    Production Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Questrade in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone interview scheduled by HR the next day. Other than generic questions (career goals, why QT etc. ) she asked me to list some basic Unix commands used for system monitoring. An interview was scheduled the next day with the team lead and the director of support.
    The interview was very stressful. I was interrupted all the time. I am not sure if this was an arbitrary attempt to see how candidates function under stress or a reflection of stress within the team. After quite challenging questions on Unix and system architecture they asked me about different situation I could encounter when doing support and what will be my course of actions. I was also asked basic SQL and domain questions. Financial questions: what is a GTC order, how do you lower an order priority on an exchange.
    I got an email the following week saying that they picked another candidate but I am encouraged to keep applying as they have lots of staff turnover. I am not surprised why.

    phone screening, followed by in person interview. The screening portion is important. If they dont like you on the phone, they wont ask you in for an interview. So, if you are busy when they call you, ask to be called back, instead of hurrying up the conversation.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR and done five minutes phone interview. And then met with manager for face to face interview. The whole process lasted within 2 weeks. Exceptionally efficient. However due to its online brokerage, I was required to sign several disclosure including if holding any other brokerage accounts. HR people are generally polite and professional. Two business references are required in order to get hired which is generally acceptable.
