      Very competitive... You have to work hard and make it through training... You definitely earn your job! The pay is good... Lots of mandatory overtime... The training is 6 weeks for call taking then after 10 months of call taking you have to pass dispatcher training. All training is paid. Overtime pay is nice. 25 years to retire... The values are courtesy professionalism and respect. Very rewarding experience! Lots of room to grow within the company...


      Very stressful... Long Hours... If you don't pass training you are terminated. Probation is 18 mths must pass both training... Very difficult job and you must have tough skin.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.


      Mobile Mortgage Specialist

      Looking to make a career change into HR. And would really like to work at Ontario Power Generation (OPG). Any insights or tips on the OPG interview process?


      Digital Communications

      I completed a writing test for a well-known agency and an curious to know what will the employer look for? I feel good about it though!
