    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at SNC-Lavalin (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    You will likely be asked questions about your teamwork skills, your interpersonal relations, your management style or your ability to work in a diverse environment. Review the job posting again and try to anticipate other likely areas of questioning, and prepare honest and concise answers that highlight relevant aspects of your work history and life experience. Remember that there may be questions you did not anticipate: when this happens, breathe and take a moment to think through your experiences to find the best answers.

    Interview Questions

    • Closed questions that demonstrate your knowledge by requiring a specific factual answer. Open-ended questions that are broader in scope and require you to work through the answer. Situational questions that describe a hypothetical situation and ask how you would proceed in those circumstances. Behavioural questions that ask you to describe a time in your own history when you dealt with a certain situation, and to explain how you dealt with it.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    Easy, but no additional perks. Everyone is treated similarly.

    Interview

    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.
