I applied online - interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in April 2012.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in January 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was set up quickly and on site. However, the start date was not clear and it took then 2 plus weeks to give me an official start date. During the interview process I was interviewing for 3 different positions not knowing which one I would be selected for.

Construction Intern Interview

Construction Intern

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

Interview Details – Was referred to a college recruiter through a company contact, short pre-interview asking about college extracurriculars, grades, career aspirations, etc. Recruiter informed me about possible job placement, was contacted later by hiring manager for a full interview. Took an hour, went over quite a bit. Nothing too strenuous or really head-scratching, just a lot of behavioral questions.

Assistant Electrical Engineer Interview

Assistant Electrical Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in December 2013.

Interview Details – I received a phone call to set up a phone interview with a HR representative. This phone interview was nothing to strenuous. Basically expect the typical HR questions that allow them to gauge your interests and where you would like to be within the company. Following this interview, I was contacted by a group with a location that they believed fit me the best. An on-site interview was scheduled. This interview wasn't so typical. First, you go out to lunch with a couple of younger guys to essentially break the ice. Following this, you give a presentation on yourself and how your past experiences apply to the position. Lastly, you are asked several questions in regards to your resume - again, nothing too strenuous. Overall an easy interview process if you can get over giving a presentation.

Interview Question – There weren't any really difficult questions.   Answer Question
