    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CareGuide (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The overall interview was a combination of behavioral and growth metric questions. Throughout the interview, I was able to speak to several different members of the team + the CEO. Their crew is top notch - super inclusive, very easy to talk to, and are extremely driven. The team was extremely welcoming and did a great job at ensuring that I had all the information I needed to base my decision.

    One particular stand out is CareGuide's commitment to community and professional growth. Their team made it very clear that their goal is to help build a strong team with even stronger passions and aspirations. Their company culture pushed employees to challenge themselves and strive to gain experience that will help them become better entrepreneurs in the future.
