    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Calian (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online on the calian website for a job in ontario a few days after the listing went up. Got a email to set up a phone screen. It was about half an hour, recruiter explained the job, told me more about the company and asked a few questions about the resume and expectations. Ended with conversation telling me interviews are in the next two weeks and I would get a call VERY soon to set it up, even sent me a email asking for details about my education and availability for interviews. Next four weeks came and went ( during which I left two voicemails, two emails and tried to contact the company directly to no avail) its as if they dropped off the earth. Then I found out they only interviewed a single person and gave them the job despite promising multiple people interviews. How do these people have large governments contracts. They do not hold a fair interview process or do their due diligence in finding suitable employees. Just in it to get their cut of govt money. Very disappointed. Companies should not hire through them. It's been months now and never heard back
