    Firstly, i got a phone interview about some general questions : my experiences, my degree. Next week, i had a video interview in their office with managers in Toronto. They are very nice and friendly. Interview was pretty relax, there are no technical question. That continue for about half an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • ALL QUESTIONS were most difficult and unexpected. They are quite not sure about how to prepare interview questions they will be same if you are experienced junior or intermediate. They want everyone to know all stuff in depth. IF you successfully answer one question another question in depth of that will be ready until you give up. 50% questions will be out of requirements. not sure what they want out of candidate but they want candidate to know everything.   1 Answer

    Software Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thales (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied as a new grad online through their career website. Was contacted by phone to schedule an interview approx. 2-3 weeks after applying. Interviewed by 3 managers and the HR rep who is in contact with you. 1 of the managers seemed really enthusiastic and asked questions about your resume/relevant projects, while the other two seemed distant. The HR rep asks some pretty basic behavioral questions and the managers gave some technical questions on a printed paper.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral: Give an example of when you worked with a team and had conflict. Tell us what you know about the company. What are some of your strengths and weaknesses.

      Technical: Probably some tricky embedded C programming questions pulled from the web. Also some really bad control systems questions (i.e. What is a control system?)
