    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Black & McDonald (Toronto, ON) in September 2019.

    Interview

    the recruiter would first randomly reach out a candidate without going through the resume, next up is a phone interview by recruiter, once stupid questions are asked they move to second round 1:1, they called me for a panel interview of 3 people one of the person never showed up and i was never informed while i traveled 60 km, the recruiter & manager asked me to come for a third round because the third person did not show up, they asked me to come at 7:15 am ... now they are saying that i am not selected however my qualifications were impressive waow after all that traveling and wastage of my time.. when requested to reimburse my traveling expense the recruiter said sorry we do not provide money for transportation.. amazing how big the company is & what kind of people work here... its a Trap don't fall for it..
