    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch in March 2020.

    Interview

    Had a short initial screening with a recruiter about 15 minutes long, talked about the position and a couple of standard HR behavioral questions. About a week later I got an email to move forward to the onsite interview. The onsite was about 4 hours, I met with several managers and other engineers. There was one technical interview, diving into specifics about the job I applied for. Others for the most part were just reviewing my resume with a few behavioral questions here and there. Met with HR to review benefits at the end. Two weeks later I received an offer.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, MO) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The process started with a hr person reaching out to me on July 2019.

    The interview went well with a bunch of behavioral questions. It seemed to me she was not very interested in the interview process but I didn’t let it bog me down.

    I sent a follow up email after the interview thanking for the opportunity they gave me. I reached out to them after a few weeks and didn’t hear anything back. I reached out to them multiple times but no response from their end. A single response of yes or no should have sufficed but you chose not to reply. One of the most disrespectful , unprofessional and rude Human Resources department.

    Contract & Operations Manager, Atonix Digital Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Overland Park, KS) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Originally was contacted by a recruiter for two solid days and had two very lengthy phone interviews (over an hour each); had an in person interview and then a Zoom interview with two other members of the team.

    It seemed to go well and the feedback seemed to be great. That was two weeks ago and I've heard nothing. Not a single word. Not a single response to any of my follow-ups.

    I don't know how they treated other candidates, but after the energy and time I invested into this process, I expected, at the very least, to get a "thanks, but no thanks email."

    Honestly, if a company treats people they are recruiting this poorly then I can only imagine how poorly they treat their actual employees.
