    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.
