    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at George Weston (North Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied this job from company's website, and got call from HR next day. The HR is very nice, she set a fixed time with me on first call, and the telephone lasted about 30 minutes as she mentioned. She followed my resume, and asked about 20 questions, for example, "why did you quit from previous job? why you want to join in our company? why you think you are the right candidate? what is the most frustrated thing in the work? what motivate you? ", and lots of behavior questions.

    Legal Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at George Weston (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted to have a telephone interview by the Human Resources Coordinator and that was straight forward. She set up an interview for later that week in which I was to meet her and one of the lawyers. Instead I met her, 3 lawyers and one law clerk. After discussing the job with one lawyer HR began to ask many standard behavioral questions. At one point while answering I looked over at one of the lawyers and to my surprise he was leaning back in his chair, EYES CLOSED, with his hands folded on top of his head. HR continued to ask behavioral questions until I met the senior lawyer.

    The most senior lawyer didn't ask me any questions about my qualifications but told me how he would describe himself before asking me how I would describe myself. He also took the time to ask where the Loblaws locations were in my neighbourhood. He then left the room without a handshake or backward glance while I said goodbye to him.

    I sent a thank you note and a few days later, without acknowledging the note or saying thank you to me, HR asked for my references and then called them. I contacted her a few weeks later to find out about the status of my application and she said they were still interviewing. The job ad is still up two months later so I'm not sure why she was in such a hurry to check my references.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at George Weston.

    Interview

    There are two stages to the interview process, with the human resource then the hiring manager who you will work with. Checked with company after 3 weeks on interview process and got a generic email that they were moving on with other applicants instead.
