    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at TransCanada (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A brief interview with not very friendly lawyers. It was a panel interview and I guess they were doing good cop/bad cop, because one of them was quite aggressive. They mainly asked behavioral questions and quickly scanned my resume.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TransCanada (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing it on their website and through school job postings.
    I was called in for interview. Cannot recall some screening may have happened over the phone. I had 1 round of the interview itself, with manager and previous co-op student.
    It was in the building in downtown and they brought me to a room on a upper level.
    Walls seemed thin so suggested to be mindful of volume.
    They both went back and forth asking the questions. Both wrote notes as I spoke to answer given question.

    Overall the interview went well.

After the interview the HR guy sent me an email with his contact number.

    20 days later I sent an email asking about the job position status, he answered me "I'm going to call you next week to let you know about the job position status". After that email I didn't received any notification.

    Finally, I tried to call him for asking again the job status but he wasn't availabe. I wasn't called again.
