    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Queen's University in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Sending a CV to the potential supervisor or both after contacting to him/her by email. As everyone knows, it is very hard to get replies from professors so that you might need to ask your boss to contact to the professor otherwise they just ignore your email. After getting the response, you'll have an interview over Skype.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Queen's University in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty straight forward. I had my in person interview followed by my group interview on the same day. There were two interviewers and they asked basic interview questions related to working in residence (e.g. describe a time where you were inclusive of others).

    The group interview was interesting. Essentially, they're looking to see how you interact with others and how you are able to communicate your views/opinions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Queen's University in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Sent emails to professors that you are interested in working with. Then I had phone interviews with them, and email conversations as well, followed by the visit. Finally, we need to think about whether or not to take this position after the visit, and whether professors were also happy to take you. If yes, then you are hired.

    IT Testing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingston, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Queen's University in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Responded to Workoplis posting. Interview was scheduled. Interviewed with a group of people from various university departments and an external project manager. At the start of the interview the external project manager stated he did not feel this position was necessary which seemed strange. The other people interviewing asked relevant questions, listened to my answers and would ask follow-up questions as they saw fit. Their answers to my questions were polite and well thought out. With the exception of the external project manager's statement the tone of the interview was professional and polite while not being not overly formal.

    I was contacted two weeks later and told the other candidate got the job. The reasons were strange as they felt I was more of a testing person and not a QA person, yet the job posting and questions were geared to the testing aspects of the position and QA was not mentioned once. I suspect an internal candidate got the job and I was used as a filler candidate to make the recruitment process seem fair.
