    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Toronto Hydro in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through UofT internship portal. They contacted me after about 1 month to arrange a 45-min interview at Toronto Hydro. All the questions were behavioural (the interviewers just basically followed a script), like "What do you know about Toronto Hydro and what attracts you to the position", "Have you missed any deadline and how would you have done differently to avoid that", "Tell me about a challenge you faced and how you solved it", etc. The interviewers were nice and friendly. Really fast response, about 5 hours after my interview.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you ensure health and safety in the workplace?
      Why is it important that all employees at Toronto Hydro have good customer service? (given the fact that they are a monopoly and customers have no choice)

    Human Resources Administrator Interview

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process is very thorough. I was contacted to come in for an interview and at the time of this call, it was evident that I was being prescreened. This was not a surprise - it showed they were taking me seriously. I came in a week and a half later for the interview. I was told that there would be a written portion, as well as a presentation to prepare for the interview. In actuality, I wrote a 2-part written assessment (essay and excel), made a presentation, and then had the traditional interview. It felt intense.

    Interview Questions
    • It was difficult to read the reactions of the interview panel. I understand they were following best practice but it felt very 'cold'   Answer Question
