    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to provide 2 online written samples and review how I optimized the content for search.   Answer Question

    Research Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ryerson University (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview for the research position was very laid back. There were not many technical questions at all, but rather questions that gauged your interest in the subject. You should know in good detail what it is you want to research in your field, as the researcher may have many projects going on and would like to see where you would fit best.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ryerson University (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    I don't think this is done all the time, but a recruiter was hired to find an external candidate back when I was hired. I was interviewed by him and completed several tests for him. I then met the supervisor of the job privately, one-on-one; again, I don't think this is usual procedure, but she really wanted to be certain of a good "fit" between herself and the candidate due to the close working relationship. Then I had a panel interview: I think there were 5 people present asking me questions.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a long time ago, but one thing I do remember is the Supervisor of the position asking me who I'd help first: a student, an instructor, or herself as my boss. I answered "student" which was incorrect for her; my first priority was to be my boss! Other questions were behavioural-type interview questions.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ryerson University (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    There was a panel interview with two people and HR consultant. The two people were management from the team I assist. Computer skill testing including the usual Microsoft Office testing done at temp agencies. There was also a standard typing test. I would recommend knowing all your key answers to these. I would also review any and all available online documentation for the department you are interviewing with.
