    Scheduled interview at the Fall career fair of 2013. The Interview was conducted on campus at the top floor of the Hornbake library.

    Recent University Graduate Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel (Richland, WA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    - Applied on Bechtel's career website to local job postings in my area. A family member in management let me know that they were contacted by another manager that received my resume and that they couldn't take any further action because I was a recent graduate, I had to apply through their Recent Graduate page.
    - Applied to a recent graduate posting and received a call 1-2 weeks later. The HR rep set a time for a phone interview. Had the phone interview and was told I could contact the HR rep through their direct line.
    - Received no response for 2 weeks and attempted to follow up several time in the last two months, leaving voice-mails with my contact information.

    I still have not heard back from Bechtel and have since moved on. It's a shame because I was an eager candidate that is very familiar with the local project and the company overall.
