I worked at BBA inc. full-time
friendly environment, flexible schedule, no real management >> no real supervision! you can go to work and do nothing for weeks without anybody even noticing you! , 37.5 hours work a week
- they suffer seriously from lack of management at least in their Vancouver office ; although they have been around for almost 10yeras in vancouver, but still no management structure has formed there. the company in general does not have a proper structure
- salaries are low. all you get is your base salary nothing added to it. oh there is a yearly bonus of $400 tho!
- french(Quebecois) people run the company, including the vancouver office, who are biased to a good extent against non-french people. if you want to progress in your career and are not from Quebec and dont speak French, do not waste your time! they would keep you as a worker bee forever while you can watch your Quebecois fellows grow
- they literally use their vancouver office to catch projects for their office in Quebec. not much to do and learn in the vancouver office
Advice to Management
Structure some management!
increase the salaries.
treat people fairly - either french or english!
I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BBA inc. (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2015.
Applied online then got a call from HR after 2/3 weeks. At first a phone interview for approx 30-40 min. After a week, an interview with 2 Sr. Engineering Manager and HR was conducted face to face. This interview took almost an hour. Finally, they ask for references and conducted background checks and mentioned to contact me within 3 weeks but still no confirmation
