    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ballard Power (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two people interviewed me. One of them was a manager and the other was the researcher himself. They go through your resume and ask you questions based its contents. They will also ask you a few behavioral based questions and some simple technical questions about fuel cells. It was a very casual interview.
