    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CAMH.

    Interview

    Went through HR, got an email back after a month or so. Position was pretty demanding in terms of specific experiences with x population, I had little to no experience with the population so I found the interview difficult. The emphasis was on questions getting at past experience with the tasks you'll be expected to do, as per the postings. Interview format is rigid, and interviewers have a rubric attached to the sheet they'll be evaluating you with. I have prior experience with camh and found my prior interviews to be pleasant, but the group I interviewed with were antagonistic and downright unprofessional--two of the three panel members looked to each other mid-response to make snide eye contact and smile. Other than that, interview was fine and they asked fair questions as per the posting, so no real curve balls so to speak of.

    Information Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted a few days later via email to set up an interview for the following week. Was told the interview would be a panel of three people, only two actually interviewed me. I had memorized facts about CAMH but was never asked what I knew about the company. The two interviewers went back and forth asking questions, about 8 in total. The questions are long multipart questions I have never encountered before, so be prepared for that.
    I was told I'd hear back by HR no matter what. It's been almost two weeks with no contact, so that was unprofessional. Especially considering I had commuted one hour each way for this interview.

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CAMH (Toronto, ON) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Was mechanical and uninterested in what I could bring to the project. I was unable to express who I was and truly understand the project. I was taken aback by the differences in how they interacted with me vs. the others who came in to interview. I was uncomfortable with the lack of discipline with time, location, and responses.
