Advancement can be a challenge
Testing system for recruitment of positions needs improvement it’s almost to pass the first time and the standardized aptitude tests are kind of pointless.
Nepotism. Especially in my department. We’ve had some people move up simply because they know someone, for instance one girl jumped up in her position despite having no seniority and it’s because her father happens to be the manager in the department...perhaps something like this is unavoidable but it is a sore spot among most people I’m my department and I’m sure it is found in other areas of the company as well
High work volume
Vacation bidding - this can get nasty sometimes but is usually ok.
Advice to Management
Stop giving your kids the answers to tests and be truly objective in the testing and recruitment process.

I was called in for an in-person interview with 2 of the managers within the Finance division. Interview lasted 45mins. Mixed between predetermined behavioural and situational questions. Casual interview settting.
Non-negotiable due to Union determined wage.
