    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at KBR in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long process, 4 months from employee referral to decline. was told that if I wanted the position, it was mine, and to let the interviewer know within a few days if I wanted the position. I did just that, waited 3 days and confirmed that I wanted the position. 2 months later, after I had put my job search on hold, was told that I was still being looked at, and to "keep in touch". Left a bad taste in my mouth, and I don't really know if I would want to work for someone like that. I could understand if it was a "we'll call you" or something like that, but to blatantly say that if I want the position, that I could have it, and then two months later say I hadn't been forgotten and was still being looked at? Really?

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't seem like the right place to work, I had already accepted another position. They snoozed, and lost.

If you thought KBR was only about government contracts in Iraq, think again. Probably most widely known as the sole government contractor serving the US military in Iraq (and former subsidiary of oilfield services giant Halliburton), KBR provides a wide variety of engineering, construction, and maintenance services to clients around the world. As the US begins winding down its presence in Iraq, the company is devoting more of its time to designing and building liquefied natural gas projects, chemical plants, and other facilities. KBR also manages infrastructure projects... More
