I worked at ScanlineVFX full-time (More than 5 years)
Great place to work, health care package to contract and employees
45 hours weeks and 5 Stat holidays only paid
I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at ScanlineVFX (Vancouver, BC) in December-2013.
Listened to owner talk about how great the company was, watched Scanline reel. They asked very little about my experience or skills, and showed me their cafeteria that had to be called the "nightclub" - it looked like an '80's gay bar set for an after school special.
Lots of smiling and nodding and one word approval noises "wow!", "amazing!" etc really seemed to help.
Brief mention of no OT until after 45 hours a week because they're pretending to be a high tech professional company and so exempt from BC labour law. Every other studio in town has been busted for this, but I guess nobody told Scanline.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
