I worked at Newton Europe full-time
Will give anyone a chance to start out- a great place to get your foot in the door and gain experience!
High turnover, lots of lay-offs during slow season
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Newton Europe (Toronto, ON) in January-2012.
There was a presentation on campus followed by a test. The test was in 2 parts. First there was a mathematical component: simple compound interest, other basic math operations and finance questions. Next was a Mechanical aptitude test, how objects interact with each other, fluid flow. Both sections were 5 answer multiple choice. Finally there was a personality questionnaire about your achievements and motivations.
A week later I was called in for a 30 minute interview. Some fit questions such as why do you want this job, why did you choose your discipline etc. There was also a single problem solving question to establish the way you think.
Got an invitation to "Selection day". Day started with a quick intro about your self, the we moved into group problem solving activities. and a design challenge. during the design challenge you were called into a 2:1 interview. Finally you went over their basic methodology and you wrote 2 more tests. 1 was a case study, the other was a business aptitude test. Lunch was then served. Out of the roughly twenty people there, 5 got invited to stay on further, I along with 15 others were sent packing.
