    Business Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Petro-Canada in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Fairly informal interview with HR personnel and Business team manager consisting of mostly behavioral questions. The people came across as friendly but also fairly uninterested in what I was saying and more in taking down notes. The business team manager was very happy when I asked questions about the company and his work tenure there. I recommend asking personal questions during the interview closure and doing prep on more how their analytical knowledge is more superior than the others'. Pretty stress-free overall.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Petro-Canada in March 2008.

    Interview Details

    Fairly behavioral, be prepared, and know your role at the company, and what will be required of you and try to tie in any previous experience. Brush up on the Calgary Flames, we chatted informally about them and their prospects for a while.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Know what you are worth, and what others at the same position with the same experience are getting. We discussed the salary reasonably. I didn't counter with an outrageous offer, but was able to get a little more in salary than their initial offer.

    They were also more flexible with the bonus, then the salary. Although my starting salary was lower than my previous job, with my signing bonus and performance bonus, I made a lot more money. Plus, the following year my salary increased to my previous salary, and my performance bonus was only slightly cut, so in the end the I definitely received significant increase in compensation.
