    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Canalyst (Vancouver, BC).

    Interview

    Poor interview process. They will give you a few minutes to go through a case study and then discussion shall follow. Be prepared to have a healthy discussion during the interview. Don't be fooled by positive feedback from the interviewer, they just don't want to lie on your face.

Second one is a group interview with several experienced people. Also many technical questions, need to know accounting inside out. Be ready for some "uncomfortable" questions.

    Interview

    The overall interview is very pleasant, even though the technical questions are hard. You have to know your stuff inside and out.
    Basic behavior questions and technical questions for corporate finance, accounting, and economics. Also, you need to pay attention to what's happening in the industry. Asked me some questions about my investible ideas and opinions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Canalyst.

    Interview

    Honestly, even before the interview started with questions. I did not like the vibes and reaction that I received from the founder. He was always on his phone while I was answering his questions. Even though I stayed to just get the interview over and done with, I was considering get up and leaving. I really hope the company reevaluates the way they treat candidates as I spent a long time prepping and commuting to get to the interview. Strongly recommend against this company.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Canalyst (Vancouver, BC) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very casual but there were many technical questions from economics, corporate finance, and financial analysis. So you need to know accounting and annual report inside and out.

    Very hard and competitive. Be prepared to be tested on the spot with technical, accounting, economic, Merger and acquisition questions. They start by asking you a little about your experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Canalyst (Toronto, ON) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I interviewed this week in Toronto with one of their analysts. Overall a great experience. The analyst was very smart and kind. He asked tough technical questions in accounting, economics and valuations/multiples and stuff. One of the best interview experiences I have had so far

    During Q&A I asked him about what the company does and why it exists/pros and cons and he gave me a very informative and refreshing answer. Seems like you can learn a lot working there and I hope I get the chance to join the team
