    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WorkSafeBC.

    Interview

    It was a four-hour technical test which evaluates analyzing and reporting skills and working with Microsoft Excel, SQL, and Crystal Report. Excel test was about working with charts and formula, SQL test was about writing queries and in Crystal report test, I was given a report and asked to make the same report.

    Interview Questions

    • In SQL part, they provided me with a big schema which was too time consuming to understand the relations and asked me to write couple of queries. The instruction was not clear and I wasted my time, However after that I figured out it was not needed as the name of needed tables were mentioned.   Answer Question

I don't know what they want to assess ,but there were many stupid and repetitive questions. Lots of figures to compare like IQ test.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at WorkSafeBC.

    Interview

    Resumes are screened by a computerized process, so there has to be a minimum number of 'hits' in the resume of key words. Read the job description carefully and be sure to include as many words or terms as possible. Once it passes the robot screener, you're almost guaranteed a contact if the qualifications are met. Next step is a KSA(knowledge, skills, abilities) test which is quite straight forward. This process includes a basic written and oral communication assessment. The final step is a behavioural interview and reference check. They do check references, so make sure you list valid, accessible references on the resume.

    Interview Questions

    • With your qualifications and experience, you could be working in private industry for double the salary offered here. Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little room for wage negotiation (unionized postion).
