Technically, all behavioural questions. There were two person conducting my interview. HR (Jody Hopkins) and a mechanical engineer.

    Mine Operator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Suncor (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Suncor has a unique interview process for positions that are open. After sending in a resume you could be contacted for a virtual interview. This interview provides a unique way of filtering candidates that are qualified for the stage 2 face to face interview. This could be a new a direction in HR practices but it takes the 'human' factor. More likely that first interviews will be like this in the future for most companies.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Suncor (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    There were a series of basic questions designed to put the interviewee at ease, then came progressively more challenging questions came to bring out the expertise/lackthereof within. I was impressed with the structure they have developed, despite not getting the job! The process is designed to develop fit just as much as technical or analytical capability, and I do believe that their hiring process is efficient. I still plan to apply for jobs within this organization because there has been a residual positive impact from this process.
