Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BC Hydro (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in April 2016.

Interview

Got a phone call from HR to schedule an interview about 3 weeks after applying online for a permanent position. The interview was a panel of 3 - team lead (the hiring manager), another team lead in the same division, a team lead in a different division. There were three blocks of questions: behavioral - all the standard questions you can find on the internet, technical (to evaluate general experience), and more technical (i.e. specific to contract management). Not a great experience because i don't appreciate behavioral interviews - you need to prepare to ensure examples you pick are a) tailored to the job in question, b) truly represent you at your best and it may still leave you feel "underrepresented" depending on the set of questions selected for the interview. The interviewers were busy writing down in the HR forms, the interview felt very formal and scripted, leaving little room for exchange. They were a bit heavy on using Hydro terms which are not industry standard and may not necessarily mean what you expect. Tip : don't ever be shy to clarify the term if you are not sure, they'll be more than happy to "translate" and won't hold it against you.
The second round came 1 month later and was a general conversation, informal and completely unscripted, with the senior manager of the team. It was more of a more free flowing exchange, be prepared to lead that conversation and have plenty of questions that show curiously about the company, its culture, general direction, current issues, etc.
The offer came in 1 week after the 2nd interview. There was no negotiation - i believe Hydro does not negotiate, but they generally do beat the Vancouver market.
