    I worked at Cardno full-time

    Pros

    If you like engineering or environmental work, this is a great company. They offer decent benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    If you fill a support role and aren't an engineer, prepare to be looked down on and treated as expendable or unimportant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just say you have an open door policy, actually follow through on it. Saying you want to be transparent but then demonstrating otherwise is a great way to break trust.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cardno in August 2017.

    Interview

    Extremely rude and curt interviewer. Can't understand why they'd have someone with such bad interpersonal skills interview people. Asked blunt questions in a brash way. Good sign to steer clear of organization. Lastly, said things like "we like you" and "if you could start next week would you?" and set up things to chat with hiring manager but then radio silence. Seems like I dodged a bullet.
