    Technical Professional- Mechanical Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, DE
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, DE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at KBR in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward - introduction into company and if you know anything about them, then they ask you questions and lastly you ask them questions. Mostly behavioral questions with only a few technical questions concerning if you know basic electrical engineering concepts you'd learn in college and if you had any experience with cables, cable sizing, electrical equipment, etc. The hiring manager is very nice and friendly as well and makes you feel very welcomed and wanted.
