    I worked at FortisBC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job Security when a contract is in place for union members. Company training is available every year so long as there is a business benefit. Large service area with offices dispersed offers some the chance to explore other facilities and meet new coworkers. Great dental plan and benefits in general.

    Cons

    Sink or swim on some tasks that are given. Union negotiations can go on for a long time adding stress to life planning when your current term expires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job shadowing to gain experience/familiarity of your coworker responsibilities to assist in your awareness of what it is you do in your job can aid others best.

    Training Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kelowna, BC (Canada)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at FortisBC in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers were friendly and helpful during the process, but the recruiter was very unprofessional. When I was advised I did not get the job, the recruiter was very upbeat and laughed through her presentation of, "It was very close and you were a strong candidate, but we have decided to go with a someone else." I don't mind losing out on a job opportunity, but I objected to her gleeful tone in telling me I hadn't been chosen.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview process was based on a behavioural interview process and each department has their own questions specific to the position. One specific question asked was, "Can you remember a time when you have had difficulty in convincing your manager of a project or process. If yes, how did you approach the subject and were you successful?   Answer Question
