    Mechanical Design Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel Plant Machinery (Monroeville, PA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    After the WVU Career Fair, BPMI reached out for a phone call to learn more about myself and to answer a few questions. After a week or so I then scheduled for an onsite interview with BPMI. They compensate the interviewee for travel expenses post interview, so keep track of expenses and miles traveled! The interview itself takes place within the main building, but not past the interior security screening entrance within the building. There is a conference room attached to the lobby within which the process took place.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. I was asked if I knew what the company did and then was asked questions about my resume experiences. Not much was asked about my school transcripts, more of the questions were about hypothetical scenarios and how you would respond. Very friendly interviewers overall and a good experience.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was notified by their HR department that even though I am 3 years out of school I was required to send them an official college transcript ($10) that they did not reimburse for. Extremely odd and unprofessional to make people pay to apply to a job before even being considered. I pulled out of he process as it made he company seem very sketchy.

    We'd like to take this opportunity to clarify our hiring process. Like many companies, we require candidates to submit unofficial college transcripts to be considered for an interview. Some universities provide unofficial transcripts for free; you may wish to contact your college to determine their policy. Official transcripts are not required unless and until we make an offer of employment, and at that point, we reimburse for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred while obtaining these necessary documents.

    We hope this has cleared up any questions you may have about our employment process. We encourage you to read about our long and successful history at BPMIonline.com. We're quite proud of the support we've provided the U.S. Navy for more than six decades.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bechtel Plant Machinery.

    Interview

    Very straightforward interview process. If you're straight out of college with no experience, this may be a little more difficult because you have to talk to human beings about what you've done. It was a simple behavioral interview mostly about my resume.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bechtel Plant Machinery (Monroeville, PA) in March 2018.

    Applied Online. Contacted for a phone interview 1 month later. Phone interview lasted around an hour and at the end he asked me to come in for an on-site interview in Monroeville, PA. On-site interview very organized and long. Initial interview with hiring manager (1 hour), panel interview with 3 managers (1.5 hours), HR meeting (30 minutes). Overall good experience that gives you a thorough understanding of the position but can be draining due to long process.
