    Management Consultant Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    I received an email asking what date and time were best to discuss the position, more about BV, and a little bit more about myself. I mentioned a particular day the following week during the morning and set aside previous involvements to make room for this interview. After 15 minutes of waiting for our scheduled time, I sent an email asking if our call was still on. I received a reply stating that they were too busy and would prefer to reschedule to later that evening at a particular time. When that time came, again, there was no call. I sent another email a half an hour after our second scheduled time to follow up one last time. The lack of punctuality is the most disturbing part coming from a company that is deemed as proclaimed as BV.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Contacted by HR for initial screening. Then gave me a list of locations to choose from, then followed by a techincal interview on phone. Talked to an engineer from the specific location and he asked about my experience and why I wanted to switch and what I wanted to do. Then I got a call for onsite interview. They requested change of my availability to match their specific needs. Then flew me in for a interview.
    HR on the interview panel was not even present during the interview.
    The day after the interview they say they do not have a need for the position in the team and sent a reject.

    *If they did not have the need for a location why did they put me through all this effort and then reject for no reason.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, KS) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I met with them a couple times at an info-session and the STEM fair on our campus. They asked me for an interview the next day. I received an email about a week later saying they were still reviewing all of the candidates with the hiring managers. A couple days after that, there was an email with an invite to the on site interview, which was 5 interviews in a row; each about 30 minutes a piece. Very relaxed and very simple.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Overland Park, KS) in September 2017.

    Interview

    RUN! I can accept that statistically we all get turned down for more jobs than we get interviews and offers. I can even appreciate that sometimes things dont go beyond a phone screen. But when the experience is so amateur and unprofessional then you learn it's just not a place you'd ever want to work. So, phone screen #1 the recruiter states he mixed up time zones. Recheduled, phone screen #2 no call no show recruiter again. Excuse: I lost my phone over the weekend. So you're not given a phone at your desk? Rescheduled, phone screen #3 no call no show, no response. I email asking to be handed to another recruiter since he clearly has something happening in his personal life that's causing this behavior. We connect, he apologizes, we talk about multiple HR spots, he states there are internal moves, he'll know the net the following week, we connect again, and he says he'll put my resume in for two of the open spots. Then the tumbleweeds start rolling by. I follow up. He states he'll send me an invitation for a phone screen with the two Ops heads the role would support. Tumbleweeds. Then two weeks later the canned autoresponse, "thanks but no thanks" comes. Just run. There is no integrity to this company or their recruitment procedures. If I was not qualified then I understand. If I am, and I'm vetted by the recruiter and then he takes this very misleading and deceptive course then to be quite honest, thank God I didn't get the job.
