    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mountain Equipment Co-op in October 2018.

    Interviewer was impersonal & seemed as though he didn't want to be there. I followed up by sending references and thanking him for the interview and got no response - very unprofessional. Has left me with a terrible impression of MEC.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mountain Equipment Co-op (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    One phone interview
    One skills test on the computer with how you respond to customer service questions.
    One in person interview with 2 people (they throw A LOT of questions at you and did not inform me I would be interviewed by two people, 1 person was from over the phone)
    One criminal record check and 1 credit check, you are asked to bring 2 pieces of ID to the interview (This is the only company I have known to do this from my interview experiences)
    Tour of the new MEC headquarters (and yes, it's beautiful)

    Interview Questions

    • From what I remember (paraphrased):
      Tell me of a time time you had to make a tough call and did you regret it?
      What are you most proud of.
      Tell me something new you've learned recently.
      Tell me about your last adventure.
      A customer wants to re-order a pair of their favourite MEC pants from a decade ago, but they are no longer available, what do you tell them?
      Found interviewers to be dressed VERY casual, but very serious during the interview process, not conversational and relaxed like the over the phone experience.
      Wage offer at the time was $15 an hour.
      Was called back and told it was a tough decision, I asked if there was any feedback they could provide to improve skill set etc (noting I did not want to put them on the spot), the interviewer said they would look at their notes; I never heard back.   Answer Question
