    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    The most ridiculous interview I have ever had. 2 rounds interview with 2 sessions each. Each session I was Interviewed by 5 people for 45 minutes. During the interview each people take his/her chance to read a qustion that they had prepared on a paper. Very unprofessional.

    That is obviously why U of Waterloo is U of Waterloo and Laurier can only be Laurier
