    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Collins Barrow (Edmonton, AB) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Basically it was done via email through a single manager and not HR. Applied online, got an email from a manger saying can you come in on this day. Moved things around and therefore I could make it. They did make me wait in the lobby easily more than half and hour. The other manager wasn't even around and they had to chase each other to get ready. Wouldn't make a client wait like that or be unprepared for a meeting.

    Interview Questions

    • They took the time to ask one question, tell us about yourself. That was it. That was the full extent of the interview after waiting a considerable time in the lobby. They put no effort into asking questions or trying to understand you.   1 Answer
