I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.
I entered the facility, was greeted and shown to a small office where I filled out my reference information. They had space for four, I had three, and they didn't say anything about it. Then I was shown to a large boardroom and seated at the head of the table. There was about a 10min wait as I was the first interview for them that day. There were three interviewers, including the assistant manager of the division. They took turns asking me 14 behavioral questions and then gave me a chance to ask questions. Note: I havent received an offer yet so I put "No Offer" but I was the first candidate interviewed, so fingers crossed!

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) (Midtown Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2017.
Very controlled by interviewers (two), no two way communication beyond answering the predetermined questions. The 12 situational questions all had to be work history related, I felt this really limited my ability to best show how I behave in and react to various situations. For instance I didnt have a strong answer when asked how I had assisted a person with a disability while working but I have helped push, feed and care for my wheelchair bound mother inlaw for several yrs.. The same when asked how I reacted to a stressful situation, I saved a persons life by entering a burning smoke filled apt. and getting them out at age 14 but it wasnt work related so I couldnt use it as an example. In my opinion the controlled interview did not give the interviewers the opportunity to best judge my character and abilities. At no time was I asked why I thought I might make a good operator or asked to offer any information that might assist them in gauging my suitability as one.
