    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (more than 5 years)


    Company has always looked out for me even as the actual jobs I was performing came to an end. I have transitioned into 2 other positions with no problems.


    None really to speak of... most my time with this company I was overseas... with that being said I did not have to deal with to much bureaucracy.

    Senior Structural Engineer - Oakland Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview Details

    Interview was arranged via an ad on the SEAONC job board. In person interview was over two hours long. The interviewers never asked me any question about my total engineering background. They believe that the projects you worked on 14 years ago make you the engineer you are today. I had other more relevant projects that benefitted the organization than those fro 14 years ago. No technical questions were asked to test the applicants. I felt humilted because they personally attacked me over my work history. The office said they had lots of people working there yet the cubicles were not even furnished.

    Interview Questions
    • There were NO unexpected questions. There were difficult questions that were more like personal attacks.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
