    TSR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Shaw Communications in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Group interview requiring you to work in groups of 3 and then 6 to select an order for survival items. At first you decide within your group, and then a few items are removed and two groups are merged and the same decisions are made. Afterwards you are given three individual interviews with pretty standard, uninspired behavioral questions asking for examples of what you have done in such and such a situation.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are pretty standard behavioral questions. "Give me an example of a time when you..." I can't remember specifically, but basically it's an EASY interview. Just show up dressed well enough and articulate your point with confidence.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Be prepared to wait up to 6+ weeks for your actual start date, and don't expect any interim communication from Shaw themselves. Manpower will do their best to keep you informed, but most of the time they're just waiting to hear from Shaw.

    Leadership Development Trainer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Shaw Communications in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After three phone interviews I was flown into the headquarters in Calgary for a panel interviews. I made a presentation & 6 people interviewed me in panel & in person. That was the end of it. No contact since then, not a single email or phone call suggesting I didn't get selected. Not even reply to my emails. More so, I got charged for the hotel I stayed in when the understanding was the company would cover the cost of my travel and lodging. How bizarre.

    Delivery Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Shaw Communications in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Some of the interview questions:

    - Tell me about yourself.
    - describe a situation where a project you managed failed, reasons, and what you have done to overcome the challenges.
    - did you have to deal with difficult team member?
    - what are your strengths?
    - what is your experience in process improvement?

    I felt like one hour was not enough given the scope of the position, I always feel that the phone interviews done by the recruitment guys are waste of time if not accompanied by the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation where you had to deal with difficult team member.   Answer Question
    • Describe failed project that you managed.   Answer Question
