Start-up assignments are generally 4 to 5 month assignments. Most assignments will be in Asia with some in North America. A team consists of 5 to 6 people with at least one process engineer and the rest either manufacturing engineers or experienced operations technicians. The team supports the owner's organization in activities such as punch listing, pre-commissioning, commissioning, and initial operation support. The team is directed by experienced personnel with home-office support as needed.

Compensation for start-up assignments can be quite good. While there are different policies depending upon the company and the assignment location, generally you can expect your hourly salary, overtime at a premium, a hardship allowance depending upon location, per diem for living expenses, and some type of completion bonus.
