    I have been working at Wawanesa Insurance (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is going through a lot of exciting change and employees have the opportunity to make an impact in the future of the company. Wawanesa truly values its employees and realizes they are the best asset.

    The company has high expectations of its employees and you need to be prepared to work hard but it is acknowledged and supported. The benefits, compensation, and wellness program are fantastic - employees can take Yoga classes during lunch and there are a lot of events around employee appreciation.

    Supporting the community is a high priority for the company as well and employees are encouraged to give back and volunteer at community events.

    Overall it is a really great place to work and I am so happy I chose Wawanesa!

    Cons

    There is a lot of change so you have to be adaptable. Expectations are high but that is necessary for an insurance company to thrive and grow.

    I was called for a phone interview and at the end I was asked to come in for a face to face interview. The interview at the corporate office consisted of two managers asking me multiple questions. I also did some role playing with them.
