    I have been working at Brunel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job security is great! Nice to have a job when oil & gas is on the downturn.

    Cons

    Would have loved to have the account manager negotiate a higher pay rate - manager declined the option.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty may come about if holiday pay and/or vacation pay was included, much like many other contract/temp service agencies.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Brunel (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Brief interview with Brunel's agent and then a three on one interview with Brunel's client. Brunel had me submit both a resume and a CV. Clients looked at both during interview process. Job offer came pretty quick and negotiations were almost painless.

    Interview Questions

    • The client had a real focus on safety and wanted to know about my personal safety culture.
      Also questions about past experience that related to their current project needs. I was making a move from one industry to another and had to demonstrate that I could adapt. I also had to show that my education (MBA) was useful in that industry and that I was valuable ti their team.
