    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Shaw Group (Charlotte, NC) in May 2008.

    • Original salary offered was not enough to make me move for the job. I had to say no a few times before enough money was offered to get me to leave the competitor & go work for Shaw.   Answer Question

    I said no about 3-4 times until they called & said they were offering me the absolute maximum for that position.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Shaw Group.

    Interview

    I didn't really have much of an interview for the current position I am in as I started with this company as an intern for 6 months and they gave me a full time job as a coordinator. Though I am fairly familiar with the interview process -- its usually a pretty quick process. You will usually get a phone call after 2-3 weeks after applying and have a brief (1hour) interview. The interviewer will ask you about previous postitions, schooling, family - to get familiar with you and to also ask about your willingness to travel and relocate because you will be doing a lot of that in this company.
