    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at George Weston (North Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied this job from company's website, and got call from HR next day. The HR is very nice, she set a fixed time with me on first call, and the telephone lasted about 30 minutes as she mentioned. She followed my resume, and asked about 20 questions, for example, "why did you quit from previous job? why you want to join in our company? why you think you are the right candidate? what is the most frustrated thing in the work? what motivate you? ", and lots of behavior questions.
