    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Atomic Energy of Canada (Pembroke, ON (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Relatively long and detailed phone interview (about 45 minutes) with behavioural questions. Got invited for in-person interview. Interview was mostly technical, and went over your work background. I was selected to go on the tour the next day, however we then found out that there were three tours total, so about 60 people interviewing for 10 positions. The email was poorly worded, they said if you were successful in your interview, you would go on a site tour (so you've got the job is what was implied). This was frustrating as the correspondence was misleading and the tour was very interesting, so they get your hopes up for a long shot essentially.
