    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & Wilcox (Toronto, ON) in October-2017.

    Interview

    Got a phone call to schedule an interview within a week or two. Interview with 2 directors who let me know that they'd like me to follow up the next week with the CEO or VP. Interviewed with 2 higher execs and they followed up within a few days. The attitude seems competitive and serious so be ready/prepared but don't let it intimidate you.
