    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Couche-Tard (Laval, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied through a placement agency
    Interview 1&2: with agency representative (phone and in person); tests: French, English, Excel, Word, Powerpoint
    Interview 3: by phone with HR junior at company (3 calls)
    Interview 4: with HR representative (not responsible of hiring), HR responsible on vacation
    Interview lasted 1h20, average of +30 questions, very formal and "corporate", I could tell that the rep was doing interview back to back for all different positions; I think too many to be able to assess an individual.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the biggest mistake you made that created a major issue? I don't know but who would actually answer that? My answer was to provide information about an error made, how it happened, how it was handled and resolved.

      Way too many questions, not enough "human" exchange especially when the reason of not being selected for an interview with actual person responsible for recruiting for this particular position whom I never met was "incompatible" personality.
