Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – No questions were particularly difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The pay they were able to offer for that particular group was not appropriate for my experience and education level. (They knew this when making the offer and told me so.)

Technical Professional- Mechanical Interview

Technical Professional- Mechanical
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and 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.
