    Procurement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Long Beach, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Jacobs (Long Beach, CA).

    Interview

    Networked with HR; about 5-6 people interviewed at once. Because it was an entry level position, they just talked about their own experiences and told me stories. They barely asked me any questions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about an hour but it was so laid back and comfortable I didn't notice. The group of people are all incredibly nice and accommodating. The only negative is that my recruiter forgot to tell HR I have been offered the job so when I got to work, I wasn't in the system and it took the first week to get situated.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview

    Applied directly through website; non technical interview. It was over skype, and the manager + HR were in the room, but not in view of the camera. Basically, it is clear to me they like to hire excited interns who have demonstrated interest in their field of study outside of school. For me, that meant club involvement.

    Project Surveyor - RPLS/SIT Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Worth, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Jacobs (Fort Worth, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted an application and resume and was contacted within two days by their HR employee. I interviewed with their team within a week and shared my current career status along with long term goals. They asked me to drive up for the interview, which is about three hours from my current location.

    The interview went great, I felt as if there was rapport. They asked for my salary requirements, therefore, I told them what I currently made and I requested for an offer to be made and if I was unhappy with the offer I would let them know. They made an offer for the same salary which I shared that I currently made. I informed them that I could not accept that offer, however, if they considered an increase I believe that would take care of the offer and I could begin the transition.

    Over a week goes by with no reply and I finally heard back from the HR person indicating that they had hired internally. I reached out to the three members of the team I met with and thanked them for the interview and asked if I misinterpreted the outcome of the interview? I received no reply from any of them.

    It was essentially a waste of my time and the representatives that I encountered during the interview and hiring process may actually represent what employment with Jacobs may amount to. I was hopeful to join this company, but I am grateful that I did not go through an extensive relocation process only to join an opportunistic operation.

    very welcoming, they initially wanted to get an idea of my values and work ethic. Coming right out of college they said most of the day to day tasks can be taught.

    Systems Integrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Schriever AFB, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jacobs (Schriever AFB, CO) in October 2017.

    Interview

    asked me what I do for the current contract they won over another company. told them what I do. They had a standard set of questions they asked every other person on the contract for what felt like a check the block process. They offered me a little more than the same salary as I was currently holding with no negotiation despite having a fairly lesser benefits package. required everyone to put in their current salary in their application, yet said it was illegal for us to discuss our offered salary from them with fellow employees. Pretty awkward.
