    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview

    3 different phone conversations while still in my last semester of college. Very cordial, no "gotcha" questions. Mainly a review of construction field experience and what you did. No questions about college courses or GPA. Also asked if you were willing to move for your role either immediately or in the future.

    Negotiation

    They offered a decent starting wage, but try pushing for more if you want. They would be open to hearing suggestions and working with a potential hire.

    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.

    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.
