    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at City of Calgary in January 2010.

    Interview

    Behavioural interview - City of calgary posts the questions online check out their website.
    Also, be prepared to present a game (like soccer or card game) to show you can work with kids and know how to play games. I suggest just going online and picking camp games.

    Sometimes they do a panel interview, the key is knowing how to work with people.

    Interview Questions

    • IF you could be an animal what animal would it be and why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No real room for negotiation
