    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Great Canadian Gaming.

    Interview

    HR called and did a first screening, easily went into scheduling an in-person interview the same week. HR said that he was going to email me the details including the address, who I was going to be interviewed by, and also his contact information incase I had questions or would like to change the time. I never got that email, called twice and left voicemails. Even called the day before and didn't get a reply or a call from him.

    Got to the casino, security had to check my ID before I got in. They were rude, and because HR didn't send me an email with the details, I wasn't sure who I was interviewing with other than the department. I had a sheet with notes that I took during the HR call, I referred to that. Security just took it out of my hand and called customer service. Was very rude.

    Once I got to customer service, I had to fill out a paper application form, which all of the information that I needed to fill was already in the online application. I found it odd to re-do it again in writing. Good thing I had a paper copy of my resume and cover letter, that saved time.

    The interview really only lasted for 20 minutes. They had a standardized set of questions. They were all skill based questions, none that asked about how you are as a person and at work. When I asked what kind of person they are looking for and what this role will be doing, one manager answered and was being very general, that they were looking for someone to do these tasks.

    I felt very rushed through the questions, I didn't get a chance to elaborate. I was cut off multiple times and was moved on to the next question. They also didn't have any follow up questions for me. They seemed nice, but I think the interview process could've been a lot better.
