    Water Resources Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Applied online. Invited to interview 1-2 weeks after. Went through 3 interviews 2 over the phone 1 in person. Told a decision will be made 2 weeks after but heard nothing since then. No reply for emails or phone calls. I expected a no is the answer. The interview process is okay but to be honest I felt unpleasant when I was ignored by the HR after the interview. I could have accepted other offers a lot earlier if not wait for this one. I'm wondering if anyone else had similar experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were standard, mostly give us an example type of questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ontario Power Generation (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    You do an online aptitude test. And then get selected for the interviews process. You have to go through an involved security clearance process, that may take 2 months. Usually you hear about their decision by early March.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you bounce back from a mistake you made before?
      The interview is half basic electrical questions & half behavioral questions. The interviewers looked like the people who would be mentoring.

      They were very understanding & accommodating.   Answer Question

    Engineering Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    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.
