    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAE (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Was greeted by the HR Generalist and brought to the Interview Room, there I meet with 2 of the team. Asked questions on my roles within the last few companies I worked with and why i wanted to join CAE. Not asked any competency based questions on my experience and the process was very disjointed.

    Waited over 4 weeks for an update on the interview outcome and am still waiting for an update at time of writing this...no email or phone call to advise of an update. Very poor process and not impressed.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CAE (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a local recruitment website and was contacted about a week later.

    My interview with the Head of Legal was straightforward and helpful. She made it very clear about expectation of the role and things I would need to consider in the role especially about the travelling that would be involved.

    After a hiatus, I was asked to return for a second interview with the head of human resources but did not take it further after considering the travelling factor.

    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Applied through campus career website. Very straight forward application, you submit a cv, cover letter, and transcript. Interview was half behavioural and half technical. But I would say they don't care much about your personality, as long as you have minimum logic and work ethic. So your chances of getting hired are proportional to your knowledge in programming. Specifically C or Fortran.
