To the person who has followed up an answer on the rate they were told on site, there is no one on site who will know what rate you're on. Only O'Neill & Brennan staff will know. What the client pays us, and what you receive are two different values, there is no way anyone on site will know, I'd suggest you change your 'answer' below to something factually correct otherwise you are misinforming people that read it. You need to speak to your regional office on this and keep a record of your agreed rates. Emailed confirmation is a good method for avoidance of any doubt.
Preparing for an interview at O’Neill & Brennan is the same as preparing for one anywhere else. You should know your CV off by heart, practice explaining parts of it, research the company, consider answers from common interview questions and examine the job description.
