Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Toronto (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2019

Interview

You meet with a rep from HR and at least 2-3 other individuals involved with the position. They take turns asking questions. It is uncomfortable, extremely formal and cold. You will also have to either do a presentation or a computer assessment test. Most importantly, the hiring process at UofT is often illegal and a set up. They already have who they want to hire in mind and prep that person. They are required to interview others, so they waist everyone’s time in the process. I seen it happen with several positions over my years employed there. If you are not an internal employee applying within it is a pretty slim chance you will be hired...you are being used as a pawn.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at University of Toronto (Toronto, ON) in Sep 2018

Interview

I was interviewed by three people, an HR consultant and two Faculty members. The interview was a power game between the HR consultant and the Faculty members requiring assistance. Although I have recent experience in a similar position and excellent references, I made the mistake of addressing myself to the Faculty and not the HR consultant.
