    Junior Project Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Metrolinx (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    The whole process took over 3 months. A month after There was a written technical test, then about a month later there was a panel interview. The communication between the HR department and the actual hiring office is terrible. There is no flexibility in the process for people applying from outside the province. I paid for flights and hotels to attend both the test and the interview simply because there was no other way to participate in the process. The interviewers in the panel were surprised that I had to fly to attend to the interview, as if the HR didn't notify them at all. The whole process is a mess. DO NOT apply for this company if you do not live within driving/commuting distance.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call from HR who asked a set of basic questions. Then they called back to invite me for a panel interview. At the interview, while I was waiting, I was given a piece of paper with all their benefits etc. Once the interview started, they asked mostly behavioural questions and situational questions (How would you...., what would you do if..").

    Interview

    Standard, questions. I appplied in December 2018 got an interview in Jan 2019.

    Prescreening call asks you about salary off the bat.

    When in for an interview, hr rep and manager were there. They asked about job specific requiments , walked through the resume. Ask some behavioural questions ( what are some project mangement tasks), strengths. Then they asked about job specific requirements.

    I wrote a written exam technical in nature afterwards for 45 mins.

    After the interview they went over the salary expectations you said during the call. For me this was the tell that i didnt get the job ( I asked for the same amount in getting paid right now but i guess for their budget it was too much). The managers face did a 360 once the hr talked about expected salary. At that point i knew this wasnt going to happen.

    I guess it was good practice.
