I interviewed at Jacobs

Interview

It was a good, positive experience with everyone being professional. It could have been better, quicker communication, but that comes with the territory of a large company. It was just one interview, as it was an entry level job.

Interview

Individual interviews were positive but the process as a whole was slow and disorganized. All individuals were kind and enthusiastic but each step took longer than advised. Key information that I communicated clearly was ignored or not shared internally, resulting in an offer I couldn't accept. Better internal communication could have led to a different outcome.

It was very casual. I had been recommended by someone and they set up a lunch with the 2 project managers and discussed stuff on my resume. They wanted to know about my previous work experience as well as educational stuff.

Video interview pre recorded but can’t start over anytime to answer the 5 questions. Straight forward but never got a response back the HR team is slow because after submitting application they invited me to do video interview 2 months later which is a long time for them to get back to me.

I applied online. I interviewed at Jacobs in May 2021

Interview

The interview process was smooth. Initially it was video phone screen, recording answers for questions shown. Good thing is you can re-take video screen before finally submitting. This was followed by formal interview. Everything was virtual.

Interview Questions
  • The interview was friendly, they mostly asked questions about the project I am working on. Also had some standard interview questions like weakness, hobbies etc.

I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Jacobs (Boston, MA) in May 2021

Interview

A team-lead (not even a recruiter) approached me about a position and set up a video call to discuss it, but instead of telling me about the position he jumped right into a technical interview. I didn't even know what I was being interviewed for or how to prepare! He was very rude, condescending, and unprofessional. The only information I got about the actual position was that it wasn't remote and didn't pay very well.
