Mission: To deliver bold solutions, quality management, high-level service, and innovative technology to our client partners.
I worked at Burns & Wilcox (Less than a year)
Open-minded to change, mostly younger staff. Can listen to personal music when at desk. Upper management recognizes work of front-line staff
In need of cultural diversity training, upper front-line staff and Mangers take advantage of positions. Staff takes dress code too lightly. Lack of diverse hiring.
The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burns & Wilcox (Toronto, ON) in June-2017.
Submitted and application online, and was sent an email about two weeks later requesting an interview.
First interview was maximum 20 minutes, and my interviewer talked for 15 of those minutes. Questions were general and vague, and seemingly unrelated to the job. Had a bad taste in my mouth as I left, but agreed to come back for a second interview when called two days later. Second interview was max 25 minutes, and the questions were oddly antagonistic, while both my interviewers acted as if I was wasting their time. Left the second interview feeling worse than the first, knowing there's no way B&W would be a good fit for me. I was sent a request for a background check and references two days later, but I declined. This in and of itself was a challenging process, as I'd interacted with 7 people at the company, but none were HR, a hiring manager, or seemingly even slightly related to the assistant underwriter position I was applying to.
They need to spend less time talking about profitability and growth and more time talking about what they can do for their employees, clients, and communities.
