I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Westport Innovations (Vancouver, BC) in Jan 2016

Interview

The first stage included a 45-minute phone interview that was pretty much the standard format of an interview (strength, weaknesses, etc). A week later I was invited to an in-person interview with the intended direct supervisor and the HR person , and it that lasted about 40 minutes and included mainly professional questions. I felt right away that I was not a good cultural fit, but I did my best. My advice - even for non-technical roles, stay away unless you have a degree in engineering. Westport, being a very technical organization, is not a good place for peoole who do not have this kind of background, and that's what I meant by "cultural fit". They told me that they haven't decided upon the next stage - it could be another interview and maybe even an exam in MS Excel, stuff like that.
