    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The first step was a video interview on an online platform - a bit intimidating at first, but really not too bad. After the video interview was reviewed, I had a quick phone meeting with a member of the recruiting team to set an appointment for a live interview. The interview was with the Manager and Recruitment Manager, followed by a meeting with key stakeholders in the portfolio assigned to the role.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of British Columbia in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview with the school director, administrator, and 3 chairperson. About 9 questions were asked and I felt unprepared for all questions, probably because it was my first interview with such a big university.

    Each person asked about one to two questions. Most of the questions are behavioural questions. The school administrator was in charge of HR and therefore questions from that person were more challenging.

    Questions were both practical and behavioural.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do to keep work confidentiality if you are working in an environment that is not private?   Answer Question
