    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CH2M (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    15-minute test about geotechnical engineering followed by an interview with 2 employers. It was pretty laid back. Most of the questions were about my subjects at uni and my past work experience. They did ask what my most and least favorite subjects, my skill level in AutoCAD, BIM software and some questions to show my leadership.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at CH2M (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two hours interview to test soft skills and technical competency. Asked to prepare technical presentation of project done at the university.

    Interview took place at the London office. Both interviewers made me feel comfortable as possible considering the circumstance.

    Lots of questions from both assessor's. However, it was a very interactive session.

    At the end of the interview, they invited me to lunch with them which I politely declined. At that point to me, it was no brainer to accept their offer over other offers if successful.

    Interview Questions

    • What type of electric cables would you recommend for a rail project?

      What are the factors to consider when to implement power cables in rail networks?
