    Bilingual interview with 3 people, including my manager. Took place in the Ottawa location and lasted approximately 30 minutes, with all 3 interviewers asking questions. Most of the questions seemed to come from a general sheet.

    • Lots of questions relative to the position requirements. How much experience I had doing those specific things. Very little coverage of past positions, except how they directly related to this position.   Answer Question

    Risk Management Specialist Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Ottawa (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and a month and a half later recieved a request for phone interview.
    The phone interview lasted 15 minutes and was essentially just to make sure I was bilingual.

    One week later I was asked to interview in person at the downtown office. A committee of 3 performed the interview and it lasted 1h 15 minutes which is exactly what they plan for.

    13 questions, with sub questions are asked. You are allowed to write the question down and take your time before responding.

    Most of the questions were to test knowledge on regulations and were situational. I.e. the University is planning this process - what are your recommendations, what is the process and what regulations would apply.

    This was probably the most difficult interview I have ever had, great questions though - made to reflect real life situations.

    I will not write the actual interview questions as they worked hard to build them and I wouldn't want them to have to restart the process.
