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

    Interview

    After completing an online interview, I was invited to visit the local office. I gave a 15-20 minute presentation to a group of managers, and then participated in two additional interviews. The interview process was very informal and welcoming. The questions were really focused on getting to know my personality and understanding what I want to get out of my career. After the interviews, I went out for lunch with two current employees. Overall, the experience was great. The environment and culture was truly exciting, and the employees were very passionate about their work.

    Positive Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process is slow (took 2.5 months), but BMCD is very upfront about how long the process will take. They are looking for people to fit their Employee-Owner culture. I had 2 phone interviews and 2 in person interviews. HR was amazing though, they kept me informed of where I was in the process, were up front with information that I needed to provide, and answered all of my questions in a timely manner.
