    Assistant Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at SNC-Lavalin in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Company called and scheduled phone interview. Interview went really well and we scheduled a in person interview for the following week. The night before the in person interview I received a message from HR stating the interview was cancelled and we would reschedule. To this point I haven't heard a think from the company. I found the company to be extremely unprofessional and I'm glad to find this out before I wasted anymore time with them.

    Management Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SNC-Lavalin.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is standard, uses Korn Ferry and other headhunters. First meeting was a phone call, then an informal interview over coffee. This was followed by a formal interview including the HR team and various members of the leadership team. Most of the discussion was around previous experience and how this would mesh with the project world. Project management is a key skill for this organization, however there is still a lot of training to get the company to a standardized or branded approach.

    Mechanical EIT Interview

    Interview Details

    The online applications system is very simple and direct. My interview was conducted over the phone after I had applied online for Mechanical EIT (Engineer in Training) positions out of school and was very much to do with finding the right person to join the company rather than to fill the job.

    Leasing Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SNC-Lavalin.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was asked to come in for an interview. The interviewer touched on my past experience and asked constructive questions regarding the facets of building administration (financial, leasing, maintenance etc. She stressed the job entailed properties that they owned and were older and tended to have more issues.I have had extensive corporate real estate administrative experience within a major corporation at a higher level and acted both as a Lessor and Lessee in different situations (buildings owned, and offices we leased) across Canada and the U.S. I reiterated my experience (extensive) and felt that I could more than handle the job. In closing I was asked my salary expectations, and that they would be in touch. I followed up, but was not hired. I believe that I was not hired because I had been out of the workforce for a time, and was perhaps over-experienced.
