    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler.

    Interview Details

    I met with HR first and then met with two different process engineers (not together, but one after the other). It was a face to face interview with behavioral questions and technical questions. The technical questions ranged from thermodynamics to fluid flow and mass transfer. You should definitely review thermodynamics if its been a while.

    Interview Questions
    • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
      They asked a lot of technical questions about thermodynamics, fluid flow through a pipe and an distillation column.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.
