    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Ontario Securities Commission.

    Interview

    You apply online, then their HR contacts you to set up an interview over Reading Week. After the interview, they say you will hear back in 3 weeks time.

    The interview was a panel of 5 people. Appeared to be a fit interview. Spent ~10 minutes explaining their summer/articling programs, then ~10 minutes asking questions about relevant resume experience/comfort with litigation. The rest of the interview they had me ask them questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What classes do you expect to take in the future? Tell me about your experience at X company? Did you become more comfortable mooting/in court as you had more and more experience? What do you know about our JSOT program? No substantive questions about legislation.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 10+ monthsinterviewed at Ontario Securities Commission.

    Interview

    The OSC participates in the formal articling process through the Ontario law schools so you get a call on call day and schedule your interview during the allocated interview days. There was only one interview, no follow up visit or second interview. The actual interview was very formal, a panel of interviewers, formal question/answer format, very little or no chit chat, the interviewers made a lot of notes I'm assuming so that they could compare your answers with those of the other candidates. Some general questions about securities regulation and policies should be expected. The remainder of the questions were behavioural/situational (ie have you faced a challenge at your previous work and how did you handle it) and questions relating to your skills and how they will benefit you in the role that you've applied for.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Ontario Securities Commission (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Poor - I was offered the same job 3 different times - the HR Manager forgot she'd already offered it to me in the past.

    Negotiation

    Confusing - took too long to get the offer letter.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ontario Securities Commission.

    Interview

    It was a long process involving three long interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not terribly difficult and were, for the first interview, general behavioural based questions for the first interview, a bit informal with the second interview (with the expectation that you will lead with questions), and the third one is really casual (with the expectation, I suspect, to see whether you're sociable etc).   Answer Question
