Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ontario Power Generation in January 2015.

Interview

Two gentlemen spoke with me on the phone, taking turns asking me behavioural based questions. Last question was whether or not I had questions myself and that was it! Very straightforward and to the point interview. Got a call 1 month after the phone interview offering me the position. Security clearance after the fact took 1.5 months to complete as they are very thorough.
