    I have been working at Canada Law Book

    Pros

    Strong people, high quality products and an excellent reputation for outstanding customer service in the marketplace. Also allows an opportunity for motivated employees to have a noticeable impact on the company's success. Flexibile hours and half-day Fridays aren't bad either!

    Cons

    The salaries in the publishing industry as a whole tend to be lower than in other sectors. That said, CLB seems to be competitive with other legal publishers. Previous posts had criticisms about our HR department but hopefully the recent major restructuring in the department will have a postive impact for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the open door policy that exists among VPs at The Cartwright Group and CLB's VP is open to new and innovative ideas.

    Production Editor Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Canada Law Book in March 2007.

    Interview Details

    I was already working on contract when I applied. Internal postings are also posted externally (makes no sense, I know). The interview was with a manager and a human resources person. The questions were fairly typical: things like "Tell me about a time when you had to overcome a challenge".

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were unexpected, because they always ask the same sorts of questions. "Can you give an example of a time when you had to be set priorities?"   View Answer
    • "Can you tell us about a time when you had to overcome a challenge?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation (although I have heard that some of the men have been able to negotiate a bit more). Otherwise, the salary offered is all you'll get.
