    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Western Ontario (London, ON (Canada)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received email requesting interview and link to doodle poll to fill in times that I was available. Parking for interviews at western can be a bit tricky and pricey. The parking lot that was closest to interview location was full so I paid and waited hoping someone would return to their car before I was late for the interview. Luckily someone did and I wasn't late!
    Interview was very straight forward panel interview including HR rep, hiring manager and additional person from the department. Included questions about resume, scenario, and behavioral questions.
