Success! Thanks for posting your review of Burnett Specialists. You’ve done the world some good today.


I haven't had much luck with recruiters in the past but I contacted Burnett's IT department and they really helped. Burnett has an industry understanding that leads in the recruiting area. Michele is one of the most dedicated and talented recruiters that I have had the honor of working with. Her leadership capitalizes on an understanding of both the requirements as well as skills of her recruits. She has an uncanny a... view more

I have been with Burnett Specialists Southeast office for 9 years. Heidi, Brandy and the other employees there are very kind and helpful. I have gained so much knowledge from working Temp work. These ladies are like family to me...keep up the good work.

Searching for a job that compliments your skills as well has all of the cultural and other qualifications you are looking for in an employer can sometimes be very challenging on your own. With the help of Burnett, I was able to find two different companies that I thoroughly enjoyed working for. Within 2 weeks of working with Penny Murray at Burnett, I was able to find a position that fit my skill set and had the work... view more

Acclimating to the Houston Job Market was hard but at least I've found Burnett to be a firm that made me feel at home and comfortable knowing that if there was a job out there for me, I would be considered. My Burnett Specialist, Judy Diamond, placed me in two environments that really met my needs. If you are looking for a temporary contracting assignment or a permanent full-time position, Burnett should be your f... view more

Houston is a great place to work but Burnett Specialists really have the expertise, industry connections and a very individualized, custom tailored approach to help you find and get the position you want. They are the sole reason I was able to look outside my previous career path, evaluate my skill set and experience with a fresh set of eyes, really master my interview with insightful guidance and confidence for my ... view more

June of 2013, I went to Burnett to apply for temp to perm work. I filled out a lot of paperwork and spoke to Jillian. Every week I would call her and e-mail her to let her know I was still available and to find out if she had found anything for me. IF she responded, it was with her telling me to look for employment on my own, etc. and she still didn't have anything for me. On August 19, she sent me an extensive email... view more

Alcon is the worse place to work at. you get a contract of 1 year and six months to get hired . within that time you'll never get approved and or hired until that whole 18 months is up and even then you still have a very slim chance of getting hired. Plus whats worst is that the place is not really, clean room material, people sweating over the product, sneezing on it, nose drippings on product, and Hygiene is unbele... view more
