    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Canada Border Services Agency (Windsor, ON) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Thorough, three seperate interviews, first part of the process was a group test then a second interview with three people asking questions and the last stage was an interview with three people asking questions. The final interview was for a specific placement to an area they were hiring for. I had gotten an email response saying funding was cut and they only were able to hire a select number of people that they set out to interview. My name stayed in the national pool for two years and then they told us it would be removed and we would have to go through the interview process again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Canada Border Services Agency (Mississauga, ON) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process itself was not difficult, was reasonable. The issue was with the man who conducted my background check, he had found something that was not entirely accurate and yelled at me on the phone before hanging up. Was not given a chance to explain myself. Aced everything up until this point. Disappointing experience
