    The hiring process was pretty straight forward. Good questions, relevant questions and nothing that could be considered a trick. Started with a phone call - interview, face to face with the Procurement Manager, Director of Procurement and HR. Received an offer within three days, but for a junior position. Negotiations took about two weeks and received an acceptable offer.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
