    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Houston, TX) in March 2008.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through a friend. I was called and set up an interview with three levels of management at once. The next day I visited the office and talked with some of my future coworkers. I was offered the job a week later. Then it was at least two weeks before HR and I could come to a deal.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a personality confict you had and how you resolved it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Vacation time was off the table for negotiation. Salary is the only variable. They took my first offer, which was a 20% increase over my last job. They were still working on their process at the time though, so there was a lot of delay finalizing the paperwork. They have that together now.
