    Cons

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WorkSafeBC (Richmond, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Say you're given a project with a strict deadline and you need to perform quality control on it. Would you check part of it and hand it in on time or would you thoroughly go through it before submitting it at the risk of it being late?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Non-negotiable due to Union determined wage.
