    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at City of Calgary in March 2013.

    Interview

    STAR approach for questions. Two to three people in the room taking notes. Sought out how I approached tasks or responsibilities. Looked to know what ambitions were for the job.Ask me possible start date as well as other qualifications I may have. Overall, good process. People were nice and walked me through the entire interview process.
