    I worked at TransCanada as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good vacation and good benefits

    Cons

    Incompetent people are promoted to management by the incompetent manager. There are some incompetent managers in IS and they are close together. I don't understand why they get to fire other people. Some people didn't work much at all because of their close relationship to the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out incompetent managers in IS and let people who know what they are doing do the work.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at TransCanada.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through a job board. Two rounds of phone interviews, each one an hour with two different project managers. The interviews took place in the late spring for a summer internship and apparently I was one of 6 or 8 chosen to conduct phone interviews out of 40 online applicants.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly classic interview questions...Hardest question: What was a situation in which you faced a problem and you had to choose from a number of different solutions? how did you choose this option?

      Also: Make sure you convince them that you are interested in a career in this industry post-internship. That will go a long way.
