    Interview

    The most ridiculous interview I have ever had. 2 rounds interview with 2 sessions each. Each session I was Interviewed by 5 people for 45 minutes. During the interview each people take his/her chance to read a qustion that they had prepared on a paper. Very unprofessional.

    That is obviously why U of Waterloo is U of Waterloo and Laurier can only be Laurier

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Wilfrid Laurier University (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviewers, one from International Office, the other a mentor herself, both friendly and easy to talk to. They took a lot of notes and had a long list of prepared questions. Most questions are typical interview questions focusing on cultural sensitivity and communication skills. They also asked about my understanding of the position and related rules. We had a pleasant conversation anyways.

All eligible applicants (based on past course completion and grades) were given a blank timetable to fill out.

Applicants with the highest scores were chosen - NO FORMAL INTERVIEW.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Wilfrid Laurier University (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online at their website. I was selected from the pool and brought in for the interview. I waited 1 week to get a reply back from the application. Then another week for the interview, and lastly another week for their decision. I interviewed with 5 people. They were fairly laid back. They tried to put you at ease and were dressed down. The questions were typical behavioural ones and standard where do you see yourself in 5 years and why are you a good fit? Most questions dealt with the job description and duties though. They had their list of questions and didn't go any further into them then what they had on their sheets. It was difficult to address all members of the interview team as we were at an oval table and it was hard to make eye contact with all members throughout an answer.
