About 20 minutes in their department, then a 40 minutes computer test following. The total time taken was about 1 hour. The interviewers were very friendly and the questions were quite clear.

    Interview

    The first step was a brief telephone interview. Then, there were two proficiency exams. One was to test Microsoft Office skills, the other to test basic reasoning and math. Both were average tests, like the ones found online. The last step was a panel interview with two managers. The questions were standard behavioural questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McGill University (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The HR person was very nice. She gave all the details related to the job. The head of department gave all the details related of the department. At the end of the intreview I really didnt have to ask questions.
    The interview was held in a vey old fashioned way, so I lost the concentration thinking: really? They still ask these questions these days?

    Interview

    Submitted the application online, then met with HR for a brief interview with the project head. The interview lasted about an hour and consisted only of basic questions. I was required to start basic training for the job before the official hire date, and then was subsequently not paid for that time.
