    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Bellevue, NE) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was done by webcam. I am not familiar with this tpe of interview and would appreciate a one on one meeting, face to face. I prefer to show my work on paper, certificates, degrees, letters of acknowledgement rather than try to answer 4 questions in an alloted amount of time.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult for me or unexpected. What was unexpected was there were only 4 questions and I was being timed per question. On webcam interviews you cannot touch the screen for the next question or timer to record your answer with your fingernail. It has to be the pad of your fingers to work. You don't get a second chance if you make a mistake on the webcam interview.   Answer Question

    Enterprise Architect Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process is very immature, people are continually changing, and not well suited to attract talent. The management more than makes up for HR's shortcomings and inexperience though. Background checks are overly thorough digging up the smallest infraction from 7 years ago and dragging it out to be discussed unnecessarily.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no especially off the wall questions, it was very straight forward.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary control is mostly controlled by the hiring manager (and their director)

    Director, Internal Communications Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Found posting for job on LinkedIn. Was contacted very quickly by external recruiter. Two interviews with external recruiters before I spoke with HR rep from company. All these interviews were via telephone. Did three video interviews (including one with hiring manager) and one more phone interview. The recruiters and HR team were very professional and thorough. The company was fairly quick to respond; the process took awhile mostly due to the large number of interviews (which I didn't mind as I felt it gave me a good feel for who I'd be working with if I accepted a position with the company.) The company is acutely aware of the negatives associated with the location of the corporate HQ (Omaha) and very keen to hire people who want to live there and intend to stay for the long haul.
