Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Air Canada (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2023

Interview

Very slow process, took over a month from applying through to the final piece of the process before a potential offer of employment. The role is primarily communicating with customers via email, ironically AC’s email communication was mediocre. The final step was to complete a Comprehension Test via Teams, however none of the links given in that email worked, and I was unable to access the meeting by manually entering the information. There were no contact numbers to call, and no direct email to someone who I could advise that the links were not working. I missed the opportunity to take the assessment. I emailed the general address used to send the invite, to no response. I emailed a company address of another recruiter I had been contacted by much earlier in the process, also to no response. Other than the issues in the final step to which they give no opportunity for resolution, the process was ok, just very lengthy.

Interview Questions
  • General questions as in most interviews. Times when you went above and beyond, times when you dealt with a stressful situation. Be succinct. Follow the STAR interview process and you’re fine.

Interview

The worst interview of my career life! Everything seemed professional until they walked me in for the actual interview, assistant manager asked please sit here then the hiring manager walked in and the first thing he said sit on the other chair this is my favorite chair! Very unprofessional.

Interview Questions
  • Why are you here? I don’t like the too much jumping showing on your resume? A lot of nonsense questions
  • If you’re looking for promotion or to grow quick, then this place is not for you.
