    Overall assessment : Unprofessional, unstructured and unorganized interview

    Lack of interest in the candidate: probably the decision was already made. I couldn't understand why they invited me. They even did not have an idea about my CV.

    Interview

    I applied the maintenance position in Guelph,ON through the referral of my friend who works in there. I was interviewed by two people, one hr and one supervisor of that position. The HR's questions are very general and the supervisor asked me some questions about my working abilities and skills.
    They are very nice and friendly and I thought I perform not bad. The supervisor suggested me to conduct the second stage- a math test. But the HR rejected cause she thinks she has another interview after me. I felt a little bit bad at that moment. So one week later, I received the email from HR said they are unable to process my application at this time...

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Canadian Solar (London, ON (Canada)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Interviews were handled by a staffing agency, did a simple math test, and a simple dexterity test. Pretty standard interview for a basic position. Then the interviewer said I could have the job but I would probably be bored with it, I still accepted and it turned out the job was not anything like she said it would be.

    Key Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Munich, Bayern (Germany)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Canadian Solar (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Absoluter Chaos im Vorfeld der Terminierungen-wurde 3mal verschoben. Die HR Abteilung konnte nicht erreicht werden, kein Rückruf. Das Gespräch verlief absolut unproduktiv, da nicht vorbeitet. Es wurden Fragen gestellt, aus denen hervorging, dass mein CV nur oberflächlich bekannt war. Es fanden insgesamt 2 gespräche vor Ort statt. Die Qualität der beiden Gespräche war wie oben beschrieben-Katastrophal. Beim ersten Gespräch kam die Abteilungsleiterin ca. 30 Minuten später als angekündigt, um dann wieder nach 20 Minuten zu verschwinden. Dazwischen wurde das Unternehmen vorgestellt und erzählt wie toll alles ist.
