Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at University of Toronto (Toronto, ON)

Interview

I was interviewed by three people. They all sat in comfortable chairs around a long table. Meanwhile, they made me sit at the edge of the table which was quite uncomfortable as I was right up against the steel table legs. I was not at ease during the whole interview, even more so when they gave me a small laptop to do a writing exercise at that same edge of the table. I recall a time when almost all job interviews would have a friendly and engaging tone. It was understood by all parties that even though you weren't guaranteed the job, everyone could nonetheless be pleasant and encourage open, cordial conversation. That was not the case at this interview. This was more of an ultra-modern, bureaucratic tone where the company obviously chose to project a cold and disengaged demeanour. Sadly, this now seems to be more and more the norm for job interviews.

Interview Questions
  • The questions were mostly situational and the tone was cold and mechanical. They concluded by asking me for my thoughts on diversity in the workplace.

The interview process was smooth, but with a slow response time from application submission to hearing back from them. Two rounds first technical and then behavioral interviews. The decision came in a week or so.

Efficient and positive experience to work at the university help desk. Emphasis on strong customer service skills and technical problem solving.

Interview Questions
  • Teach me how to do something in-depth in 5 minutes. Roleplay type questions like a user not being able to log into a website. Basic networking questions like subnetting, SMTP, TCP/IP, ...
