Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ontario Ministry of Safety & Correctional Services in Feb 2021
I've been interviewed for two different positions an it's either an assignment they either send in advance (1 week before the interview), OR that they provide 1 hour before the interview). They will also have a round of 4-6 questions that will test your experiences, understanding of the role/competencies, issues, work required, and company policies.
- I can't disclose this, sorry, but they are questions related to the role and the department using scenarios. "Tell us a time that you..." But using the "STAR" method helps.

Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. I interviewed at Ontario Ministry of Safety & Correctional Services
Selected for a 10 minute pre-interview, 3 minutes of which was spent describing interview process and introducing panel consisting of 4 senior members of the Centre for Forensic Sciences. Prior to the interview it was described as being a mix of both general and scientific questions. Turns out each panel member asked one question each. 3 general science questions and one general question. Perhaps a good way to filter candidates but definitely not a rigorous way to assess a candidate’s qualifications.
- What is forensic toxicology?

Anonymous Employee in Monteith, ON
I applied in-person. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Ontario Ministry of Safety & Correctional Services (Monteith, ON)
Filled out and submitted an application. The application was reviewed. I had to submit health and eye exam results. I had to get certified in First Aid & CPR. I was called into a local testing center where we underwent scenario analysis and wrote an entrance exam. I was contacted by the training center at Bell Cairn near Hamilton and was given a training start date for a 7 week corrections training course.
- Basic addition and subtraction exercises that many people failed. We had to keep track of and maintain a total number of inmates as they were moved from cell to cell. 4 of 12 applicants in my test group were selected for training.
- Many questions on the exam tested a person's thought process, ability to think through challenging ethical/moral decision making skills. The questions were formatted to distinguish a person's personality types and reaction to violence, opposition and coping ability.
