    I worked at Practical Environmental Consultants FAX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a small company, so everyone gets sorta close. Also, you get to learn the environmental consulting industry from many different angles. You learn CAD, technical report writing, field work and generally see the big picture. The owner is very understanding and as long as its reasonable and he likes you, tries to accommodate to your needs, both personal and professional.

    Cons

    Its a small company, so everyone pretty much knows your business. You can hear everyone talking in the office, so you know what problems people are experiencing. I was not at all impressed with the training. You get thrown in with little knowledge and are expected to succeed. Some strive in that way, but not me.

    Advice to Management

    Advancement is as-needed. If things are busy, they need more help and you have proved yourself to be capable, you will be given more responsibility and usually a raise to compensate.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Practical Environmental Consultants FAX (Schaumburg, IL).

    Interview

    I applied through their website and I got a call within a couple days to set a time for me to come in for an interview. After one interview with a senior geologist and the owner of the company, the receptionist was told to send me a formal application to fill out, and within a couple days I received an offer. They didn't ask me much about my experience because i was straight out of college. They talked about the job I was interviewing for and asked about my field camp.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was straight out of college and I didnt try to get more than what was offered. I was happy to have a job in my field.
