    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ontario Power Generation (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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.
