    Web Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ryerson University (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call about 3 weeks after I submitted my resume online and was interviewed by two individuals (one in HR) - both very nice. I didn't get the job, which was disappointing but the overall experience was positive. They provided me with a personalized, post-interview update to let me know they decided to go with another candidate. I can say that, after job hunting for a few months, few HR staff display that kind of professionalism.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ryerson University (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online with a CV and cover letter. I was contacted by an HR member a few days after inviting me for an interview. It took a few days for the details to be sent to me (location, hiring committee and job details) but ultimately I received all the information. The interview itself was typical, standard questions about customer service, prioritization of tasks and communication skills. All three members of the hiring committee took notes and took turns asking questions. After the interview which took about 30 mins, I was asked to do a Microsoft word and excel test - which took just under an hour.
