    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Ballard Power (Delta, BC (Canada)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied by sending my resume to HR representative on LinkedIn. After about two weeks, the team leader contacted me to have a phone interview. In the phone interview he asked me to explain in more detail my background, education and skills by following my resume. He asked about how each of those experiences would contribute to the position.
    After two more weeks I was contacted for an in-person interview at their offices. In this opportunity, the team leader and two other people from the technical team were present. we went through my resume more in detail this time and asked me specific technical questions about the processes and systems I used to design. Besides, he asked me to describe how a fuel cell works.
    I had no news from them after that interview and contacted the team leader after a month, who answered that same day saying that I'd demonstrated good technical knowledge and skills, although they were looking for someone with a background closer to their processes.
