Does there seem to be diversity at EllisDon?

...Very political, zero WBL if you ever want to be promoted, LOW PAY considering their importance as a GC, poor diversity in upper management, and office facilities offer only (bad) coffee and you can't even store food in the fridge....Read More

    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at EllisDon (Canada) in Jun. 2022


    Unsure of the whole process, only did the 1st interview which was 30 minutes. It was pretty straight forward, however she did not tell me much about the role or the company she went straight into asking me questions about my experience. Didn't really sell the opportunity well and came off with a bit of attitude, the way she talked about how EllisDon is focused on having people back in the office made it sound like she was looking down on people who don't want to go back 3-4 days a week. "We're looking for people like us who like being in the office and can be a good fit for the team". "It makes it easier to funnel down the best candidates that we actually want since we're in-office". News flash, barely anyone wants to go back to the office most of the week.
