    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Intact (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer first introduced the details of the position, and then asked some behaviour questions and then some technical questions, it was conducted by two people. The overall process is very smooth and the interviewers are very funny.

    Human Resources Role Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Intact (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that last about 30 min. One week later they sent me an e-mail letting me know that I wasn't retained for the interview stage. They didn't explain why. 1 week after receiving this e-mail they contacted me to see if I was still available and interested by the role. They finally reviewed their criteria and decided that they wanted to meet me ( after letting me know that I wasn't a good fit for the role ). I found it odd but I was interested by the role so I decided to go and meet them in person. They day after the interview they asked me to come for a final interview a week later. The final interview went well however a few days later they called me to let me know that they decided not to move forward with me because I didn't have the right profile for the role. They seem to be very flip flopping in their decision process.

    Junior Programmer-analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intact.

    Interview

    The position I applied for was supposely available in Montreal. It was not the case because at the end of the process they told me that I would need to travel 1-2 days per week to St-Hyacinthe. Too far for me and it was not written on the job description. HR was all mixed up with too much people involved in the recruiting process.

    At the first interview, incompetent IT manager who knows almost nothing about technology (don't know what is an Android app or ERP system).

    The 2 last managers who interviewed me were more competent, but they had too much attitude stating they are the best in IT and that they will compete Google. I really think they are far. Although, the interview with the HR consultant was better.

    Reasons for Declining

    Too far and too much attitude stating they are the next Google in IT.
