    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Titusville, FL) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Due to the Covid-19, my interview was a virtual interview. Logged into my computer and spoke with a panel of 3. This was a first for me. Process had small technical challenges but once it was dealt with the rest of the interview was as if I sat in front of the panel physically. Interviewers were very easy to get a long with.

    I talked to the company at my university career fair then about 3 weeks later they contacted me for an interview. I also applied to the position on their website. The actual interview was very casual and they didn't ask me many questions.

    Water/Wastewater Engineer Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I did not expect this from Jacobs, but it was a fake interview. Three people were supposed to interview me, only two showed up. So that means they already have someone in mind and they’re just making sure no one else outperforms them? If a candidate does well in the interview, give her the offer and ask her to tell her decision before interviewing others. Don’t take other serious candidates and their time playfully. I should’ve doubted when they gave such a short notice for the on-site interview itself!! In short, if there’re fewer interviewers turning up than planned, it means someone in the interview panel does not value your time as much as they value theirs.

    Whatever the reason be- backup for the selected candidate or interviewing just for the sake of informing already that they would contact for an interview or making sure that candidate is the best - everything is equally not ethical or moral.

    Wouldn’t recommend!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview

    Not especially challenging. The rounds of interviews seemed unnecessary but overall it was a decent experience. The HR team communicated each step and kept me in the loop when leadership had to travel.

    Transportation Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Jacobs (Arlington, VA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    The 1st interview was a 30 minute conversation on the phone with the recruiter about my experience and expectations. This was a positive conversation and led to scheduling an in-person interview.

    The 2nd interview was held at Jacobs' office (Arlington, VA). I arrived early but the receptionist wasn't aware of my interview and informed me that my contact for the interview didn't work at that office. So, I waited. 15 minutes after my interview was supposed to start, a different member of the interview panel arrived and led me to a conference room to set up a call with the other two panel members. The interview was more of a conversation than Q & A. The interview felt very positive and went over time due to the late start. The in-person interviewer even offered me his card, though he didn't have any with him.

    I have received no update about the position from the interview panel or the recruiter. Like all jobseekers, I prefer to be informed if I did not get the position rather than be left hanging indefinitely. I would have expected a firm as large and prestigious as Jacobs to not ghost a job candidate if they didn't get the position.
