While the process may vary based on different roles, here are some of the ways we assess our candidates in the hiring process:
Preliminary Telephone Interviews
This is typically our first step with you as a candidate. We will have a short 15–20-minute phone call to discuss your past work and schooling experience, some key skills and job requirements before taking some time to answer any questions you may have.
If you have not heard from us within two weeks of your interview, it is safe to assume we have moved on with another candidate.
Formal Interviews consist of sitting down with Human Resources and the Hiring Manager and going a little more in-depth about your experience. This interview is often at least an hour long and will be a combination of experience, skill, and behavioural style questions.
We will contact you regardless of how this interview goes.
To better understand the skills you bring to the table, we often do skills assessments. This varies based on the role for which you have applied. Some skill assessment examples include: formatting documents, and reading electrical drawings.
This 35-minute assessment helps us get to see the full picture of you. We use Prevue’s reliable scientific model to ensure that your traits, interests, and skills complement the role for which you have applied.
Our last step before an offer is checking a candidate’s references. We ask that your references adhere to the following criteria:
- at least one of a supervisor
- at least one of a working relationship
- and three total.
Decision and Offer
Once we have come to a decision, we will put an offer together, give you a call, and give you some time to review it. If you have any questions about your offer, always ask!
