    Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SMART Technologies (Calgary, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    Multiple phone interviews, then an email questionnaire (editing worksheet), and finally, an in-person interview. In person interview was fine, but the lead up to the interview and the follow up afterwards was awful. No one would email me back or answer any questions. No response post-interview to tell me whether I got the job or not. When I didn't hear back, I assumed I didn't get it (obviously).

    Interview

    The interview I did was OK, recruiter was friendly, but don't have much technical knowledge, such as IF statement in Excel, she did not know.

    I heard this recent candidate phone interview experience was bad. The recruiter did not understand what the role does. Not prepared. When pulling out my resume a few minutes after phone interview had started. Very not professional.

    Interview Questions

    • very standard questions, such as why you apply this job, why you leave that job, job related knowledge. Oh well, all the recruiters I knew were all let go and quit. The currrent one I heard don't know what sales commission is. Candidates, please be prepare that SMART has very messy process.   Answer Question

    Software Test Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SMART Technologies in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was super polite and liked to hear stories from my background. The interviewer also paid attention to the non-technical parts of my CV. He was interested in knowing about what I would do in my spare time. The interview did not seem very interrogative, but it was a pure conversation that lasted for an hour or so. Though, be prepared to discuss whatever you mentioned in your CV and don't underestimate the things deemed somewhat irrelevant to the job you are applying for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMART Technologies (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    SMART uses the standard interview process, phone interview, in person interview and then fit interview with the team. It is relaxed and more of a conversation than using a set interview guide with the behavioral questions. They dig to see if you would fit with the high paced environment that is constantly changing.
