      Great office to work in. Good work life balance


      Company has a silo effect. Hard to get stuff done.

        Flexible work/life balance Great like-minded individuals to work with. Plenty of opportunities for growth and development


        Lower pay then private sector Politics between the organizations can trickle down to individuals.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.


      Mobile Mortgage Specialist

      Looking to make a career change into HR. And would really like to work at Ontario Power Generation (OPG). Any insights or tips on the OPG interview process?


      Digital Communications

      I completed a writing test for a well-known agency and an curious to know what will the employer look for? I feel good about it though!
