    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ontario Power Generation in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through OPG website. Got a call a couple of weeks later asking for a phone interview. Interview was 5-6 behavioral questions. They gave a situation and you had to provide an answer. Taylor your answers towards power generation. I answered many of the questions I got asked by giving examples of a school project I worked on related to a power plant system design.

    They said they would contact me in a few weeks with a decision. They called me the a week later and offered me the position. Currently going through security clearance which takes about 3-5 weeks to process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ontario Power Generation in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Standard 45 minute interview, they asked six behavioral questions. The interviewers were extremely polite and made the entire interview a pleasant process. They kept asking how certain actions of others made me feel while I was giving responses which I found a little awkward. Other than that there is nothing significant worth noting.
