    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview

    The managers who interviewed me were very professional and polite. They started asking me to talk about my resumé (experience, education), followed by the job properly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview

    Initiated with a couple of informal phone interviews which resulted in a face to face at the main office. The process was relatively simply and straight forward. The process was a positive experience. There was a quick offer after the face to face interview and an immediate response was requested. The process was efficient.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were straight forward and to the point. There were not any of the ridiculous "if you were an animal what would you be" questions. We discussed the position, my experience and leadership style. Everything was relevant to the program and position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was limited due to the position and available budget. A counteroffer of was presented and accepted. Information regarding benefits was not made available upon request. It was not refused just overlooked and I did not press the issue as it was a minor factor in evaluation of the offer.
