    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Magna International in May-2014.

    Interview

    Hiring process was done through University of Waterloo's provided portal (i.e. Jobmine). The format of the interview was a ten minute presentation on yourself in regards to why you were the best candidate, followed by some time for traditional "question and answer". Intimidating at first but interesting as fellow colleagues mentioned this method of interviewing is most prominent with senior management positions.
