    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

    Interview

    -spoke with a representative at the career fair
    -got an online interview (12 questions)
    -moved on to a face to face interview (everything paid)
    -like everyone says it’s a full day event, you have to present a power point, you speak to multiple people which can belong to multiple departments, they take you to lunch, and you also go on a tour
    -they do a follow up within two days but that’s not when I got my results
    -I got a call informing me that I didn’t get the role but was later on told that it was due to a job they lost that they were anticipated to have when I started (Jan, I graduated in December) so this resulted in a discontinuation in the hiring for December grads

    Overall this would be a dream job for anyone. Amazing benefits and people. Houston office is in the middle of the action. If you hate group projects bc u always have lazy teammates, this company will change your mind. you can tell just from the interview that this company is top of the line, inside and out.

    Entry Level Energy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    As i was graduating December, was looking for a full time to start during spring time of the following year. Overall process took a little over 6-7 weeks. So it started by applying online during July. Got reached out by a recruiter who set me up with a video interview to record myself and answer a couple behavioral questions. Then got on site with the Chicago office. Made a presentation on myself which they put a lot of focus on. Had 2 back to back interviews one with the Transmission group and other with the Energy group. Very laid back and relaxed. I was being myself and was able to communicate well. Great people to talk with and I always felt it would be a good place to work. A couple days later HR called me saying i would be a good fit for the Energy group (which i felt so too) but they would like to have an additional video interview with their Kansas group. Had that scheduled. Went pretty well, had a great chat and really loved talking with the recruiter. The HR reached out saying the recruiter is out on field and wont be back before 2 weeks. Seemed weird, but alright, i went with it. It had been over 2 weeks did not receive a call. I lost patience and emailed the HR . No response again. I emailed her again a couple days later. After sending out cold emails, i had lost hope. I did get a call on a Friday at like 4pm. The HR just said we would not be going further with this employment. I was surely shocked. I had so many questions but the moment just got to me. Once i came back to my senses, i called her back but of course no response. After a heavy weekend, i ended up emailing the recruiter that i connected very well with. The reason i got from the recruiter was something from the "book of rejections" saying the hiring process has slowed down. The next day i see up a post looking to hire talent on LinkedIn. I was overall devastated about how the HR tried ghosting me. Waiting for a response is the hardest period for a candidate and i feel a company should know that.
