I have been working at Canada Law BookPros
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.Recommends

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Canada Law Book in October 2008.Interview Details
I had to submit answers to a pre-defined questionnaire stating why I wanted to join the company & what skills I have & include this with my cover letter.
I had two interviews, bother were extremely short - under 20 minutes. One of the interviewers appeared no interested in the interview & gave the impression they would rather be somewhere else. Interview questions did appear to be taken from a list you can find off the internet & appeared to be not structured around the job I was being interviewed for.
The 2nd interview was pretty much the same format, with some of the same questions being asked. The 2nd interview gave the impression that it was arranged in a rush & that any notes from the previous interview were not studied (hence duplication in questions asked).
I was not given a tour of the facilities, but when being escorted to & from the meeting room, it appeared to be clean & recently re-furbished. But the atmosphere was extremely quiet, which could be perceived as a little unsettling.
After the 2nd interview I was emailed a link to an online personality test. Basically, it you were asked the same questions twice (but phrased differently) about how you would deal with specific situations.No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
