    I have been working at Gallagher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Role is challenging but rewarding. Truly feel that my direct Manager values my input and ideas and is dedicated to improving our department.

    Office Perks - Corporate Office has a free gym on site with great work out classes offered. Coffee bar and sushi bar in cafeteria. Nice outdoor work spaces and either a treadmill or bike desk on every floor.

    Cons

    For corporate headquarters, you will need to live in the suburbs or have a car. It's difficult to get to from downtown.

    Ar Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gallagher (Calgary, AB) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted late on a Thursday by email. Asked to interview Monday at 8 AM. Sent a response asking for confirmation of address. Didn't get a response so I called and left a voice mail. No response. Now I'm wondering if I still have an interview. I have a current job and I actually told my boss I was interviewing. Long story but there are reasons she was very understanding about this. So..I called again. Asked receptionist if I should still come in. She didn't know. Shortly after received a confirming email. On Monday when I arrived shortly before 8 the building was locked. Went for a coffee and came back. This time building was open but elevators were locked. Waited in lobby and and asked a passerby if she could assist me getting to the floor I needed to be on. She had me get off a floor earlier and wait in a hallway?? Ok. Then HR came down and unlocked area on that floor and we started the interview. Shortly into she says the position is PT. She says ad stated that. I told her I wasn't interested in PT. I asked are you sure the ad says PT? Yes she says. Ok. Back to work I go..check the ad. FT. So I sent her an email. No response or apology for wasting my time. The position reported to the President so I left him a voicemail.
