Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Canada Post (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in February 2017.

Interview

I applied online and then they sent their General Aptitude Test which took an hour. After that, they offered me an interview. The questions included why do you want to work for Canada Post? how will your other work experiences help you with this job? What would you do if you had a conflict with a coworker? And some scenario questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Canada Post (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    After completing the online test I went for an interview, I was told I passed the interview on the spot. The next step was to get a background check and a physical test. This is where the experience went down hill. They told me to email and make an appointment to get my fingers prints taken for the background check. Once I got home I emailed asking if I could set something up for the next day... No reply to the email, The next morning I called, no answer, called again, no answer. Left a message to try and set up an appointment to get my finger prints taken.

    I then went to my appointment for the physical portion of the interview which I'm 100% sure I passed. after that I finally got in contact with someone to get my finger prints taken for the background check. this whole process was done at the end of November. I emailed mid December to see what was going on and they said they were still waiting on the background check, emailed again in the new year, still waiting on the background check. As of writing this I have not heard anything from them. I have taken another job which also required a background check (this took 3 days).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Canada Post (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    2 people there during the interviewing process. 1 was taking notes during the interview. Made me feel comfortable and relaxed beforehand. Not really difficult to answer these questions, but better for you to be a little prepared by studying up on the company. Also practice your answers with a friend so that you sound polished and can deliver your answer in a reasonable time......check questions from a interview guide!

    Interview

    The easiest interview I've ever had. They are desperate for employees because of serious retention problems due to the excessive workload. The interviewer basically just checked to see if I wasn't a complete nutjob and I was hired.
