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

    Pros

    Growing while maintaining a sense of individualism for their current employees and fostering a culture of strong leadership and a platform for constant professional growth.

    Cons

    None. Continue supplying all employees with the "little" things and the culture will continue to strengthen.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the path forward; however, never sacrifice current employee stability and pay to acquire additional assets.

    Director, Labour and Employee Relations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Graymont (Richmond, BC) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a headhunter. The time between when they contacted me and my first interview was longer than I expected, but it was also the holidays, so it was understandable. The Company had me meeting with a lot of people, which at first seem strange, but probably not uncommon for a director level role. Even though it took a long time to get to the first interview, once the interviews started the process quickened and I was present an offer pretty quickly. Everyone that I met was nice and accommodating and answered my questions truthfully.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a lot of questions about collaboration and teamwork. It's very important to them that they have the right fit. Now that I'm employed here, I can see why. Everyone gets along well and appear to be rowing in the same direction.   Answer Question
