    Interview Details

    College program. 2-day interview in Houston, cost of travel/stay covered. Great opportunity with a series of panels (execs, new hires, etc.), a case study followed by a presentation, and formal interview. Test your ability to multitask, work in a group with unexpected interruptions and curve-balls, under pressure. Interview itself was simple- basic stuff and one or two easy technical questions

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview Details

    Initially met recruiters while they were tabling on campus. They requested that I showed up for their information session later that day. The recruiter liked my resume and wanted to interview me. That night I uploaded my resume online. The next day I had an off-campus interview in a local hotel's ballroom. Other students were interviewing on the room at the same time.

    Interview Details

    I reached out to them at our engineering career fair and was able to get an interview from there. They had the first round in person that lasted about 30 minutes and the next round should be a phone call after a few weeks. The first round included a few behavioral questions and questions about your resume.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview Details

    The hire and interview process takes a very long time from initial application to actual sit down interview; seems like jobs are posted only because they have to be - jobs have already been filled by internal candidates. Job seekers are left hanging for months before hearing any news, good or bad

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview Details

    You will speak with several people, most of whom you will never interact with. The people you interview with face-to-face in the office are not necessarily those that you will support. As an Assistant, you are disposable & will be realigned.
