    Pros

    TransAlta had a good benefit program, great vacation, decent pension, good company culture, and overall a is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Going through major changes right now due to the coal phase out happening in Canada. Could be downsizing some departments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TransAlta.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiate your salary, I got more than market dictated.
