    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BC Hydro (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Starts with a pre-screen phone interview with HR, then a second in-person interview. The in-person interview had two parts; meeting and discussing with the manager that will hire you, and a technical test to make sure I had the skills to fulfill the position. HR is incredibly helpful with keeping you informed of the status of your interview or where the process is at.
