    Interview

    The interview was done by HM and HR consultant. HR consultant had an interesting approach - military style. The problem - it is NOT for everyone, HR must be emotionally intelligent and unbiased. Absolutely unprofessional, rude, and disrespectful HR consultant. I am quite sure hiring manager would have preferred different approach/style to conduct the interview.
    In short - STAY AWAY if you contacted by HR consultant from Toronto Hydro, horrible experience.
