    I worked at Federated Co-Operatives full-time

    Pros

    Biggest employer in Saskatchewan. Some good people to work with. Good compensation package.

    Cons

    Incompetent leadership. They say one thing but actions are completely not aligned. Inability to trust, feel safe to share ideas, issues, and thoughts. Creates an anxious work environment. No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Align your actions with what you say so people can feel safe to share ideas/concerns/recommendations. Provide clearer direction and make decisions in a timely fashion instead of continuously putting roadblocks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Federated Co-Operatives (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The overall process was very pleasant with a phone and panel in person interview. HR from Saskatoon was extremely pleasant to speak with over the phone and just as nice in person. Overall interview format is a bit different from normal as competencies are described to you as opposed to individual questions being asked to gauge your competency in certain areas.

    Interview Questions

    • Interpersonal competence - Gauging how well you interact with others, both positive and negative. Also to determine what kind of communication that is most effective in a given situation. Diplomacy is key in this case. Keeping all this in mind, provide example of a situation where you were forced to use diplomacy between co-workers and how that has had a continuing effect.   Answer Question
