    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at City of Ottawa.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a letter with instructions for where to go to attend a city wide skills screening (hundreds of people). The screening was for skills tested for in the NLS exam. After that, I received a phone call to attend a site specific skills screening (20 or so people) for the pool that where I would potentially work if I were to be hired. Within a week I received a phone call to set up an interview. The interview was with a panel of 3 people.
