    Anonymous Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jones|Carter (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    They asked me really good questions that probed into my skills. They actually used skill instead of a textbook on interviewing to chat with me. I didn't get the typical, "What is your greatest weakness" question. What I got was a description of the situation and a question about what I can do to help. This was both smart and a relief to really get to the root of my skills to see if I was a fit for them and that they were a fit for me.

    I also interviewed with multiple people, which I enjoyed. The process wasn't easy, but it was thorough and fair.

    Electrical Engineering Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Jones|Carter (Houston, TX) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process went rather smoothly. I had a three part interview for the intern position. The first was with the man who would be my boss. He asked me basic interview questions and gave me a run down of very basic responsibilities that I would have. The next interview was with the same man and a woman. I think the woman was supposed to make me feel more comfortable but her presence had the opposite effect. She was very abrasive to be part of the interview process. The last interview was with my boss' boss. He was a VERY intimidating man. He waited a long time before asking me my first question which wasn't a question at all, "Tell me about yourself" is the most awful interview question. It gives you a very fine line to walk between telling too much and not enough. After the initial statement things went more smoothly and he told me they would be in touch. I received an offer letter the following week.
