    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at York University.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a scheduled phone interview in which the hiring manager tested me on a script we were provided with earlier. The script resembled exactly what we would ask during a call on a day to day basis.

    After that phone interview, I was told that I would hear back from them soon if I was selected. I received an email one week later stating that I had been accepted as an annual fund representative and was asked to bring in my legal documents (SIN, Payroll info etc..)

    Got an invitation for an interview through email; had one interview with my future boss - discussed my resume and the job requirements in detail. There were probably a couple of people considered for this position; however, I had prior marketing experience plus I was a marketing student which worked to my advantage (since it was a work/study position). Overall, pretty easy interview.
