    Sales Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jericho, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Purolator Courier (Jericho, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    There has been 2 HR directors since I was hired, so not sure what the process is now, but even for an Admin you have to go all the way through the process to the President.

    Negotiation

    I had been laid off for a year, so I wasn't negotiating.

    National Manager, Environmental Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Purolator Courier (Mississauga, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    I was brought in by a headhunter, the interview process was a normal behavioral interview where you talk about experiences, challenges, what you did and what the outcome was. This was typical for this industry and the company continued to train its managers on these kinds of behavioral interviews so I would expect that it is the same today.

    Human Resources Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pickering, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Purolator Courier (Pickering, ON (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Using an electronic booking system, I was invited to choose a time for an initial phone interview. This eliminated the phone tag that is often experienced at this stage and presented as a very sophisticated approach to acquisition. The Talent Acquisition Consultant was running late and sent an email to inform me. She was very friendly and her communication style and format made the interview a pleasant experience. We established that this role may not be the level best suited to my career however provided options for other positions with the company to review for this or future reference.

    Interview Questions

    • At this stage in the process, the questions were mostly logistical and included eligibility to work in Canada, no criminal record, able to work afternoon and evenings and salary expectations   Answer Question

    Product Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Purolator Courier (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Called for phone interview a week after applying. Then I was asked to go in for an in-person interview a week after that. I was asked mainly behavioral questions. The interviewer did not seem interested in conducting the interview and kept looking at the time. After the interview, it was mentioned that it would take 6-8 weeks to hire for the position which was very shocking for a 6 month contract position. 3 weeks after my in-person interview I had not heard back from the company. I had to email to follow up. I got a response with a generic email saying they are proceeding with another candidate. This was really unprofessional of the company to ask candidates to take time away from their jobs to come in for an interview and not have the courtesy to let them know that the position was filled. This really speaks to the culture of the company and I am glad I will not be working there.
