    Interview

    The interview was pretty laid back. I was expected to introduce myself and answer a few behavioral questions. It seems like they were feeling me out more as a person than trying to dig into my technical background. The interview focused a lot on whether or not I would fit in the company's culture.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by recording questions asked through a prompt on your webcam at your own time. It was a little weird to do as I've never had an interview done that way so it was awkward.

    Interview

    Very quick process. Got an interview a couple days after applying and got a response from HR 2 days later. Even though I did not get a position (they were filled up positions for the summer of 2018) they still offered me to keep in contact to get an offer for the summer of 2019

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

    Interview

    First interview was over the phone with a coordinator of the APM group. Second interview was in person with 3 employees at the company varying in job title. The process was simple and well thought out. Do your research before interviewing with the company as they like to see you are very interested in them.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City, MO) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The first step was a recorded video interview. They sent you a link and you could complete the interview whenever convenient for you. Questions appeared on the screen and you had 1 minute to think of an answer, then record your response. You were allowed one re-do. I received a "no positions that match your interests" about 2 hours after submitting the video interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in February 2018.

    Interview

    I began in October with a video interview, where I answered some pre-recorded questions, then was contacted again in February for a phone interview. I found that the entire process was a lot less personal than most other companies I interviewed with. the video interview was very strange, and the interviewers during the phone interview were very uptight, and just stuck to the questions. It didn't feel like a conversation like most interviews, it felt more like an interrogation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City, MO) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Entire process lasted about 3-4 weeks. Started off with an invitation to do a recorded web interview (you are video recorded answering some of their questions). Typical questions, nothing challenging or technical. Just personality and background.

    A week or so later I received a call to schedule an in-person interview at their global headquarters that I lived not far from. Was told to prepare a presentation and was given criteria of what the presentation should consist of.

    When I arrived to present and interview with the hiring managers they did not seem to be aware that I was asked to have a presentation ready. Interview after the presentation was just a few questions about what I knew on the department and what questions I had.
