Long View’s Vision of 100
When Don Bialik founded Long View in 1999, he set out to create a 100 year old company. Through keeping our integrity, continually developing our competence, adding real value to our client’s businesses, and always having fun, we will be able to accomplish his goal.

 

Long View. A career that helps you get more out of life.

Working at Long View isn’t just a means of paying the bills. It’s different here — because, as the saying goes: you can do what you love…and love what you do. Working at Long View means you can have a career that helps you get more out of life.

Long View was started in 1999 and run out of a house in the Calgary suburbs. Since those humble beginnings, Long View has grown into a company that operates on a global scale, with offices in North America.

There are good reasons for our growth and success. Plenty of them, in fact. The vast majority have to do with hiring the best people, and providing them with the tools they need to excel both in their careers with Long View, and their lives outside of work.

At Long View, we create an environment of collaboration and support, of innovation and enthusiasm. We’re proud to say that we view each other as family. We’ve established a culture that’s built on Integrity, Competence, Value and Fun and that resonates through everything we do.

We’re proud of our reputation as one of North America’s most dynamic IT providers which offers one of the best work-life balance experiences.

We’re proud of our reputation as one of North America’s most dynamic IT providers and we’re even prouder of our culture that allows our people to live life to its fullest. At Long View, we create an environment of collaboration and support, of innovation and enthusiasm. As a member of the Long View team, you’ll see how our company’s core pillars of Integrity, Competence, Value, and Fun resonate through the workplace. And you’ll be recognized and rewarded for your innovation, effort, and enthusiasm. Just a job? Not on your life.

We believe that a challenged, fulfilled employee is a happy employee. In order to support your career, we offer abundant technical and soft-skills training year-round covering the cost of most certification and development initiatives. And we make every effort to promote from within.

And where would we be without a sense of fun? It is, after all, one of our core pillars. We want everyone to enjoy themselves in the workplace and encourage attitudes that foster innovation, creativity and happiness.

 

Caring for Our People

We don’t just tell our staff how much we value them. We show it with an extensive benefits package, quarterly incentives and annual retirement contributions.

Additionally, we have a wide array of employee recognition programs, such as service awards and a caught in the act program. The centerpiece of our commitment to employee well-being is the Long View Career Life Plan (CLP). Our people meet regularly with their leaders to assess life achievements, career goals, training and marketable skills.

Everyone needs to let their hair down once in a while, and Long View makes a point of filling its employees’ social calendars. We throw some of the best corporate events around — including holiday galas, weekly get togethers  and round ups.

Perhaps most importantly, we look after our people, offering support and compassion in dealing with life’s problems. Our family atmosphere has become the hallmark of our company.

What Did You Learn Today?

We don’t just pay lip service to professional employee training and development, we go out of our way to provide it. At Long View, we have our own Learning and Development group that maintains our employee development plan and actively seeks out certification opportunities, creates training programs in emerging technologies, and offers abundant technical and soft-skills training courses for our employees year-round — all on the company dime.

Technology never stands still. It is always evolving. We want to make sure we are growing and evolving at the same pace, and that’s why Long View supports employee training and development in a flexible learning environment. We offer technical, soft-skills, and leadership training through various methods — including live and remote classrooms, e-learning, webinars, conferences, mentorship, and task forces.

And, yes, career advancement is something we take very seriously. Our Leadership Development Program (LDP) is one of the programs we are most proud of. Designed around the leadership principles of vision, alignment and execution, the LDP provides classroom learning combined with peer and management discussion, practical experience, challenges, videos, games, and group activities. Lots of development, but even more importantly, lots of fun is had along the way in our leadership journeys.

    I have been working at Long View Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've only been with Long View for a couple of months but the culture is fantastic. Every day the leadership team is focused on Long View's people; it is very evident during this turbulent time of Covid-19.
    Really appreciate how involved the Human Resources team is in every aspect of the business.

    Cons

    Honestly, there really aren't cons. There are growing pains but every organization has growing pains.

    IT Site Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Long View Systems in December 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. After a couple weeks the recruiter called and scheduled a phone interview. Then, was asked to come back for an in-person. After the in-person I was asked to complete another phone interview with another site manager. This part of the process took about 2 weeks. I didn't hear anything for 3 weeks so I reached out to the recruiter and she said they were still in the interview process. Waited another 2 weeks and was told the manager was still reviewing. Waited 4 weeks to reach out again since I saw the job re-posted and received crickets. Thankfully, I've moved on to a position of influence at another firm. I'd never recommend Long View Systems. Be careful. They'll just string you along and then ghost you.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were about "fit" with the company and overall how I would handle certain situations.   Answer Question
