Our Recruitment Process

Our recruitment process reflects legislation requirements within our collective agreements, Human Rights of BC, and Employment Standards.

Recruitment Process Overview

  1. All our positions are posted online.
  2. When a recruitment campaign for a position ends, we begin reviewing the resumes to short list the candidates with the top skills.
  3. Depending on the vacancy, shortlisted candidates may be required to complete a standardized test to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and/or abilities.
  4. Candidates who pass the test are then interviewed, typically by a panel, using the same set of questions for each interviewee and ranked based on their overall answers.
  5. Human Resources verify employment references. Depending on the job, a criminal record search may be required. A job offer is then presented to the candidate that has demonstrated the best skills, knowledge and aptitude for the job.
