    Computer Science Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Canada Post (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online.
    Got an email asking to schedule an exam to test my english and french skills.
    After a week, got a phone call telling me I've passed it, and to schedule the actual interview.
    The interview was with the Manager of the department, and one Engineer.
    Simple technical questions, a lot of behavioral questions. They allowed me to think of my answers first which I found pretty nice.

    Process took a little bit more than a month.

    CITY LETTER CARRIER Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Dinosaur company. Once in person they use the STAR type interview (just Google up about it).
    This has to be the coldest, most impersonal and subversive type of interview out there. Don't expect a human contact during this process. Tells a lot about this company, culture and people that get hired. Basically, there is no way to pass this interview while being honest. Makes me think that in fact many are hired by knowing someone inside the company. Why do they want to know how did I solve this or that situation? Who ever really 'solves' situations?

    Internship Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Canada Post (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Had to use the STAR method for 2 or 3 questions and had generic questions about your skill level in each section. The thing I hated the most was that interviewer promised to give me feedback on how to improve for interviews and I never got even a reply that I did not get the position. I found that extremely rude.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Canada Post.

    Interview

    Was asked to come in for an interview with HR and hiring manager. It was very structured. After the initial interview, I was invited for a second round. Overall, both were very pleasant but it felt so structured that it was difficult to judge "fit".

    • First round - all behavioural questions that aligned with their core values.
      Second round - more focused on resume and responsibilities of position.   Answer Question
