    Good pay and benefits. Good long term incentives.


    They promise you the world in your interview. You will soon realize after it's all smoke and mirrors. Micro managing. They don't promote the best candidates. Rules and policies only apply when it is convenient for them.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with the policies they push on employees.

    Senior Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    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.

    Interview Questions


    It was a great offer. I accepted without negotiation.
