    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in September 2009.

    Interview

    The initial contact, interview, and hiring process took 6 weeks. Interviews are via panel - usually with 2 to 3 people: HR representative, the program manager, and a clinical executive. Each interview questioned is weighed and scored. Expect about 10 questions, usually there is one on Diversity and what it means to you; one on your time management skills; one question on how you prioritize work. Be prepared to answer scenario questions, i.e. "What would you do if..."

    Information Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Sent in resume and cover letter to HR email, but addressed cover letter to manager of department I was applying to. They are the ones who will be making the final decisions. Called in for an interview several weeks later and was not given much notice. I was Interviewed by the Department manager and an HR staff member. They took turns asking me to answer questions and wrote down notes while I spoke. There are 10 questions, they will be about topics covered in the job posting. They will usually also ask you about what diversity means to you as diversity is an important part of CAMH's corporate structure. This portion of the interview took half an hour and for the second potion of my interview I had to perform and excel test because it was relevant to my job. I was given half an hour for this portion as well. Make sure you log in and and open excel before they start the timer as it can take some time for the computer to boot up. Was called about a week and a half later to be informed that they would be checking my references and if those checked out I had the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was impersonal, asking questions and writing them down while making limited eye contact and not asking personal questions. They also changed the position from casual to full-time and told me at the interview. I emailed the interviewer to thank her for her time and requested feedback from how the interview went and received no response.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Two step process - quick phone screen followed by on site interview.
    CAMH seems to have a policy to contact only successful candidates.
    I never heard anything back following the interview.

    Conversations are quite professional, which might make you think that the interviewers lack basic social skills but I think there might be a policy to avoid personal questions during interviewing process.

Spent about 90 minutes together because of the laughing...questions were pretty standard. Make sure you know about the CAMH values, strat plan and mental health plans for camh as well as Ontario.

    Research Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Standard two-phase interview, one with the team and one with HR. No surprises or curve ball questions, which were a mix of standardized questions and personalized based on my resume. Team was very cordial and friendly, as was the HR rep. Scheduling was quick and so were responses. I received an offer however declined because of the low salary, which was not negotiable. This part was surprising: I had been clear from the start (in my online application and first interview) about my salary expectations and what they offered was well below them. I wondered how I had made it through the initial application screening because of this! The job was appealing but the salary was just too low.

    Research Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly standard. I applied online and CAMH reached out to me via email in order to schedule a formal interview. There aren't really any surprises throughout the entire process. My only critique would be that it moved a little bit slowly for my tastes but I was eager for work at the time and perhaps even a little bit impatient. If you have some free time available I would suggest volunteering in a work setting that involves interacting with the mentally ill, as CAMH seems to really like this on a resume

    Interview Questions

    • The interview process was fairly standard. We had a brief introduction of what CAMH did, stood for, etc. Then I was asked some typical behavioral questions (how would you respond to a stressful situation, name a time you showed leadership, etc)   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CAMH in June 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone Interview and Panel Interview. After two weeks after submitting my application I received a phone call for fixing interview time, then I received a confirmation email with necessary information. I called them as scheduled and it takes half an hour. I had problem with hearing their voice, but I did my best to answer all questions. I received an email after 3 days and I have been informed that I did not get the job. I do not know the whole process or next steps. It was my first experience for an interview.
