    Positive Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bechtel in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very simple and easy interview. No surprises. If you have answers prepared for the top 15 or so interview questions you would be well prepared. The interview lasted about 40 minutes, haven't heard back from them yet even though it was several weeks ago. One complaint would be that the job description online was not accurate compared to how the described the job in person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview

    Phone interview only for an entry level position. Pretty standard questions, nothing technical. I never had to interview in person before starting the job. As it was entry level there wasn't much else to speak to other than my internship experiences and involvements in college.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview

    Got a call from the HR to schedule a phone interview. The first interview was with the HR and lasted for about 20 min. She later scheduled another phone interview with an engineering manager. This interview lasted for approximately 35 to 40 minutes. No technical questions were asked. They mainly just discussed my resume and what I had done before and explained the details regarding the position they were looking to hire for. It was a pretty straightforward interview.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bechtel (Reston, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted by a recruiter, then had telephone interview, which is followed by an in-person one-on-one. The company is growing and offering good opportunities for professional growth. Benefits are exceptional (20 days PTO), however Bechtel requires new hires to be contractors first so the benefits (401k, PTO, Insurance, etc) are delayed for 1 year. Salary offer was adequate but not competitive.
