    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cameco in August 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with HR and 3 others. Typical review of qualifications and experience. As per the norm very few direct answers to my questions, they followed the script of vagueness and using pre-packaged responses.
    One complaint that I have is that they did not follow their own timeline for getting back to me. They did inform me that I was not the successful candidate, which is nice.
