    Pros

    Fun brands and mostly clear direction. People were nice to each other. Christmas parties & summer hours were good perks.

    Cons

    Is now Bell and the Montreal corporate management could be clueless & appeared unwilling or unable to see the company as trans-Canada

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Astral Media.

    Interview

    had one interview asking some technical questions about web development mainly front end...interviewer was asking questions that i didnt know to memerize off hand such as random css attributes, and basic questions that dont mean anything as to when to use an id or a class. the interviewer didnt understand that you can also use an id in css, but was adamant i explain to him how the getelementbyID works in JS, i guess he wasnt aware of the getelementbyclassName LOL...and especially when using jquery you can select on class or id, so to be stuck on using id's was annoying.

    Interview Questions

    • was being asked less practical but theoretical questions, interviewer was more cocky than for his own good, wasnt interested in being asked about the theory of front end web, when its all practical, interviewer was asking googleable questions, was a turn off.   Answer Question
