    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Strive Living Society (Vancouver, BC) in Jul 2018


    The interview was thorough and often used hypothetical situations. It was also friendly and relatively laid back as in I felt that interviewer wanted me to succeed rather than try and stump me.

    What would you do if someone ran away while they were under your supervision?
