Interview

First there was a video interview where you record yourself answering some general questions about your interest in the company. If you pass that, then you move on to an (online) interview panel of around 4 people, with a mix of technical and non-technical people. Very behavioural-based for the most part, with the last part being technical (depending on your discipline), most likely talking about stuff you've listed on your resume.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PCL Construction

Interview

Typical interview, I didn't do very well because I'm a bit rusty due to being recently unemployed. After the interview, they send you a "personality test" and a link to send all your references an email requesting their work experience with you. I never received a follow-up email by the date the HR Recruiter had said they would. This means either they are overworking the HR team or they are unprofessional, so I feel like I dodged a bullet either way. P.S. PCL, it's not in good taste to omit the salary range for a position, try doing that and see if you get more candidates. Also, be open to offering hybrid remote/in-person positions for work that doesn't require being in the office FT.

Interview Questions
  • *What are your strengths/weaknesses *What did the day-to-day typically look like in your last position
