    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Provincial Health Services Authority.

    Interview Details

    The majority of interviews are from within the company and the best way to get an interview is to join the temporary pool and then apply to internal postings.
    Many temporary workers are eventually made permanent without interview.
    If you do go to an interview, it is a board style interview with at least three people on the panel.

    Interview Questions
    • As a project coordinator the interview questions are not surprising or difficult, it depends on the department you are interviewing for.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Provincial Health Services Authority.

    Interview Details

    Applied for jobs through internal processes. Testing was done in their main clerical office and consisted of a typing test for speed and accuracy. you were given three tries to meet the minimum words per minute (60). My first go at it was 100% accuracy and 82 words per minute so they waived the other two tries. Then I answered a multiple choice test on prefixes and suffixes of medical terms. Third phase was a basic grammar test consisting of where the quotation mark would go in (two weeks' time, one week's duration). After the testing had been done, it was evaluated and then you were brought into their office for the results and whether or not you were hired, when/if you started and what shifts you preferred.

    Interview Questions
    • Asking what I did in my social life was a bit surprising. Did not understand why they needed to know what hobbies I had as it was not relevant to the work I was applying for.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    unable to negotiate anything other than hours/shift preferred. there was an information package they gave me with the basic questions answered, forms to fill out for medical, union, insurance, criminal records check, etc.
