Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Jacobs Engineering in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was called based on the recommendation of a friend for an interview. Was interviewed seperatelly by two. The first one asked, to my opinion, too many private question and the second one was very professional and confident. I did not like that Jacobs is not taking responsibility for their people in bad time with an attitude " we are not the shelter". I believe for a good company and stable society , it it important to keep good people coz they supported the company in good times, but in bad times, they are not good enough.

Interview Question – On a scale from 1-10, how good am I in process simulator   Answer Question

The interviewers were super friendly and welcomy and trying to give you info and advice as much as they could.

To prepare:
-Prepare situations,well summarized.
-Resume organization is important.
-Be simple and confident
-Consult Career services at you school for preparation and support.

After 2weeks, they called me for a visit to the company where I met a young engineer giving me intro about the company ,the environment and kind of work. Also, I received the offer before that visit. They assume you would discuss the offer content when you are in their office.

Good Luck
