The Top 5 tips for nailing the all-important phone interview

Intelex’s Professional Development Office (PDO) is excited to kick off a series of blogs every other Wednesday that highlight the Intelex hiring and onboarding processes, as well as trends in recruiting and learning and development.

Intelex has received a lot of attention recently. After being selected as a Greater Toronto Top Employer, a Great Place to Work (fifth in Canada), and a three-time recipient of the Deloitte Fast 500 Tech Companies honour, among all the other awards that have come our way in the last 12 months. We think it is important to help individuals who are very interested in the company, through the Intelex recruiting process, and that’s why we’ve launched this series of blog posts.

For this entry I would like to discuss The Phone Interview. Most candidates will be interviewed on the phone prior to being brought in for an in-person interview. The process is generally fairly … Read more...

Thanks for making Intelex such a great place to work

Hello Everyone!

In case you haven’t heard yet, Intelex was selected as the fifth “Best Place to Work” in Canada last night by the “Great Place to Work Institute.” Check them out here.

This is yet another great award for Intelex and totally a result of our exceptional culture and the great people we have here. We placed 5th out of 50 medium companies that were ranked, and many hundreds more that applied.

We also were one of six companies in 100 that won a special “Camaraderie” award!

I want everyone in the organization to feel free to be very proud of this achievement. I can’t stress enough that it is all about our Intelexians and how each one works with their colleagues, shares ideas, creates an open and trusting environment, and cultivates a workplace that is a pleasure to come to everyday.

The award is printed today in … Read more...

Intelex named Canada’s 5th best place to work!

Wow! We’re kinda pumped. For starters, it’s been an amazing year for Intelex, award-wise. From being named one of Canada’s 50 Best companies, to being singled out as one of the best GTA employers on two exclusive lists in the Globe and Mail and Toronto Star, the accolades have just kept coming, and last night was no different.

The Great Place to Work Institute held its major 2012 Best Workplaces in Canada gala, and presented the 100 best organizations to work for in Canada, singling out 50 medium and 50 enterprise organizations. As announcers came around to counting down Canada’s top 10 organizations, we were on the edge of our seats! Then came the big moment as we were named Canada’s fifth best place to work!

On top of that, Intelex was handed an exclusive award for camaraderie, which only five other companies of the 100 winners … Read more...

Intelex named one of Toronto’s top employers…again!

The accolades just keep piling on. Only a week after being singled-out as one of Toronto’s top employers in the Globe and Mail, Intelex was ranked 15th out of 35 of the Greater Toronto Area’s best employers in yet another employment award competition, the results of which were published in the Toronto Star last week.

Organized by Queen’s School of Business and Aon Hewitt, the Best Employers in the GTA competition evaluated workplace culture, benefits, retention, and most importantly, employee engagement. According to contest coordinators, the results of this study were influenced heavily by a survey conducted to determine how employees actually feel about their employer.

“The real litmus test of whether or not an organization is a Best Employer lies with the employees themselves,” explained Neil Crawford, Aon Hewitt’s study leader. “This study goes beyond satisfaction (how much I like things here) and commitment (how much I want to be here) to measure … Read more...

Intelex named one of Toronto’s top employers!

Only weeks after being included on Deloitte’s list of the 500 fastest technology growing companies in North America, Intelex has another accolade to shout about. Today we were included in The Globe and Mail’s list of the Greater Toronto Area’s Top Employers 2012!

That’s another great feather to add to our cap. The write-up in the Globe indicated we are 118 employees strong, but since that data was collected earlier this year, we have actually grown to over 150 employees! And as we continue our trend of impressive year-over-year growth, we’re poised to leave that number in the dust in 2012.

On that note, we’re hiring! If you live in or near the Toronto area, don’t miss the opportunity to land a great job at a great company.… Read more...
