    Strategist Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at City of Calgary (Calgary, AB) in Aug 2020

    Interview

    Interview process was extremely drawn out at seven weeks. A pre-screen call happened rather quickly upon job post closing date, and then a panel interview was involved, but then no word. Very disappointed that no feedback given other than hearing deadlines for reference requests and eventual hire. When so much time and effort is needed for an interview, the very least is to communicate feedback to all narrowed down candidates. Felt like the role must not be a real priority then for the particular business unit.
    Interview

    Typical behavioural questions along with a walkthrough of a process worked on.
