Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Baton Rouge, LA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Shaw Group in December 2012.

Interview Details – Shaw contacted me for an interview for an internship position in their IT department. During the interview I talk to two different people. The first person I talk to was the main supervisor of the department I was interviewing for and the second was with the person I would be directly under. The questions were mainly focused on my resume and past experience. They asked a a lot about the classes I was taking or have taken and even my familiarity with POs and other financial documents. I ended up not getting the interview but I think it's because I lacked the accounting experience they were looking for.

Interview Question – Give an example of and explain a case study from your corporate finance class that you found most interesting. (After tell them my corporate finance class was my favorite class.)   Answer Question

The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Shaw Group in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was shopped by The Shaw Group. Basically they interviewed me to get information about a former employer and obviously had no intention of hiring. Beware The Shaw Group.

Training Coordinator Interview

Training Coordinator

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Shaw Group.

Interview Details – I didn't really have much of an interview for the current position I am in as I started with this company as an intern for 6 months and they gave me a full time job as a coordinator.
Though I am fairly familiar with the interview process -- its usually a pretty quick process.
You will usually get a phone call after 2-3 weeks after applying and have a brief (1hour) interview. The interviewer will ask you about previous postitions, schooling, family - to get familiar with you and to also ask about your willingness to travel and relocate because you will be doing a lot of that in this company.

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

Training Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Shaw Group.

Interview Details – I was called in for a first and second interview. The interview questions were pretty standard and the individuals conducting the interviews were very laid back. Seemed like a friendly and good work environment.

Interview Question – None of them were surprising or difficult. Read any article about normal interview questions and you will be fully prepared.   Answer Question
