Relax atmosphere. The interview lasted about 1 hr, tour of the office, chat with the managers, chat with a staff member (which I really appreciated, because it gives a good idea of the work environment and a second point of view of the job position applied for). The whole interview process was held in both official languages (French and English). It was overall a nice interview experience.

One sided with not enough communications with the employees, formal, tedious yet not effective.

Answered - Sr Portfolio Analyst, EI PMO (Former Employee) - Sheppard & Vic Park

Report answer

Long, but standard. Usually two rounds, 45mins, you meet with HR, then your hiring manager, and short list to the reporting managers leaders. Some hiring managers are on point and organized, where others say they are conducting "casual" interviews and have little direction. Recommend preparing by coming equipped with previous examples of your skill sets, and achievements. Standard of a couple weeks before hearing back. Depending on your HR or Hiring team, you may or may not even receive a call or email unless you are chosen
