    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at KBR in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had one all day on-site interview. They arranged and paid for my hotel room the night before. All the people with which I interviewed were very pleasant, very willing to answer questions, and seemed genuinely interested in seeing whether it would be a mutual fit. Several that had been with the company for decades were very open about discussing the transitions and changes the company had endured in its various forms.

    Technical Professional- Mechanical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at KBR in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I'd applied for the job through their website. A month afterwards I got a call inviting me for the interview the following week where they covered the flight and limo expenses. I interviewed with 3 members of the static group individually (I believe there were: a technician, the principal engineer, and somebody even higher in that group). All interviews were very "informal" I should say. They wanted to know a little bit more about my background, so I told them; and I basically ended up asking most of the questions which they were more than willing to answer them. I honestly thought I was going to end up being super intimated, but fortunately that was not the case. It was like having a conversation with professionals in the same field. So overall, best interview I've had thus far!
    PS: Got an offer a few months after the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at KBR.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process is extremely tedious. Due to the lack of jobs available, it is likely that you will never hear from them. You submit your application on their website and try to keep in touch with them.
