    I worked at Encana full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is probably lower than the industry but the benefits are above average. First and third Fridays off, generous vacation, and bonuses were normally very generous.

    Cons

    Since benefits and bonuses are generous the pay is lower than industry average and raises were not frequent but this also had to do with the downturn in the industry. Because of the work/life balance people are reluctant to leave so there are not many spots available for career advancement.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Encana in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had a couple phone interviews with HR, and then flew across the country for an in-person interview. They asked basic questions and some asking what you would do in the situation. Some of the interviewers were nice and interested, but a couple seemed really stressed and were projecting some of their issues with their current role onto the interview. It took a couple months to hear back, I'm pretty sure I was the second choice and they were hashing it out with another candidate before getting back to me. They had a third party call all three of my references from Canada and talked to them for about half an hour each. In addition to being very time consuming, they were at work and weren't sure if they'd get international phone charges. HR was very nice, it was just an incredibly long process.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were like how would you proceed in certain scenarios, safety culture, relationships between different departments, nothing too tricky.   Answer Question
