    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Guelph (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Panel of 2 managers with basic interview questions. Strengths, Weaknesses, instances where you have shown leadership, solved problem etc. HR hiring manager is not usually present for summer contract position interviews. Was not interviewed for the summers afterwards that I worked in the same position.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were asked to do something that you did not want to do how would you deal with it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I started well above minimum wage, so the negotiation process did not occur
