    Integration Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Groundswell Group (Calgary, AB) in November 2011.

    Interview

    3 Interview Stages.
    (First Interview was with several people - to assess technical skilss, then 2nd interview (face-to-face to see if good personality fit for both parties, final interview was with Senior director for their approval)

    Very friendly people, more of a consultation interview and chat - rather than any type of HR Inquisition. Limited room to negotiate salary - I preferred an extra weeks vacation instead.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Groundswell Group (Calgary, AB) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and HR was in contact with me within 2 weeks to set up an initial Phone interview. Phone interview was mostly basic questions and letting me know more about the company and its culture. I was contacted within a few days to set up a second interview with the same HR recruiter that did my phone interview and the VP who leads the department.

    In person interview focused a lot on my qualifications for the role and asked a lot of questions about my hobbies as well as my current company. HR recruiter was very pleasant to talk to and was more like a conversation. Having the VP in the room was intimidating and seemed less interested in my answers. Lots of emphasis on cultural fit for the company.

    I didn't end up making it to the final round of interviews as they decided to hire the temp they currently had in the position. I really appreciated that the HR recruiter took the time to give me a call and explain why I wasn't hired despite being qualified for the position.

    They are not focused on industry experience, more so on your attitude, and sales approaches.
    Do a bit of industry on data management, and the local economy. Have some ideas about where new business could come from (keep in mind they only provide services for very large firms)
