Company follows an annual evaluation process on a 1-5 scale. Managers are not allowed to give out many 5s, in fact they push a bell curve of 15% - 2/ 60%-3 / and 20%-4. 5s are rare and managers are strong discouraged from giving them out. 3s get maybe 3.5% annual raise. 2s Get maybe ..... 0% raise. 4s get 5% and 5s get max of around 7%. It can get frustrating and there are strong unions in the trades as a result. Less

Average raise is actually 2% for a 3 rating. A 4 rating gets almost a 3% raise. And rating are done to a bell curve so getting a 5 is almost impossible. Less

1 Answers

The typical question of 'Where do you see yourself in 5 years'? What do you want to do / what can you do? Experience and schooling? Personality questions. Pretty sure there were some Star Wars references and other pop culture questions thrown in.

1 Answers

I've learnt to answer honestly and not stress out from these questions. The truth is 'I don't know'. I do know however that I want to experience a wide diversity of projects and roles. I want to grow. I want to try 'X' activities or grow 'X' skills and I want the team that can help me do that. I'd potentially like to PM or be in a supervisor role, however I'm not fixated on a specific title. Less
