    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Ann Arbor, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had two rounds of interviews, the second was almost 5 hrs long. After a week they sent an email saying you are being considered for this position and later that week they just send an email saying you are rejected without any proper reason.

    After a 5 hr long interview, and after waiting for almost 20days they just say " unfortunately we couldn't proceed further with the offer" without any reason why. And when asked for a reason they just don't respond....

    Please respect ones time and all the patience.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, MO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very awkward and unsure of himself. Made little eye contact. Didn't inquire further about any answers I gave to him and seemed uncomfortable with the process. Had to ask me to repeat myself many times because he was so focused on copying down my responses verbatim. Overall made it difficult to get into detail because of his behavior.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Overland Park, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Based on the recent interview process, I would never consider working for the company. Very unprofessional from the initial Recruiter phone interview to the HR Business Partners who did the face to face interview. They appeared to be very stressed and annoyed that they had to take the time to speak to me. The only nice part of the interview was meeting the Managers that this position would support. They at least had the grace and professionalism to listen to the response to your answer.
