Interview Process

Our process generally begins with a brief telephone screen. Telephone screens give us an opportunity to confirm your skill-set, interests, desired compensation, etc. and verify the match between our needs and your strengths. When there is enough common ground, the telephone interview is generally followed-up by an in-person interview.

The first in-person interview is a Behavioural Style Interview with a member of our HR/People Development team. Pending the outcome of the first interview, secondary interviews will take place with the hiring Manager (and potentially another individual within the department) within one to two weeks. The typical duration of an interview at Bison Transport is 30 minutes to 60 minutes.

The purpose of the behavioral interview is to ensure we hire the best candidate possible. Behavioral Style Interviewing is based on the belief that past performance is the best predictor of future success. It is important to us to ask similar questions of every candidate to ensure we receive consistent information.

These are examples of questions that may be asked of you:

  • Provide an example of a project you successfully completed.
  • Describe a difficult situation you've faced in the workplace and the outcome.
  • What do you do that's different from others in your profession?
  • Why do you want to work for Bison Transport?

Reference checking is the final step of the process and is done to substantiate and validate information received throughout the recruitment and interview process.
