    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mattamy Homes (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    They emailed me on a summer Saturday evening for an interview, which I thought was strange. We had a phone interview the following Monday and it was fine, except they seemed very old fashioned. The interviewer made a few comments about the organizations approach to work that were red flags to me but I accepted a second interview.

    The second interview was fine. I got the impression it is a large, outdated, inflexible, organization that has mediocre work-life balance policies. The person who I would have reported to was good, but the HR rep made me question if it was the type of organization I want to work for. The job sounded interesting but I like my current job, I don't think it would be a good fit for me.
