      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Bruce Power full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Make you feel you are already hired. Excellent Sugar coating and projection of their culture. Basically, Great sales people story tellers occupying technical and senior leadership positions.

      Cons

      HR third party Sierra Systems recruiters are merely wasting candidates time. As if they are capturing resumes data. No one knows what they will do with our Data and information. Hiring managers at Bruce Power seems literally have nothing to do but probably somehow trying to convince them self or upper management that they are doing something by wasting candidates time over phone and not hiring anyone.

      Advice to Management

      Stop story telling. If you don’t have jobs to offer stop posting on internet and capturing Data. Not sure why HR third party cheap Sierra Systems NDD on board as a complete waste of money and time when there aren’t much opportunities. Control your existing retention of employees first before even thinking of hiring new ones.
