    Interview

    The interview process was a three step process. This included interviews with the supervisor, personnel from the business unit for support as well as the SCM manager. After interviewing, I was contacted a few days later and presented with an offer letter. The offer letter was contingent upon my passing a drug test.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Suncor.

    Interview

    All hiring was done through the career website portal, however, there were contacts within the company that were avaliable to help (especially to get resumes to them close to the interview process. Interviewers were very nice (panel of 3) and came to our school to interview. The interview started with them talking about themselves, which was interesting, and was relatively informal to start. Questions began with general ones related to resume and moved to others related to the culture of the workplace (these really showed the focus of the company).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Suncor (Calgary, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    Interview with one HR and one senior engineer. Approximately 45 mins in length and was kept very casual with back and forth discussing. The recruiter helped you with secondary questions if you found yourself stuck on a question. They asked mostly behavioural questions with a couple questions asking about previous projects you worked on. One question that I feel like cost me the position was related to upholding safety.
