Any beyonder familiar with Walton International Group? quote:

was trying to apply for a position in this company, but when I googled it many scam type related news came up, especially in Asia,(Malaysia,Singapore) regarding to the edgeworth project in Edmonton.

Is it good company to work for?

Had a buddy working for them probably for 10 years now. Never had an issue, lived in Phoenix, paid well.
No word on scam but I guess anyone can be accused of this if you're in the land development industry and the economy has a down turn. Promises are broken, etc, etc.

Walton is a legit land development company. Pretty decent size player in the Calgary market as well. Can't comment if they're good to work for or not though.

Seems to be a prerequisite for working at Walton.

At least it seems that way when I shared the same office tower with them on 5th.

I briefly dated a girl who worked there. Saw some pics of her with co-workers; very true.

Could be a sign of poor corporate governance.

Does that mean you didn't get the job?

walton has managed upwards of 15000 acres of land between edmonton and calgary. I read elsewhere that they use lots of investors for the land they aquire so with this bankruptcy that is happening with them there could be a lot of investors out money if its true.

Ex-wife worked there. Lots of hotties and yes the parties rocked. I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did.
