    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Credit Union (Canada) (Bowen Island, BC) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Standard HR questions. Trying to ascertain how you handle working with peers and how you handle difficult situations. We talked on the phone, then we met in person. It was all very friendly and clear.
