    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at American Bureau of Shipping.

    Interview

    Extremely lengthy, Interviewers were not honest about the details of the position. I was told details about the position that pertained only to the "favorites" that already worked there. Intimidation tactics were used which made for a very uncomfortable interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Bureau of Shipping (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had an interview with the agency, then a phone interview with the company, then interviewed with the immediate supervisor before being interviewed by department head. Pleasant, conversational. Was warned by the recruiter and the immediate supervisor that the department head could be difficult, but did not find him so. I brought sample work to show, which seemed to impress them. I inserted humor where possible and kept it light but businesslike.

    Engineer II Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Bureau of Shipping.

    Interview

    The interview process will be different for each department.
    I was interviewed by the department director and two Managing Principal Engineers. There was only one interview, which was followed by an offer.
    The three men asked several questions that were border-line inappropriate; particularly regarding my marital status, intention to have children and where I "am from".
    There were also questions about why I would want to work at ABS, and I was given a real guilt trip about committing to the company "for life."
    The interviewers kept stressing that the good work (ensuring the safety of vessels) that ABS employees are responsible for makes up for the lower pay.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any family here or kids in school that will keep you in the area?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The compensation offered was considerably lower than what I expected, and what is normal in the area for my background. I countered with details and negotiated a slightly higher salary.
