They also asked why I was interested in working for the company. They emailed back after one whole week and informed that I did not get a offer.

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in November 2011.

Interview Details – Interview process consisted of two stages. A primary local event was held where one on one interviews were conducted - engineers experienced in the field were brought in and allowed for easier communication between the two parties. Some candidates were selected for secondary interviews via telephone for a more technical interview - the attention of the interviewers was hard to get, so don't expect any give and take. It seemed as they had better things to do and hiring was just a chore.
