Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Ontario Power Generation (Hamilton, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.

Interview

The hiring process began with applying online for a 12 month engineering internship. Successful candidates were called for an interview, prior they ask for some identification (ie scanned license, passport, birth certificate). The interviewing processs was one round with six set questions asked to every candidate. After a successful interview you are offered a job, which will be the specific area you will work in over your internship.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ontario Power Generation.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process was relatively straightforward. They'll notify you by phone or email for an interview if they are interested. The details will be provided there. The interview process involved doing a security clearance and answering some behavioural questions during a 1 hour interview. Before the 1 hour interview when you first check in, there are some current interns and staff members to talk to you in a group with other interviewees about the company and their work experience. Overall, it was very comforting and a straightforward process.
