    Interview

    Applied online through CNRL's career site in late May for the September work term (8 months). Received a phone call about three weeks later from HR Recruiter to set up an phone interview with the department manager and supervisor who I would be working with. Questions were all behavioral based.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Canadian Natural Resources.

    Interview

    Typical HR boilerplate interviews, asking the same questions that are a dozen years old. No basic courtesies offered - I was kept waiting 30 minutes, no offer of a drink or opportunity to hang up my coat. Interviews usually with >1 person, then usually a second given with higher management if you pass the first interview. Poor attempt was made to make you feel comfortable, which properly predicted that it isn't a 'kind and gentle' place to work.

    Interview Questions

    • All were pretty standard. Nothing creative or weird - pretty old school.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were not particularly open to negotiation.
