Advice to Management
The executive management is top notch. They genuinely make an effort to listen to employees suggestions and have done a great job. The management take a very careful, conservative approach which has meant no major mistakes for the company and shareholders.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Vermilion Energy (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in November 2008.
Very thorough and lengthy. I don't think any of the interview process was redundant; however, the hiring process took too long. If I hadn't had my heart set on working there, I likely would have accepted another one of the offers I had.
It was a great offer. I accepted without negotiation.
