    Software Developer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Environment Canada in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received an invite for an interview several days later (3-5 business days). Very laid back interview with two developers (likely the one(s) you would be working for), where you're asked a standardized series of questions regarding yourself, availability for the position, and your technical skill set. There are no programming questions, and instead a focus on your experience and familiarity with various technologies and platforms.

    The major focus in the interview is your skills and experience, not necessarily your academic performance; projects and work experience are more important here than your CGPA. Be prepared to explain (and have) a couple of experiences out of the classroom where you applied technologies of interest to them (.NET/Python/Java to name a few), and you've got a solid chance of getting the job.

    I received an offer a few days after that, and received my first instructions by e-mail a few days before my starting date.

    Interview Questions
    • What kind of experience (if any) do you have in programming in a .NET language?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Non-negotiable, your pay is based on the Treasury Board of Canada's Student Rates of Pay, which in and of itself is primarily based on your year and post-secondary program.
