    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    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).

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when you had to convince someone to do something without relying on a position of power (i.e. as a supervisor), including how you did it and what the result was.   Answer Question

    In person interview. Interviewed with two engineers. Both were pretty nice. They will ask you technical questions so it is definitely good to have taken some courses that are related to the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the university's co-op system. Had an interview 3 weeks after applying. Majority of the co-op students (me as well) are asked to go through thier resume. It is benificial if you explain about your resume in detail. Questions about: why you choose mechanical engineering, favourite course, least favourite course, example of when you encountered conflict and an exaple of a time where you showed initiative for safety. Safety is really important.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    Had two interviews. First on phone with HR and a second with HR and two technical guys, which ended up being an extremely technical interview, with questions asked that are meant for a junior, while they were interviewing for a senior position. Haven't heard yet, even when they said that they would let me know either way within a certain duration. One thing I found out was the attitude of the hiring manager. Even if they give a go ahead, I have figured out that I wouldn't enjoy working under him.

    Interview Details

    Quite pleasant but understandably testing given the role and high quality company. Interviewed with three others, HR plus future line managers. Did not progress at that time due to lacking APEGA designation. Bottom line is do some homework before the interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    On campus first round interview with both behavioural and mini-case questions. I didn't expect to have cases during the interview, so I was unprepared. The case is related to their car washing business. Behavioural questions are not difficult. Overall the experience was good and two interviewers were fairly nice and friendly.

    I applied online – interviewed at Suncor.

    Interview Details

    Decent process, First interview with HR and 2 hiring managers. They went over the resume, basic behavioral interview questions concerning teamwork, strengths, weakness, where do you see yourself in 5 years and etc.... Just know every aspect of your resume inside out and be prepared to explain what you did in your past relevant work experiences. It was not that difficult of an interview.
