    Junior GIS Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bell Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It had a formal testing part that took an hour and then two separate interviews. It took almost three hours. Kind of ridiculous and they didn't tell you in advance to prepare

    Interview Questions

    • They made me do mapping on the spot. Kind of difficult when I was working at a higher level of mapping and haven't done simple stuff in a while that I actually struggled and looked bad..

      They asked about past job experiences, strengths, weaknesses, skills. Pretty typical. The online testing was the most difficult part. I have a masters, post grad, and bachelors and I had alot of difficulty because I don't do well with that type of testing. I found that this method of interviewing didn't really convey who I am as a candidate. I would have been able to do the job and unfortunately the testing methods just didn't work for me as a person

    Junior SQL Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bell Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was some weird department in the Bell Mobility campus in Mississauga.

    1. Received phone call telling me about job details. Most notably that they only pay $80 for 8 hours of work.
    2. Went in anyway, toured the weirdly awesome office. They made a point of highlighting all the non-work related stuff that they did, which was a bit of a red flag in my mind.
    3. Brought into a side room with 3 others for a series of PC-based tests -- Actually, they were Macbooks with Windows installed... -- ran about 2 hours worth of tests.
    4. Brought into a separate room for interview. Met with low-level manager who gave me a presentation challenge to do based on a poster graphic and no explanation of said graphic.
    5. Made presentation 20 min later and was then told to wait for another interviewer.
    6. Older guy comes in, states many worrying things about the business, even drops the F bomb at one point, and evades my question of what his title was.
    7. No call back (but I didn't want one after the weird vibe I got)

    New Grad Bell Networks Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bell Canada (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First you do a "video interview" which seems to be a new trend these days where you don't even get the honor of talking or meeting a real person. Here you answer 7 questions which are timed. Very awkward watching yourself on the screen speak to the computer.

    After a month I got an email saying I've moved on to the next round and that I need to select 3 positions from a big list. Ok... I thought I already applied to the job. So here we go apply again and go through their website.

    It's been another month and I haven't heard anything from anyone so I'm assuming I didn't get selected.

    Very efficient process... Don't get a chance to speak to or meet a real person, just left hanging for 2 months. Would not do this again.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bell Canada (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My interview process was divided into three parts. First the recruiter screened and met with me. Second was a phone screen by a Bell employee. Third was an in person interview. There were two people in the room and two people on video conference. There were two use cases. The first one was quite simple and the second one was more complex and required a great deal of thought. I think I handled the first use case well, but for the second, I did not. I focused and got stuck on a small part and was so nervous that I failed to see the big picture.

    Incident Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bell Canada (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Initial communication was a very quick call from their HR department (sounded possibly from India) and it was cut to the chase with two questions: How comfortable are you working in a French office and salary. The call was a bit abrupt and cold. I received an email confirmation for an interview with address and all the basics. My resume reflects that I travel by public transit however you cannot get there by public transit and that I discovered in my travel to the interview. I called the hiring manager to advise of my dilemma and no problem I was five minutes away he'll come pick me up. I was already off guard. I was led to the office, introduced to the francophone staff and led to an interview room with three IT managers. It was what I call a standard interview but only one issue that kept me on edge the whole time. Only one manager made eye contact with me the whole time. There were no surprising questions however I felt very intimidated. It was a rough interview because I could not draw the attention of two of the managers. The interview was conducted entirely in French. The English was skipped because of my obvious anglo accent. I never received any feedback what so ever on the interview and followed up with both an email and a phone call with nobody wanting to give me feedback.

    Applied and received a call 2 weeks later for a phone interview with the HR person, Hiring Manager and Tech person. I was told it would be a standard HR interview.
