    I was called by Recruiter and done phone screening. Then, she told me to take an online test which last around 30 min.,. On that online test, there were little bit behavior and technical questions. After few days, recruiter called me to appear on face to face interview with a recruiter for that technical support job. That interview was last for 45 minutes. He asked me all sorts of question including technical and my last experiences. Next day, he called me and told me I got selected for the final interview at Shaw headquarter, Edmonton. They called 12 other selected people including me for conference interview as they told me. On that conference interview, they just asked us to give our opinion as they picked up some topics. They picked some topics which were not related to any customer support service. They just told to discuss few Shaw's company related images in current market. It was lasted around one hour and half. They told us they would inform us next week by phone which got selected. They never called me !!!! I worked as 3 years customer support technician on my previous job experience. I don't know where that interview gone as the way they took my interview. Actually, group panel interview is thumps down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed 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
