    There was an online assessment beforehand, with word, math, interest and personality questions. Then I was interviewed by an HR rep and the manager of the department for this position. They asked a lot of behavioral and situation questions: describe the situation, what did you do, what was the result. After the interview there was a written technical test, about some science principles and techniques, and why QC is important.

    EHS Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nordion (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process involved several interviews, and IQ test, a situational written test that had to be completed within an hour. It was quite arduous which I was not used to. And the HR specialist really took her time to get to know me which I am glad she did. The process is so intensive as they do not only want to ensure that you are qualified for the job, but also that you are a good fit within the organization. Judging by how well everyone gets along, I can tell that this process is quite effective.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordion (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Initially wrote a test to determine the depth of my knowledge as it applies to the position. Panel interview - started out with H.R. representative and hiring manager. Asked probing question about practical experience and went on to behavioral questions. Got the sense that they really want to find someone who will not only fit the job but fit the team/culture. After that, met with another team of two interviewers - people position works with on a daily basis.
