    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à City of Hamilton, Ontario (Hamilton, ON) en février 2019.

    Entretien

    They had a set of 7 questions (with a b c d e), each worth points where the passing mark was 70%. The interview was about 2 hours (introductions, questions, question period at end). The questions were a mix of personality and technical based, but open ended. They had a criteria of what the candidate should answer to get the mark and I was probed constantly on certain parts in my answers to meet those requirements.

    Interview took about an hour. City HR uses an extremely dated method of hiring. My interviewers were able to adjust to make my interview less rigid. You had to receive a minimum score of 70 in order to pass the interview.

    Entretien

    Mostly scenario based questions and a few questions about the skills required for the role . One of the interviewers was more laid back while the other was stricter and harder to read. A downside is it that the hiring process is for a pool so, your interviewer might or might not be your manager upon resumption.

    Entretien de Inclusion Counselor

    Expérience positive
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé un entretien à City of Hamilton, Ontario (Hamilton, ON).

    Entretien

    Circuit style interview where they had over 100 applicants come to one location and rotate between different stations where they asked different questions and gave you a score. The higher you score (in total with all the interview questions) the higher you are placed on the Eligible Hire List. They go down this list and fill positions as they become vacant. Keep in mind that there are many returning staffs and they will always have first priority. Very stressful process as it is timed and you only have a minute to answer the questions before you dash off to the next station to answer the next question.

    Entretien de Financial Assistant

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Hamilton, ON
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à City of Hamilton, Ontario (Hamilton, ON) en mai 2016.

    Entretien

    I applied online through the city's website, and received the first circuit round interview three weeks later. The interview involved rotating between 6 booths, with 2 mins to read and prepare responses, and 4 mins to answer.

    I enjoyed answering and interacting with the interviewers, however only 4 of them seemed interested and would respond and inquire further to what I had to say. Two of the interviewers seemed cold and would not even interact. I guess they had been there all day, so fatigue must have set in.

    Overall, getting a job with the city is difficult unless you know someone in HR or were referred by an existing employee. Before the interview, I approached colleagues who had been interviewed at the city, and one of them said that it was just a show they were putting up to show everyone they have "fair recruitment policies", but they probably have a candidate selected. The colleague had been interviewed for the Admin Assist position, however the person who got in had been coached, so it was all a charade. The city says they are against nepotism but I find that hard to believe. They may be against nepotism at the level of city politicians, but not at the HR level. I also consulted with another colleague who had known someone working in HR at the city, and he told me that he was told even getting a position for a garbage picker within the city is extremely nepotistic.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 1 jour. J'ai passé un entretien à City of Hamilton, Ontario (Waterloo, ON) en février 2014.

    Entretien

    The interview played out more like a casual conversation. The interviewer wanted to get a feel for my personality to see if I was a good fit for a team, but also made it clear that it was my opportunity to learn more about the company and position. This is most likely because I was only in my first year of university and had little to no know practical engineering experience.
