Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SAIT Polytechnic.

Interview Details – I was phoned for an interview within a week of submitting my application. The interview was with one HR person and the hiring manager. There were a series of behaviour based interview questions where I was graded on my responses. Both interviewers took a lot of notes. If I was unable to provide an example they allowed me to carry on to the next question, but they returned to the skipped questions at the end. The interviewers were friendly and encouraging.

Then I was asked to return for an informal meeting with the Director whom I would be supporting. He asked me a lot of questions about my background and experience and how I envisioned supporting his department. It was helpful to see if we clicked.

A couple of weeks later I was contacted by HR with a verbal offer and to organize my start date.

Interview Question – Most of the questions are typical behaviour style questions, however I strongly recommend that you read the annual report to understand SAIT's business streams as well as it's ethical principles and be prepared to provide an example of how you embody those principles.   Answer Question

Instructor Interview

Instructor
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at SAIT Polytechnic in August 2012.

Interview Details – I was hired to fill a vacancy that arose quickly in a department. I was interviewed on a Monday and signing papers by Friday. The whole process was quick, yet very professional as well. I still see the people from the interview and they have remembered me which says that they paid attention during the interview. Quite pleased with the hiring and interview process.

Interview Question – There weren't many unexpected questions (I have been on a number of interviews in the past) but I did need to be able to discuss conflicts and challenges from past jobs - those can be challenging to answer.   Answer Question

Electronic Technician Interview

Electronic Technician
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at SAIT Polytechnic in January 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process was a five member panel (one HR girl). Not only were there regular interview questions, but each technical person took a turn asking you technical questions. Some were semi-difficult, although most were more straight forward and everyone was quite nice. I would definitely apply to SAIT again, as it is a great school.

Interview Question – "In a non-technical area, what do you need the most help with?"   Answer Question
