    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in North Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seaspan Corporation (North Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Pretty basic, a quick screening phone call with HR followed up with a longer interview with the potential manager. The screening call just consisted of basic questions talking about yourself and what you know about the company. The interview was in person with the manager which was more specific to the role itself. Fairly basic, nothing too difficult or out of the ordinary.
