    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, very self-directed work. Lots of autonomy in the field, no micromanagment. Great work place for during school, and has lots different channels to potentially grow in.

    Cons

    Can't think of much for Dyson. Except Dyson Canada is fairly flat structure in terms of vertical movement. need to move to head office in England to vertically grow or go into other channels

    Advice to Management

    Great management here in Canada! Has a solid team of support, really don't have much things to say about the management other than keep up the good work. Dyson really live up to its name in terms of being a global company!

    Digital Media Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dyson (Toronto, ON) in December-2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter from Texas set some times and days for which to have a phone interview. I replied with my selection, then later said she's busy, can we reschedule to the 26th. Fine.

    Come the day of the 26th, she calls 30 mins early and leaves a message saying, If you're still interested, then call me back. Seems to me she's implying that I'm not interested in the role anymore? Also, calling her back would mean I incur long distance charges. I replied with an e-mail mentioning the interview time we agreed upon. She called back at the agreed upon time and asked me if I worked at Habitat for Humanity, I said no... turns out she had the wrong resume in front of her... then she lets me know the position is contract. I asked if it said contract on the job description, she said no. I was under the assumption that it was full-time, but no, it's contract. She said Dyson doesn't want to waste people's time with misunderstandings and assumptions that contract positions can go permanent. That's fine, but they surely wasted my time by not putting in the job description that the position is contract.

    So in short, she re-rescheduled the interview, called 1/2hr early, had the wrong resume in front of her, then said the position is contract when the job description had no mention of it being contract. I've elected not to continue in the interview process.
