    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.

    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.
