    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at George Weston (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Very friendly, professional and considerate. Even though I did not get the job, they still took the time to contact me and explain why I wasn’t being put forward in the process, in a very classy way. Most companies these days don’t bother or send a generic rejection email. What a great company!
