Advice to Management
Continue to value your employees and let them know it!
I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ATCO Electric (Edmonton, AB) in April-2012.
They wait as long as possible to call you after you apply online weeks or even months. If you are actively seeking employment you will this will be the last employer to call you and you will probably have a new job before you hear from them. They will want you to come in on a moments notice then badger you with questions about hypothetical situations that are near impossible to answer without sounding stupid. Then after you have given up on getting the job they will call you after a few weeks and offer you something or they wont bother calling to tell you you weren't selected.
