    I have been working at Brown and Caldwell part-time

    Pros

    The people that work at Brown and Caldwell are top-notch folks. Very nice to work with and good at their jobs.

    Cons

    Seems that when the company needs a new high level position, they look to poach from outside the company far more than promoting from within.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Brown and Caldwell.

    Interview

    After submitting my application material I was quickly contacted to set up a phone interview with a recruiter. The phone interview was approximately 20 minutes long and consisted of questions regarding my qualifications. Approximately 3 weeks later I went to the local office for an in-person interview (~ 1 hour) with the hiring manager and 2 other engineers. The in-person interview focused mainly on behavioral scenarios. After another 9 weeks, I was told by HR that the office decided to go with an internal hire.
