of 2009 and spoke with the HR lady. I had kept in touch with her for a few weeks as she said they would be looking for people in April/May. I sent her my CV and she contacted me and proceeded to do a phone interview. That went well and she scheduled an interview for the end of April. For the interview, there was the HR lady and a supervisor from the Analyst II instruments' department. They asked me all the typical questions...educational background, work experience, tested out my bilingual skills (it's required for the job), asked about my strengths and weaknesses, what characteristics I look for in a leader, salary expectations and told me that I would be contacted regardless if I get hired in 2 weeks. I was contacted about 2 weeks later and I had gotten the job. A friend of mine had also interviewed but he was never contacted (even though they told him they would whether he got the job or not).

    The interview is done on the 2nd floor which is a cubicle/office space environment. It's much quieter and organized. Everyone is at their desk working. The HR lady is extremely shy which is highly unusual for an HR lady. She doesn't seem to have much authority. The other supervisor is very much in your face and intimidating. So during the interview you have to deal with two very distinct personalities.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a problem you had at your previous employment and how you solved it?   Answer Question
    • How would you solve a conflict between yourself and a co-worker?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No there was no negotiation. The company tricks you into providing a salary right off the bat. So I would suggest that you ask for a higher salary but beware that they don't care about your skills so much as hiring those who ask for the lowest salary. I asked for $30,000 and they gave me $27,300 so I was screwed the moment I walked in. Ask for at least $35,000 for the amount of work you'll be doing.
