Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Denver, CO) in September 2015.

Interview

Met a recruiter at a college career fair, and got an interview the next day on campus. Had a brief interview, which was fairly casual and the interviewer was very nice. Ended up not getting the job, but it was due to lack of projects at the time I graduated.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Manhattan, KS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I talked with a representative at a university career fair. Then had a next-day interview. I was told that I would be contacted within two weeks with either a yes or a no. A month later and I still haven't heard anything from them. Pretty typical of a large company, but still not a good feeling.
