    I have been working at Nordion (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is made up of amazing and caring people. They are very nice to work with, thoughtful and always meant well. Compensation is very well (as compared to local living standard). Business model is solid and the executives are very down to earth. They are flexible as well. It also provides opportunities to grow and learn and provides cross-function rotation program. All of these are greatly appreciated.

    Cons

    My personal preference is for places with warmer weather. Ottawa is too cold for me in the winter. Though this job is solid but I longed for something more exciting. Also note that this company was acquired a few years ago. So not sure about current culture etc.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordion.

    Interview

    Panel of two people, Human Resources manager and Quality Assurance Manager. They took turns asking behavioural type questions, when have you worked for someone with conflict, communication questions, quality questions, good manufacturing practices. After interview, a technical test was given which took about half an hour. Questions - why is quality is important, radiation half-life question. The panel made me feel very comfortable. They clearly were happy working for Nordion, which they gave their reasons why.
