    Administration Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS (Canada)).

    Interview

    The interview process started well. However, as the process moved forward, the Committee was rather cold, overly formal for the position being applied for, and acted slightly haughty. I found the process was like a bad rip-off of something from The Apprentince, and no one interviewing me really understood the questions they were asking me. They also essentially asked me the same question in 5 different ways. Overall the Committee seemed disinterested, unpersonable, and amateur.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Halifax, NS (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS (Canada)).

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty informal. The team lead was looking for students to hire for a particular job, and did a fair amount of networking to figure out who would be best. He was committed to finding someone right for the position rather than filling headcount. We met over coffee, and talked about what needed to be done, and how my skills and experience would play into that. We also talked about whether and when I'd be available, and agreed to talk again closer to that time. It was clear that I was a good fit for the role and vice versa, so it was a natural choice.

    Interview Questions

    • Whether I had experience with specific technologies or products that might be important in the role.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was pretty clear that the offer wasn't negotiable because of the way it was funded/structured. Cash compensation was low, but it was a fun gig, and offered an opportunity for networking.
