    I have been working at The Kleinfelder Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally a solid company. Salaries are competitive. Decent opportunities exist for driven individuals. National footprint allows for cross-country mobility for employees interested in relocation.

    Cons

    Kleinfelder, within individual offices, has a tendency to focus on one industry at a time which leaves it vulnerable to market fluctuations. Hiring binges and staff reductions seem to be the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget where your offices are located. Marketing within urban centers nearby Kleinfelder offices is generally overlooked. 'Local' work could help fill the void the when market-related fluctuations are the norm, in addition to instilling pride in ones own community.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Kleinfelder Group (Charlotte, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with people from HR, engineering and administrative departments. A group interview with Q&A from all three. I supplied each with a hard copy of my resume and summary of past duties. We discussed what the position entailed, what the company mission and personality consisted of. We discussed my past work history and what I liked and disliked about my former position.
