    Senior Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City, MO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They wine and dine you for an overnight stay in Kansas City courted by a concierge, all expenses paid. The interviewers were alright and they took me out to lunch for a more laid back environment, but still a part of the interview process. Questions were technical ones, and I met with about 7 or 8 folks over the course of about 4-5 hours. They were not very honest and forth write, which was a huge concern of mine. My experience and attention to detail were able to catch inconsistencies, and turn the tables on them as I interviewed them. They punted and said they would have to get clarification on my questions, as they realized I caught them in a lie.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me mostly technical questions surrounding my experience in design and past projects I worked on. Very few situational questions were asked, from what I remember.   1 Answer
    • They showed a ton of interest in my government experience, as they were looking to hire someone who could support them on their government sector of projects.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    They were deceptive during the interview. Their offer came in at 10% less than what I currently made. They tried to sell me on the room for "growth potential" there, and their performance based incentive program where you can make "up to 25%" of your annual salary. Problem is they didn't have a straight answer on what they use to determine a base line, and if and by how much you exceed this theoretical baseline.
