    Interview

    Overall, it was a pleasant experience. The interview was properly scheduled and was quite professional. However, the response time took longer than usual, and the interviewer had to be contacted for a decision.

    Health and Safety Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, ON
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sofina Foods (London, ON).

    Interview

    Informal start to the interview which is always good but then they wanted to know about every job I had on my resume and why I left plus they expected me to remember detail to detail things about my previous roles so make sure whatever you have on your resume you can answer to. As I got to know the interviewers a bit during the interview I quickly realized I had way more experience and knowledge than they did which is probably why I didn't make it to the next stage. I was clearly overqualified for this role. I would have been a great asset to them in terms of what they were looking for though. I could have created an amazing safety plan for them and even won the company awards like I have for other companies I've worked for, but they didn't seem interested in that. I think they just want a "Yes" person who will do what they say and don't want someone with a lot of experience, initiative, drive and vision. Doesn't matter to me. I'm already happily in a job where I make more money and have a lot of autonomy over my role and developing a health and safety management system here. I applied to Sofina simply because it was closer to home and I had the skill set for the position.
