    Interior Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at KBR.

    Interview

    first time i ever had a group interview and the questions were more for personality and management type positions. it felt more like a game show due to the fact they were interviewing six people at a time and the answers were limited to time due to the fact they had only one hour for the six people. Also at the very end they ask salary requirements verbally so everyone had to tell them what salary they were expected to be paid.

    There are two parts. The first part is the manager's interview. He first described about the group and then asked me some question about fan noise, pipe noise and valves. Then let me describe my work. The manager did not look at my resume. The second part is the Senior's interview. He looked carefully at my resume and asked some relative questions which are not difficult.

    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at KBR (Houston, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Extremely long process, 4 months from employee referral to decline. was told that if I wanted the position, it was mine, and to let the interviewer know within a few days if I wanted the position. I did just that, waited 3 days and confirmed that I wanted the position. 2 months later, after I had put my job search on hold, was told that I was still being looked at, and to "keep in touch". Left a bad taste in my mouth, and I don't really know if I would want to work for someone like that. I could understand if it was a "we'll call you" or something like that, but to blatantly say that if I want the position, that I could have it, and then two months later say I hadn't been forgotten and was still being looked at? Really?

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't many questions past clarifying my resume. He literally said that my resume was what he was looking for and didn't try any stereotypical "what's your biggest weakness" etc questions   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't seem like the right place to work, I had already accepted another position. They snoozed, and lost.
