    I worked at COGECO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There was NO work. For 99 percent of the time I did nothing -- really is this how Cogeco likes to waste its money?

    Cons

    They had a horrible and disfunctional database for their 'business' customers. It was like they could care less.

    Advice to Management

    Why waste so much money on paying someone to do nothing for 7.5 hours a day? Do you people even have a brain? Is this why Cogeco is so expensive?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at COGECO in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and got a call back about a week later. I got left a message. I called back after work asking for a call back at a time I was not at work on an answering machine. Another week later I was called back for a grilling phone interview. I was asked what my current wage was and why I left my previous job and other personal questions I did not apreciate.

    Anyway, I got an in person interview. I was told I had to complete an online assessment. When I did it, the exercise was 45 minutes and you need a PC. It puts you through different sales senerios you must place orders, find products, check your emails and answer your fictitious customers. It was actually kind of fun. Just make sure you are in a quiet space.

    After all of that I have to be asked all the same questions again but in person.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiates are not accepted. But the initial pay is pretty good so no need.
