    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Simon Fraser University.

    Interview

    No interview process exactly. Just applied with cover letter and resume, which is submitted the particular department in which you're interviewing for. You go to the SFU website to see the vacancies per department. It is almost a waste of time to apply to a position outside your department, however, unless you have much experience. This is because they hire students within the department first.

    Interview Questions

    • In the cover letter, they just ask you to explain how you are fit for the particular class in which you would like to teach.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate.
