    Interview

    Applied online through CNRL's career site in late May for the September work term (8 months). Received a phone call about three weeks later from HR Recruiter to set up an phone interview with the department manager and supervisor who I would be working with. Questions were all behavioral based.

    Interview Questions

    • - What do you know about CNRL? Why do you want to work here?
      - What are your strengths/weaknesses?
      - Tell me about a time you set a goal for yourself and how you went about achieving it
      - Where do you see yourself 3-5 years from now?
      - When was a time you had a problem with a team member/co-worker? How did you resolve it?
      - When was a time you were under pressure/faced a tight schedule and what did you do?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Canadian Natural Resources.

    Interview

    Typical HR boilerplate interviews, asking the same questions that are a dozen years old. No basic courtesies offered - I was kept waiting 30 minutes, no offer of a drink or opportunity to hang up my coat. Interviews usually with >1 person, then usually a second given with higher management if you pass the first interview. Poor attempt was made to make you feel comfortable, which properly predicted that it isn't a 'kind and gentle' place to work.

    Interview Questions

    • All were pretty standard. Nothing creative or weird - pretty old school.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were not particularly open to negotiation.

    We were bought by CNRL, no job interview needed. They just had meetings between each person and the leaders to find a fit for everyone. From there they placed people based on their experience and need.
