    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cossette Communication (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the same day inviting me to a group interview next week.

    There were about 12-15 candidates present for the group interview. The interview took place in a small boardroom. The agenda for the group interview:

    - HR and Director started off by talking about the role and the company ( There were two more senior level employees present at the beginning of the introduction but they didn't seem interested at all and were quite quick to leave)

    - We were asked to one by one introduce ourselves and talk about why we are interested in the job

    - A short ice breaker question round (e.g. Had a pick a card with an ice breaker question e.g. Which superhero would you be and why?)

    - Question for the interviewers

    - Asked to complete an analytical assessment (1 hour, paper test, need a calculator, ratios, proportions, percentages, addition, subtraction, balancing, grammar test)

    I received an email about 10 days later telling me that I didn't make it to the next round.

    The energy in the places was quite positive and I would have loved to work at Cossette but Alas!

    Interview Questions

    • The analytical assessment was tougher than I had anticipated. Make sure you practice GMAT like maths questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cossette Communication (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    - had a connection/ good guy who had a friend working for the firm. referred me and the team was looking for someone in the finance group
    - interview process was pretty fast; 1st day met the HOD: he explained the necessity of the role and my key responsibilities; I explained my prior roles and how do i fit in; i have some extra-curricular activities related to music and movies so that also helped. I made some market research via Bloomberg and I did a presentation of the materials. He liked it :)
    - the following day I met 3 of the team members; they explained the role and I mentioned about my prior experience and education; overall the conversation went well.
    - the final round was a business case study which happened over 2 hours. the interviewer was sitting with me and we were discussing the case step-by-step and I was giving my feedback. the case was amazing and I showed real interest to get to the solutions; I said out loudly my thought process rather just saying the answer; always explain how you think in a case cause they dont really care about the answer; they wanna know how you think and how you can handle a situation;
    - after i came home I kinda thought about the case and tried to remember the numbers; I did the case again in Excel and I sent it to her; she was impressed to see that as I didnt take any materials home and just depended on my memory
