    Senior Counsel Interview

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

    Interview

    Asked lots of questions and even gave homework after the interview but there was no follow up. Very disappointing. The questions asked didn't seem relevant to the opportunity and seemed intended to screen me out as too senior.

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Mississauga Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two managers, questions were long back and forth nerve recking but very friendly. It took 1 month from the date of interview for me to find out if i got the job and it wasn't by email not even a phone call so beware.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at City of Mississauga Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very technical, lot of situation based question. however, if you suggest then similar situation, they want you to narrate the exact situation that they think you were in. Was a bit awkward. They were also 1/2 late to start time, which I dont appreciate. They repeatedly asked me, do you give presentations, and stressed on the word 'YOU'. Needless to say, given my experience, that should have been obvious, however I politely answered yes.
