    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Imperial Oil.

    Interview

    The overall interview experience was very good. Received a interview two weeks after applying and got to pick a time for the interview. The interviewer was an engineer so it was a much better experience than talking just to an HR person. They also made me feel very comfortable, (I was pretty nervous since it was my first interview). First he explained the hiring process and open positions then got into standard behavioral questions. In till lasted an hour.
