    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aecon (Toronto, ON) in October-2017.

    Interview

    First, they sent an email to schedule time for phone interview. Phone screening is done by one person who asks basic questions about your resume. nothing out of the ordinary. Then after a while, I was invited for a panel interview. I had 4 people interview me. it was pretty relaxed and fun. they talked about details of the position in the 2nd interview and I had opportunity to ask them questions about the company. I would say, be relaxed and portray confidence in your answers, smile and be comfortable with yourself. Hr very polite and always responded whenever questions were asked.
