Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City, MO) in January 2017.

Interview

Interview went very well. I felt they were really trying to get a feel for who I was, and how I carried myself rather then what technical trivia I could spit out in the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Overall very well-structured. Since I had existing experience I could avoid the presentations new-grads often have to give to show their worth and intelligence. Mostly it was a relationship-building process with less focus on competency or aptitude.

    Interview Questions

    • My 10-year career objectives. This is a cliche question as most in their careers can't answer the 5-year.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City, MO) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Very friendly and conversational. First interview was a video interview with pre-recorded questions, the typical situation/behavioral type questions. About a week or two later, I was given the opportunity to come down to the headquarters in KC for a second interview. Flight, hotel, car, etc. all paid for.

    Second interview consisted of a 15-20 minute presentation to 7-8 managers, followed by five 45 minute one-on-one interviews with division managers (energy, transmission, etc.). You can receive multiple job offers. I received four offers two days after my interview, so you are given great opportunity to choose what suits you most.

    Interview

    The interview I had was on-site. Before I interviewed, I went to lunch with a couple of recent graduates as kind of an ice breaker. The interview itself wasn't too bad. I gave a presentation to three managers, and they asked me questions on it afterward

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was very conversational. It was pretty much the managers getting to know you and see if you and your experience are a good fit   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview from my school's career fair and they sent me an email that they wanted to fly me out to the site to do an on-site interview 2 weeks after. Very professional in communication and it's a very good firm to work for. The interview process was pretty straight forward: behavior questions

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straight forward. It begins with an online application and then you have an online interview. The first ten questions are basic fill in questions. Then it is followed by 6 behavioral questions. They were pretty standard.

    Interview

    I was contacted to do a video interview with Burns & McDonnell. There were five questions. After answering each question, I had the chance to watch my answer and rerecord the answer if I wanted. The questions were basic and asking about previous experiment and some behavioral questions. I did not receive an offer and I was told they are trying to match a position to my skills.
