Our Hiring Process

Our Hiring Process

Pembina has a strong track record of recruiting and retaining a skilled workforce our industry requires.

Our standard recruitment process involves the following steps. Depending on the role, these steps may vary:

The hiring leader and/or the Talent Acquisition team reviews the applications. The candidates who are selected have highlighted the skills, experiences and training that we indicated in the job posting.  

Please note: We receive a large number of applicants and only those with the most relevant skills, experiences and training will progress to the first round interview stage.

If you are selected for a first round interview, a member of our team will contact you either by phone or by email to arrange an interview. These interviews are conducted either virtually using Microsoft Teams, in-person, or sometimes through an email questionnaire. The purpose of this interview is for us to get to know more about your experiences, skills and training, and for you to be able to ask us questions about Pembina. 

In this stage, you can typically expect a combination of questions around why you’re interested in the role and some behavioural based interview (BDI) questions focused on the skills or behaviours that are listed in the job posting. For example, if one of the top requirements is influencing stakeholders, you may be asked about a time you have influenced an important stakeholder, such as a customer or a client. 

Depending on the location and type of role, one or more interviews may take place. It is likely that these will be in-person interviews with two interviewers. The interviewers are typically the hiring leader and another team member, or a member of the Talent Acquisition team.

This interview is about one hour long (although may differ depending on the role), and unless otherwise noted, you can typically expect behavioural based interview (BDI) questions that are related to the skills and experiences necessary for the role. To help prepare for the questions, we recommend thinking through examples you can use for the key responsibilities mentioned in the posting. 

We recommend always having questions prepared to ask your interviewers, including clarifications around the role or the company.

After the interviews are complete, the Hiring team will decide on a successful candidate. The successful candidate will receive a verbal offer of employment followed by a written offer detailing more information around the terms and conditions of employment and the total compensation package being offered. All offers are conditional upon successful completion of pre-employment checks.

Once you have signed the offer, a third-party service will contact you and complete pre-employment checks. These checks will differ depending on the role and location of the role. For specific roles, additional checks such as a drug and/or alcohol test and a drivers abstract may be required.

In advance of day one, you will receive an email from Pembina asking you to complete your online new hire paperwork. You will also hear from us on what you can expect on day one.

You will be part of a new hire orientation session where you will meet other new hires and learn more about Pembina! Once complete, your new leader will ensure a smooth onboarding experience.

Recruitment fraud

Pembina is aware that individuals claiming to represent us have offered interviews and false employment opportunities through emails and phone calls. These individuals will often ask the applicant for personal information or payment.

Pembina does not ask for payment in the recruitment process. Anyone who is offered employment at Pembina is required to first go through a recruitment process, including meeting with us for an interview.

If you receive an email asking you to reply to an address other than one ending with @pembina.com, or you believe you’ve received a fraudulent offer, or if you are unsure, please contact us at [email protected]. We take recruitment fraud seriously and pass all information we receive to local authorities.

Your application remains on file, following the rules outlined in the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (Canada).
