    I have been working at Canadian Solar full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love working here. Almost everyone is really friendly and willing to help. The company is well-managed with awesome work-life balance. There are holiday parties, plenty of free company promo items (T-Shirts, USB drives, caps, etc.). This is by far the best company I have worked at. The company philosophy is great, and Canadian Solar is very well-managed (almost all sales directors have MBA's). The general manager has real leadership, as does the CEO. I am excited to start my career in the solar industry!! (I was formerly in another industry)

    Cons

    None that I can find yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!!

    Interview Details

    Questions about the solar industry. Was challenging, but I appreciated the challenges. Two people present- HR Manager and General Manager. I did my research, and good thing I did. Many questions about what I knew about the company and PV panels. I went through 3 interviews total. Also did a phone interview with the Global Director of Marketing.
