    Communications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took about 4-5 months from the time I applied to the time I started. Part of the challenge was getting on people's calendars. I interviewed with about 7 people, all of whom were very nice and professional. HR screened me, then made recommendations to the communications team based on that initial interview. I applied online but was able to put down an employee as a reference. I think you're not only judged by the answers you give but by the questions you ask. Thankfully, the questions I asked sparked other conversations that were very positive and gave me more insight into their challenges and initiatives, and also helped me shape my answers.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions varied depending on people's function, but overall, they were completely fair. Some interviews were more a personal conversation, i.e. getting to know one another. Because this was a very competitive position, I had to find a way to differentiate myself by describing my approach to work and solving problems.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The company pays on the higher side of the salary scale, so no room for negotiation, but I was very happy with what they offered. I wish the vacation policy was better (everyone is required to take a week of PTO over Christmas), but everything else was fair.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bechtel in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Started with a short phone interview and followed with an "interview" in the main office. The phone interview was very brief and was basically gauging interest. The office interview was more of an employee orientation. They read the benefits for the home office to me despite that I was going to be working on site in TN.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview Details

    I met them at an information session on campus. The guy gave me interview for the next day on the spot. The questions were pretty straightforward. It was a 20 minute interview so it was the basic questions like "Give us a time you were in a managerial position." or "Give us a time there was a conflict and tell us how you handled it."
