    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cymax Stores (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a 3rd party recruiter after I applied online and I had the first HR screening interview with and then had two rounds of interviews with managers from Cymax. The process took too long (about 2 months) and the behavioral interview was a joke. I was told there is no right or wrong answer, but then the guy who asked me the questions made me feel extremely uncomfortable and didn’t accept any answer I gave him. He was extremely condescending. I wish I had just walked out!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cymax Stores (Burnaby, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Interview One: Group interview with about 5-6 others. Asked basic questions like how we would handle a difficult customer and what animal we most identify with. Very casual.

    Interview Two: Sales manager gives you a weird test about Cymax values that you have to attempt to guess correctly on. There's not studying or prep - I guess to see what you think Cymax values are. Once finished the interview focuses mostly on your test answers. They do try and trip you up and make you feel like you aren't saying the right thing - i'm not sure why.

    I was offered the job at the second interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cymax Stores (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Aisling is wonderful. funny, if overworked, and i clicked with her right away. The in-person interview with Anna was more difficult but long and meaningful. I was very motivated afterward. But it led to me being hired and was worth the experience. I started within a few days after my final interview. It all went downhill after about 10 months.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cymax Stores.

    Interview

    We setup a phone interview screen. Standard questions. HR asked to setup another interview. They gave me the time&date but it conflicted with my schedule. I replied back asking for reschedule. They didn't reply back until 1 week later. Really looks bad on their part. Didn't allow me to pick date&time.

    Resolutions Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cymax Stores (Burnaby, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    A 2 stage interview, the first of which was a group interview, followed by a solo interview approximately 2 or 3 days later. It was a simple straight forward interview followed by a written test. The interviewers are usually very amiable and take you for a tour of the office as well. The office itself is a little odd on one side is the lively call center and the other is the IT & some other people who do things with products. It seems a little divided in that sense with a glass wall seperating the two sides.

    Online Merchandising Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cymax Stores (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    When they called me to set up an in-person interview, they also conducted a small 5-10 minute introductory interview on the spot, asking pretty basic questions (what appealed to you about this role, what is your ideal working environment, etc...).

    The in-person interview was composed of two parts: a traditional interview and an excel test. The interview questions were very standard. You are given 30 minutes to complete the Excel test, and is composed of VLookup and conditional formatting-type questions.

    The final part of the interview process is a take-home test that examines your attention to detail, accuracy, basic html coding skills, research skills, and written proficiency. The test is very easy.
