    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bechtel (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    2 hours technical plus competency questions with the Mechanical head and the Human resources head who were quite friendly. Each asking a few questions, and cutting each other off at times which confused me at times. Some questions were surprising as they did not match the job description. Had the job description been more clear it would have been easier to prepare. I did not receive any feedback at the end even though I emailed and asked for feedback a few times.
