    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    It was a panel of a few people who were already working. Honestly, the process was pretty chill if anything, nothing to be really all that stressed about. First you submit your resume and whatnot, then if you get called in they ask you a few questions. Most are the basic, why do you want this job and what makes you a qualified candidate. They bring in a few people that you'll be specifically working with to participate in the interview as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    There were various steps. I met an HR the day I dropped off a resume. I was called for testing. Then called for interview. Then requested to fill out verification forms of education and send my references. I did not know until the end that the requests for all the paperwork meant they were seriously considering me. Then I was called with the offer. I accepted but HR did not know pay scale. Then HR consulted and called me back with pay offer. Then I had a start date. My new boss was away and we did not meet for some time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in March 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted by email via linkedin, set up an initial over the phone interview with the recruiter. Then a skype interview with the hiring panel. Then they flew me in to do a face to face interview. Then they asked me to do a mini exam. After a few days they called me to do a reference check. I was now given the initial offer but I think I can negotiate a better deal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

    Interview

    Interview process was very easy just face to face interview. So it was very easy to crack the interview and I got the offer letter but I didn't join because they were asking me to sign the bond of 18 months and I was supposed to do only night shift.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I emailed cover letter and CV directly to the hiring manager to consider for the summer position. The initial reply was that there was no more vacant position for the upcoming summer but s/he was going to discuss with the staff to see if they need more help for the summer. Then I was invited for a panel interview (~1hr long) which included a short tour of the work place. The interviewing process was pretty standard but the atmosphere was very relaxed and positive.

    The wage was preset based on the experience (number of years in pharmacy school). However, their rate was the best offered in Toronto area.
