    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bechtel Marine Propulsion (West Mifflin, PA).

    Interview

    Overall this was a very laid back interview. You will interview with anywhere from 1-5 managers depending on how many jobs are available at the time. As others mentioned, you get your own hotel room and the managers come to you for a 40 min interview. This process is fast and furious as 40 min is not nearly enough time, so make sure you can sell yourself quickly. About half of the interview consists of the manager letting the candidate know about the team focus area and daily duties (which is awesome). At the end of each interview session you will be prompted with a technical question in order to test your ability to problem solve under pressure. I was extremely happy with the process and was very impressed with the way that they portrayed the company.
