Electrical Engineer Interview

Interview

The first interview was strictly behavioral. They asked about why I wanted to be an electrical engineer and then why I would be a good candidate for the job. Really nice interviewer but failed to know some technical knowledge. Second interview they asked about rectifiers as a technical question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Houston, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Online video interview where you record yourself answering questions. They give you 3 attempts where you can try again for each question. All in all, was very straightforward, and getting multiple attempts to record took a lot of the stress away of letting your nerves get the better of you the first attempt.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Lincoln, NE) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Basic interview where they sit you down and go over your resume. Dress is formal but the interview is kinda informal. Just brag about yourself and you should do well because all they really want to know if you'd be a good coworker. They look more into personality rather than grades.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Houston, TX) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of two stages. A primary local event was held where one on one interviews were conducted - engineers experienced in the field were brought in and allowed for easier communication between the two parties. Some candidates were selected for secondary interviews via telephone for a more technical interview - the attention of the interviewers was hard to get, so don't expect any give and take. It seemed as they had better things to do and hiring was just a chore.
