    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BC Hydro in March-2017.

    Interview

    Interview over Skype. Fairly casual, included some typical interview questions ie. what was one time you took initiative at a past job, how do BC Hydro's core values line up with you, give an example of how you resolved a disagreement with a co-worker in the past. Talked about the job and expectations, asked to tell a little bit about myself and past experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Hardest questions asked were typical interview questions asking for examples of situations encountered in past jobs and how I reacted.   Answer Question
