Twenty-Five

  1. Jen: True, although by that criteria, I’m surprised McDonalds isn’t on the list, since Walmart is. Maybe McDonalds training is slipping. šŸ™‚

    Or maybe their benefits suck. heh.

  2. Now that I’ve read the list of the 25 I realize you must work for someone entirely different than what I thought. This whole time I thought you worked for Telus.

  3. Looking at their criteria (the employees know the job, know how to do the job, and actually do it), I’m not surprised at the companies on the list. Wal-Mart has some very stringent training guidelines, and an established reward system in place – so of course they’d make the list. Also, it was a survey of managers, not frontline employees.

    Not to say I’m unhappy with the company I work for – onsidering the state of the market these days, I think it’s doing a bangup job right now.

  4. huh. I was actually really surprised by that list the first time I read it, because I know for a fact that at least three of those companies are ass. (Remember Sue’s fun time with GOT-JUNK? And they’re rated #1…)

    On the other hand, Telus was rated as one of the top ten companies in the country to work for when I was working there — this was announced a month before they slashed our health benefits, and 8 months before laying off 6500 people. I now take those lists with a grain of salt.

  5. Hey, I read that yesterday, too! Do you believe it to be true, though?

    I actually laughed out loud at a few of the “BC’s Best Companies” listed… Knowing the inside scoop, and knowing they couldn’t have possibly and still put a few of the names there.
