    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their career portal. Took approximately 2 and a half weeks for them to get back to me. They contacted me by email, asking me to phone back to them to schedule an hour-long interview two days after. The interviewer is from a technical background and is a very nice person. He began by asking me to describe things I have done in my resume before moving on to behavioural questions. This lasts for approx. 35 mins; the rest of the time was dedicated to me asking them questions.
