    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler (Chantilly, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I scheduled an interview and had the option of doing an in-person interview or a phone interview depending on my availability. I chose in-person since the office was located near where I was at the time so I drove to the office where I was escorted inside by someone who was not doing my interview into a conference room. There she went over the company a little and then afterwards, the hiring manager came in and conducted the interview and afterwards, he escorted me out of the office.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler (Elko, NV) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with person in Montreal. Had to reschedule the interview twice due to their inability to convert EST to PST or read the email with the instructions on it. Interviewer did not talk about AMEC at all. I had to offer up why I am good for this position because no questions ever went in that direction. Not much give and take. Very one sided. Did not ask me if I had any questions for them.
