    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at York University.

    Interview

    Applied online to the York University Temporary Agency (YUTA), sent in a resume and cover letter. Received an email a week or so later, saying that I made it to the next stage and a link to a webpage where I had to answer a few follow-up questions. Received another email after that requesting interview with their HR reps. Went to the interview, the HR rep looked at my resume, and after a little bit of discussion quickly scheduled a following interview to book a temporary position with one of their departments. Met with the HR reps for that department the next day, and received a job offer that same afternoon.

    During my first interview, also had to complete a Microsoft Word, Excel and Typing test.
