I worked at BuildDirect full-time
Great view from the office, unlimited vacation, some good people are left, they have exited CCAA successfully, have received new funding
The business model for this company is flawed, they have been losing money for a long time and despite a reduction in burn rate I very much doubt they can turn it around. The company has recently focused on sectors of the market they think will save them but have failed to differentiate themselves from competitors. Talent and senior leadership left in large numbers after they went into official financial restructuring (CCAA) The plan towards profitability is pure fantasy, I feel sorry for the investors and employees.
Advice to Management
Don't just think about your exit strategy...
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BuildDirect (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2016.
Firstly the HR showed the office, then he asked routine questions such as why you chose this program. Then a lead developer came and asked technical questions, like what is OOP. Finally he gave two live coding (very brief). Routine questions were too lengthy, but technical questions were easy. My opinion: STOP asking what is OOP!
