I applied in-person. I interviewed at York University

Interview

The first round comprised of 50 MCQ questions including aptitude, logical, C output questions and technical portions(Test Duration: 1 hour) :- Quantitative aptitude and Logical part was much more predominant, the questions were more intuitive and not typical paper pen/formula based. They were not very difficult but were very tricky. Suggestion: I would suggest to do practice from sites like Indiabix as it will give confidence to solve problems.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at York University (Toronto, ON) in Nov 2019

Interview

I have gone through 2 recruitment processes with York, about 5 years apart and for different types of positions. While I have been part of several unsuccessful competitions, York has one of the worst recruitment processes for a University. During my last process I was called to interview the next day, I didn't agree since a presentation was required. So they rescheduled me for two weeks later. Before the interview, they asked me to provide the presentation and told me that in addition to it, I would be going through an exam. I did the presentation, the interview and the exam in one day (about 2.5 hours in total, without counting preparation). During my interview, a secondary manager was falling asleep, which was very unprofessional. After the interview, HR called me and left me a message asking to send references, which I did immediately. After that I didn't hear back. My references weren't contacted and HR stopped answering my emails and calls. This was also my experience my prior time interviewing for them. To this date I have not received an email of rejection for either competition. My advise, a company that doesn't respect the hiring process, has other problems that heavily impact the employee experience.

Interview Questions
  • How do you balance the ethical requirements of a position like this, with high priority work?

I applied online. I interviewed at York University (Toronto, ON) in Aug 2019

Interview

- I was invited for an interview about 2 days before the interview took place via email and phone coordination (no initial screening prior to actual face to face interview) - There were 4 people each taking turns asking questions - The interview itself felt very structured: i.e each interviewer had the same piece of paper asking questions and taking notes on it (these would be the same questions asked to all interviewees- to keep the interview consistent across all those being interviewed)

Interview Questions
  • - Connection between my studies and what I'm hoping to achieve on the job - How this job will help me achieve my long term goals - Skills/ Technology related questions (i.e. "do you have experience working with this platform..) - How comfortable are you/ do you have experience working with confidential material

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at York University (North York, ON) in Mar 2019

Interview

Overall, it was a great experience however; a lengthy process. The process took 12 weeks from the application through to interview and then finally being filled in that I was not the successful candidate. The application itself was decent, a week later I heard from an HR specialist to fill out a questionnaire which took 2 hours. A week later, my answers were forward to the HR rep who then asked me in for an interview. The interview itself was 2 hours - 1 hour of questioning and another hour of a hands-on test (which required to show a few of my digital skills/thought process). After not hearing back after the interview, a month later I contacted HR to see what the status was and they were still deciding. Another month went by, and then I was asked to call where HR closed the loop and said they had gone with another applicant. Be prepared to wait awhile.

Interview Questions
  • Questions about my background, skills, how I'd be able to fulfill the job duties.
