    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bechtel National in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite simple. Questions were mostly behavioral and there wasn't much of a technical component at all. They truly just want to know what your interests are so they can put you in a position where you would be most successful.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Manager and lead tag team questions that meant nothing. They don't recognise certifications here and will not pay to renew them when they are due.Very vague on earning potential for job.

    Negotiation

    Poor, They aren't working the hours that were promised at the interview. The salary doesn't pan out to anything.

    Project Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in State College, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bechtel National (State College, PA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Face to face interview for 30 min on campus. Second interview was over the phone by the functional management team. Over the phone interview was more about the role and not really an interview, which was really confusing. I guess the 1st interview determines if you are hire, second interview is not really an interview.

    Interview

    Met for coffee and casually discussed my experience loosely based on my resume as well as my career goals and expectations. Was offered a job by the end of the interview. I had a very good employee referral, something which holds a lot of weight at this company.
