    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TransCanada in September 2016.

    Interview

    I received an e-mail from their 'Recruitment Consultant, Talent Acquisition' employee stating she has reviewed my resume and wanted to schedule a phone interview and asked what a good time was for the interview. After promptly emailing back and thanking her for her request and submitting a time, I did not hear back from her until I emailed her again the day of my requested interview date asking if she needed to reschedule. The phone interview was rescheduled and felt more like an interrogation than an actual interview.

    She stated because she switches between offices, that candidates should email her for questions instead of calling. She stated she would follow up whether or not they would proceed with my candidacy. I followed up by email 11 days later and there was no response. Then I followed up 20 days later by email asking how the search was going and there was still no response.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TransCanada.

    Interview

    Applied online through a job board. Two rounds of phone interviews, each one an hour with two different project managers. The interviews took place in the late spring for a summer internship and apparently I was one of 6 or 8 chosen to conduct phone interviews out of 40 online applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly classic interview questions...Hardest question: What was a situation in which you faced a problem and you had to choose from a number of different solutions? how did you choose this option?

      Also: Make sure you convince them that you are interested in a career in this industry post-internship. That will go a long way.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TransCanada (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Quick, There was an initial phone interview followed by an in person panel interview.

Overall the interview was easy, free-flowing conversation around the job duties there were very few specific questions and they seemed more pro-forma.
