I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at West Fraser Timber.Interview Details
Hiring manager emailed to schedule a face-to-face interview after a few weeks of submitting my application via email. One on one meeting went well for about an hour. Very casual and pleasant. Unstructured conversation about the job, company and industry. About two weeks later asked to come in for a second interview with HR manager. Very quick meeting (less than 30 minutes), during which time HR manager asked some inappropriate personal questions unrelated to my work experience or performance. Unsurprisingly, I was uncomfortable and not confident I impressed her with my responses.
It took another month before I heard back on the status of my application. Unfortunately, the rejection note seemed vague and confusing. I don't mind being rejected for a job so long as it's timely and accurate. Such courtesy is appreciated by anyone searching for work.
Soon after, the same job was reposted with a few tweaks to the job description.Interview Questions
