    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Black & Veatch (Manhattan, KS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I talked with a representative at a university career fair. Then had a next-day interview. I was told that I would be contacted within two weeks with either a yes or a no. A month later and I still haven't heard anything from them. Pretty typical of a large company, but still not a good feeling.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, MO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of mostly behavioral questions. There were a few technical questions, but only after I had shown knowledge of whatever topic was being talked about. I had 6 thirty minute interviews back to back. It seems like a long process, but the professionals were all very down to earth and seemed genuinely interested in me.
