    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Black & Veatch in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen, then phone interview with recruiter. Followed by manager interview then second level manager interview. They apologized for taking so much of my time, but they couldn't get all of them together the first time. I appreciated that explanation, because at first it seemed unnecessary to jump through all those hoops. They were very thorough about the what the job expectations were, which helped me to decide if I was interested in the position.

I did a phone interview with multiple individuals from the corporate office. A few weeks later, I got a call for an in-person interview for the local office. I went in and met with three individuals from the local office. The entire process took about two months.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Black & Veatch in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had four rounds of interviews. All of them were non technical which was the most surprising thing since I had applied for the position of an electrical engineer internship. People were very nice, but it was a standard interview with the standard questions. Confident answers are good. I was asked to drive in for the day. All my interviewers were technical people, I did not have any HR interviews. The last two interviewers seemed to be very young, it must have been a learning experience for them

    Interview Questions
    • Every question was very standard and that was the expected part.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Black & Veatch.

    Interview Details

    During the interview process, I was asked how good my day care was, because I would be expected to work overtime. This was totally inappropriate, if not illegal!

    Interview Questions
    • Are you willing to work as much overtime as it takes to get the job done?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. When I tried, they just told me that anyone coming into the company in this position starts at the bottom of the pay for that position, no matter how much experience you have.
