    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baton Rouge, LA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shaw Group (Baton Rouge, LA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Shaw Group (Bothell, WA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shaw Group.

    Interview

    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.
