    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Waterloo in January 2015.

    The interview process was comparable to that I've experienced at for-profit large corporations. All employees acted professionally and were quick to provide a decision on employment. I would recommend this as a great job opportunity to other potential job applicants.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Well informed and rigorous without being intimidating. The interviewer had many question. Prep needed regarding the university as an institution was necessary to answer all of the questions.
