I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks – interviewed at Shaw Communications (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in March 2014.
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.
- 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
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.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Shaw Communications (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in September 2013.
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.
- Why do you want to move to Vancouver? It is very expensive city to live in Answer Question

The interview process was 3 fold, first there is a compute stimulation where you have to follow a stimulation of their work environment. Second is face to face interview where they ask basic questions about you, your studies, work experience, etc. The third and final round is with the supervisors at shaw, where they will asses if you are a fit for their company.
- Questions were all straight forward. One questions was tell me about a time where your goals clashed with your colleague and what did you do? Answer Question
no negotations, this was a take it or leave it thing.

There is no structure here it depends on who you meet. I had a one hour interview based on the job description. However the new manager has been know to keep candidates for 5 hours !! Even though 1hour was scheduled
I asked for a number they offered 5% lower

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Shaw Communications (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2013.
I was interviewed by this really nice head graphic designer and this other surly manager. The surly manager kept interrogating me and it was the most blatant impression that he didn't like me immediately. He was very rude.
- Let me see your portfolio, do you have any specific examples of exactly what we do? 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Shaw Communications in May 2013.
I heard about this position through an old friend who has worked for shaw for 2 years, I applied online and was contacted by a Receuiter from Manpower. I had a little mini interview over the phone, asking if I was available from Monday-Sunday 7am-11pm, what my pay expectancy was, and why I wanted to work for shaw. The call through me off guard and I felt I did terrible, but got an in person interview. When I met with the lady from Manpower, it felt a little unprofessional, she was bland.. Almost felt like she did not care. I then have my consent to a criminal record check. I was then told I would have a interview AT shaw the following Friday and would receive an email to confirm the details. Thursday afternoon.. And still no email. Once I reached out to Manpower I THEN received an email. Once I had my interview at shaw it got better. We started out with a group of 6 candidates playing games to see how we interacted with each other. I found this to be fun and a creative way to start and interview. From there we were put in separate rooms and the three interviewers took turns interviewing us with a three question compentency interview. That was intense and full of pressure, they like to dig into details. That is a good way to find people fit for the job tho. All in all the interview process was long and had its ups and downs. I was told I would be contacted by Manpower the following Monday or Tuesday with their decision. I was contacted Monday morning with a job offer.
- Felt time crunched. Interviewers tried to turn your "experience example" into a bad situation to see how you would fix it. I tried to always come back to my customer service and problem solving skills. Similar questions asked by different interviewers, so try to use different senarios per questions because they colaberate at the end.. Answer Question
Only time salary was discussed was at Manpower interview, no room for negotiation.
