    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly short, it was a phone interview and I'm almost positive the position was already filled. This being said, I could pretty much tell he was just filling the time slot. All in all, I will be applying at this next career fair and be more prepared to land the spot!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Kansas City, MO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of mostly behavioral questions. There were a few technical questions, but only after I had shown knowledge of whatever topic was being talked about. I had 6 thirty minute interviews back to back. It seems like a long process, but the professionals were all very down to earth and seemed genuinely interested in me.
