    Pros

    It's a good place to get experience if you have no qualifications for the job you are applying for, they will hire anyone with a pulse to do any job.

    Cons

    They have a lot of turn over so the people you are working with rarely know what they are doing and the managers are not qualified to manage people or develop software so they aren't really of much help. It's just a lot of friends/family of the owners playing politics to try to get by

    Advice to Management

    None, but to the rest of the staff, get some experience and get out, there are a lot of tech jobs in Calgary it's a booming industry, they all pay better and treat their employees better

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PBS Systems.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy and smooth. Intro interview with HR, interview with supervisor the following week, then a job offer a couple days later. Unfortunately what HR had told me and what the supervisor had told me regarding flexibility were different (HR: start 7am, Supervisor: start 7am or as late as 8pm ).

    The offer included no vacation time for the first year. I requested 1 week vacation for the first year and a flexible start time for late morning (based on the supervisors information) in a counter offer. These requested items were left open ended and only conversations were being requested so it would be a fair and equal negotiation. Once the counter offer was sent, they immediately retracted the offer.

    They do not seem to be flexible as they stated and offers seem to be non-negotiable based on my experience.
