    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bechtel (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online, first interview was a couple months later. Interview process took about 5 months - 2 phone interviews and one onsite interview. Most of the phone questions were behavioral type questions to understand how you would fit in that role. Not too many technical questions. Final on site interview was more of you meeting the team to see if there was a fit.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bechtel (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    College program. 2-day interview in Houston, cost of travel/stay covered. Great opportunity with a series of panels (execs, new hires, etc.), a case study followed by a presentation, and formal interview. Test your ability to multitask, work in a group with unexpected interruptions and curve-balls, under pressure. Interview itself was simple- basic stuff and one or two easy technical questions

    Interview Questions

    • Case study puts you to the test. Working in a group of 4-5 (qualified or not) candidates. Given a 2 hour time limit during which each team member is sequentially taken out for 30 minute interview.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Would require reloaction and received a similar position closer to home with better salary.

    Project Controls Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bechtel (Houston, TX) in June 2013.

    Interview

    One on one interview. Also a small project and presentation. They asked many questions... most of them were standard. They are big on personality and less about what you know when you are coming out of college. I'm sure it depends on who you interview with but most people at Bechtel are straightforward and not too intimidating.
