    Pros

    The people who work there are all mostly really nice, very helpful and very friendly. The company gives high importance to fitness - people run and bike regularly (there's a really nice bike room). The company provides a fully equipped kitchen, which is nice - there are salads, sandwiches and wraps that you can make for yourself. There's also fruits and yogurt and pop etc but it all gets boring eventually. It's good nonetheless - saves the effort of packing a lunch.

    Work itself was quite structured - tasks were mostly well defined and I was helped whenever I needed it, be it from my team or from other teams.

    Cons

    The pay could be better - not everyone enjoys the benefits that the company enforces on everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the sweet work! And maybe pay a bit more and cut the benefits down - not everyone enjoys the benefits!

    Manufacturing Engineer Co-Op Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Point Grey Research (Richmond, BC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very casual and pleasant. Met with my prospective manager as well as two other members of the team. Asked about general experience in programming and hardware, as well as what technical experience I had with projects. One or two questions expanded on my personality and interests. Most of the process involved giving me problem solving situations and analyzing my thought process and solutions; they would provide hints or additional information if I got stuck. The whole process took around 40 minutes.
