I applied online. I interviewed at TransCanada.
Applied online through a job board. Two rounds of phone interviews, each one an hour with two different project managers. The interviews took place in the late spring for a summer internship and apparently I was one of 6 or 8 chosen to conduct phone interviews out of 40 online applicants.
- Mostly classic interview questions...Hardest question: What was a situation in which you faced a problem and you had to choose from a number of different solutions? how did you choose this option? Also: Make sure you convince them that you are interested in a career in this industry post-internship. That will go a long way. Answer Question

After I applied online in the end of November (early in December), I got call in March. The manager just asked me if I would like to work in New York, if I have place there to stay. After call, they send me offer letter and contract in a week.

First needed to fill in online application. Interviews consisted of meeting with three person team. I had two interviews for the position. Most questions were exploratory or behavioral questions. Best to use the STAR method and answer questions honestly. Interviewers were very professional. Process lasted a few weeks between each session.
- Had me work on a problem set applicable to the job and then review it with them. Was difficult as the information was incomplete. They wanted to see how you thought through a problem. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TransCanada (Omaha, NE) in March 2013.
It started with a phone interview with an internal recruiter. We talked for about an hour about my background and the position. She said that she was pretty sure they wanted to move on to the next step, but would confirm via email in a few days. Two days later we scheduled a trip to fly to Omaha to interview. The handled the accommodations relatively smoothly. The onsite interview itself was a little different. It was scheduled at 5:30pm at the office. Once in the interview room, I sat on one side of the table, across from the HR Manager and two other Senior Managers. I tend to be very comfortable in interviews, but I'd never seen this type of set up before. They each had a packet (about 7 pages) of questions, that they just read off to me, and would write my responses as I spoke. Some of the questions were repetitive and were so vague that their correspondence came across as pretty robotic. The interview lasted for about 75 minutes.
- The questions weren't that bad or difficult, but be prepared for the 3 on 1 as mentioned above. Answer Question

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TransCanada (Morris, IL) in February 2010.
Was contacted a few days before the scheduled dates for the interview to set up a time. Was offered to interview at the job location or over the phone. The interview questions were partially based on experience performing the jobs duties and the rest were behavioral type questions requiring you to explain a time when you were in a specific situation and how you reacted and what the outcome was. The interview was approximately one hour in length and there were five individuals evaluating me.
- Describe your experience in performing pipeline patrols. Answer Question

The interview ran smoothly, and there was a Level 4 technician that interviewed me alongside a manager. The interview process was easy and although I was nervous, both the technician and the manager made me feel comfortable and the environment in which the interview took place was comfortable as well.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TransCanada (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in March 2015.
I applied online for a bunch of engineering intern positions. They selected me for one of them. Interview was easy no hard questions. Four of them including an engineer and the project manager. What do you know about TransCanada, the position and other similar questions. Only one technical question which I found it easy: What should you consider when you design a gas pipline, and when you design an oil pipeline? They called after two weeks and said that the position was cancelled. Positive experience but they wasted my time if they had to cancel the position.
- What should you consider when you design a gas pipline, and when you design an oil pipeline? Answer Question
