I have been working at TransAlta full-time (Less than a year)
Great colleagues, rewarding work and excellent industry exposure
Endless personel downsizing and benefit cuts while CEO gets $2 million bonus. Managers hire friends from outside rather than competitively post positions.
Advice to Management
Leave the ivory tower and get in touch with your employees.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TransAlta.
Applied on-line - received pre-screen interview over the phone. If you can meet for a face-to-face for interview, make personal connection with manager and you'll get the job.
Negotiate your salary, I got more than market dictated.
