    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel in July 2015.

    Interview

    Similar to what other have described, I got an email over a month after I applied requesting additional information. I spoke with the recruiter a week later. The recruiter sounded very satisfied with my responses and I was told to get in touch if I hadn't heard from them. After about 10 days, I sent an email and a week later I called the recruiter and left a voicemail. In the mean time I also applied to some other positions, which were all rejected a couple of days after I called. I'm not sure what I did wrong! I was/am very eager to work for Bechtel and really liked the position.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bechtel (Tempe, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Attended a university career fair. I was first asked to talk about the program with a campus ambassador being passed onto a recruiter who scheduled my interview. The interviewer was disinterested. It was the end of the day and I could tell my her level of energy that there was no way I could get the position. She had already checked out and was only going through the motions. It was very hard to maintain a conversation. She was more interested in her notes and the computer than me.
