    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    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.
