    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Panel interview with team leads, very standard and lots of behaviour questions, not a lot of technical question. After 2 rounds of interviews they asked for reference check, however they never contacted any. I sent two Emails just to get an update, no responses, like you never existed. Do not ask for reference list if you were not intended to call, and also why not reply Emails for just a quick update? that's just not respectful !!
