Absolutely positive. My interview was conducted by the HR Recruiter and the Project Leader, followed by a technical section where I was tested by two senior software engineers (10+ years). Everyone was polite and happy during the interview process.

Interview

Really long vague interview process and the hiring manager wasn't sure about the process from the start. The 5+ interviews went well. There were multiple team interviews with common team members in most of the rounds. The supposedly final interview went well and was told about another interview afterwards. The whole process took 2 months with vague information about the next process. Easy questions otherwise, good, friendly team and the management except the unprofessional hiring team. The post final interview with the manager went well and was told that the offer letter would be sent in 2 days. Waited for 2 weeks with no response to any of my emails. I mean really what kind of company does that. My suggestion if you pass all the interview rounds, there could be few more random rounds in the end and don't think you got the job until your first physical day at the office. Good luck ;)

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at MDA (Brampton, ON) in Nov 2020

Interview

Step 1 - informal phone screening with TA just to go over resume Step 2 - more in depth interview with CFO Step 3 - never hear back from either of them again. Very disappointing to be ghosted by a company like this.

Non-technical interview process mainly consists of discussing mutual interests with the manager. Spent a lot of time dreaming of the position so this was easy for me. Discussed company’s current projects and showed interest and drive.
