Here are some things to look forward to:

First conversation

Our standard interview process varies based on the roles but in most cases the process begins with an initial phone or Zoom call with a recruiter on a Talent Acquisition team. If we both decide to move forward, the next step will involve interviewing with the hiring manager and then other key stakeholders who you would be interacting with on a regular basis. If you are being considered for a management role you will also meet with one of two of your potential direct reports.



How can we help you learn more?

During the interview process, it’s not only important that we get a full understanding of your capabilities, but we also want to ensure that you are able to get a detailed understanding of the position that you are considering. If there are individuals who you would like to speak with and they are not part of your interview panel, please reach out to your recruiter to discuss.

Final steps

If your interview process results in an offer, your recruiter will normally discuss the specifics of the offer with you verbally and, if you agree to accept, an offer letter will be sent out that includes your start date. Your recruiter will be able to work with you to answer any questions that you may have about compensation, benefits or the role itself.



Need to cancel or reschedule?

We understand that even with the best of planning, surprises can happen that may lead you to need to cancel or reschedule an interview.  If that happens, the best way to alert us is to “reply all” to the e-mail confirming your interview. This will notify both the Recruiter and the TA Coordinator assigned your interview process.

Please keep us informed

If during the interview process your situation changes, please contact your Recruiter to make them aware. We strive to be as timely as possible. Your recruiter is your guide and available to answer any questions and support you throughout the process.
