    Field Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    This was conducted in Calgary. I had initially applied online rather than through my university as I wanted to land the job earlier, and my university only facilitates interviews 3 months before the work term. It was for a second year undergraduate engineering intern position that was stationed in Southern Alberta. The interview only lasted about half an hour - questions were standard.
