    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is standard. There are lot of questions related to the position you applied to but they are fairly easy and there are no trick questions. There are also scenario questions, the tip is to use real life examples, they are the best. The interview is usually one on one since it is a junior position and he or she is most likely your future supervisor if you get the job. It feels like a conversation.
