    I applied via email over the weekend and was contacted by the primary investigator the next business day (Monday). I was scheduled for an interview that Friday. I was interviewed by the primary investigator who was extremely personable, kind and considerate throughout the interview. I was informed that I would hear from the PI early the next week if I was successful in proceeding to a second interview. I did not hear back from the PI until the following Friday. On the following Friday I received a considerate, personalized email from the PI informing me I did not get a job. The PI also wrote that he was recommending me for another role that a colleague was hiring for and gave me other great feedback.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was taken to a boardroom that had 2 other members of the team waiting for me. once I entered it didnt feel like a tensed environment. The members were pretty friendly and so the interview went by real smooth. They had seen my previous work on my website and they really liked my work so they went ahead and showed me their product that has been out in the market for quite some years now. they needed a redesign or a face lift of that product and they asked me about my thoughts on what will I do and how will I proceed. Also a few other questions on what other features or things I could bring into it from my past experiences.

    Interview

    that their interviews will be conducted using a team approach. We have also found that candidates reveal
    their strengths and weaknesses more fully when they do not know the identity of the hiring manager, or if they do
    – even if just by name – when the hiring manager does not participate directly but only observes during the group
    interview.
    The interview team should assemble approximately 15 minutes in advance of the interview to review the
    process and interview guidelines.
    When the candidate is brought into the room, team members should introduce themselves by name only,
    and, without using titles, each should describe his/her area of responsibility and how the candidate will be expected
    to interact with and contribute to the team and the company, if the candidate is selected to fill the role for which
    they are interviewing
