I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON) in March-2018.
Asked to schedule a prescreen.
Recruiter was almost 10 minutes late to the call.
I would have declined this role had I been offered it.
The compensation outlined was not in line with what was advertised, and it was under my current compensation.
One of the only questions asked was "Read me back the job description and tell me how you think your skills will apply to each of the responsibilities listed. " Which as a recruiter is an extremely lazy method of skills assessment, actually had to the interviewer to repeat the question.
No questions were asked pertaining to my functional recruitment skills. As a recruiter, that's absolutely paramount.
This was one of, if not THE top employer in the region I was looking at. I'm woefully disappointed in how this played out, and the experience absolutely removed them from my list of potential employers for at least the foreseeable future.
Good luck hiring top talent with this method of screening.
