I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Black & Veatch.
Interview Details – At the time, I was living in a different state. I got the interview through a contract agency and was not reimbursed for anything. The agency explained that it was a 6 month contract with a chance to "roll over" after that time, but failed to explain that it is NOT common practice with B&V to make the transition right away; it's typically closer to one year and frequently longer than that. There was an initial phone interview and a couple weeks later I met with a couple engineers for maybe 30 minutes in their office. Afterwards, the offer was made by the contract agency.
Interview Question – It was several years ago, so I do not remember specific questions. From what I remember, they were pretty basic and standard questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was not much room for negotiation since the economy was so depressed at the time. I was just thankful to have a job in the same city as my spouse.

I applied online and interviewed at Black & Veatch.
Interview Details – Interview started with a phone interview with my future supervisor. After that I was selected for a face to face interview. I met with 5 other engineers for 30 minutes and the office manager. It was long but they wanted to get to know my experience and why I became an engineer.
Interview Question – Why did you become an engineer? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Black & Veatch in January 2012.
Interview Details – The first step entails the typical HR telephone screen. Expect to chat for 30 minutes to an hour depending on who calls you. A second phone call will either be the hiring manager or HR. A site visit is next where you will be provided an agenda and meet with at least three people. This is a conservative place. This is an engineering firm. Read up on the company and be able to explain why you would like to work for B&V. The site interviews have two objectives, do you have the skills needed to join the team, and will you fit on the team? It's pretty straight forward. Wait a few weeks for a call back.
Negotiation Details – Brief. They have salary ranges and will try and keep to them. Their view is that everyone gets paid fairly. You can try and negotiate, I did, however, understand that the value you bring tot company dictates you rate.
