    Entry Level Transportation Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Jones|Carter (Houston, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was picked fro on-campus recruiting, then they brought me out to Houston to interview with about 15 other graduating seniors. Very relaxed, no tough questions. Just know some great talking points to show how you stand out. They seemed welcoming, but I was disappointed when I didn't get an email saying I did/didn't get the job even after a follow-up email.

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jones|Carter (Houston, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The person I was interviewing with kept me waiting for over 30 minutes. This should have been my first clue. Then during the interview the interviewer was not making eye contact with me.

    Negotiation

    All of the negotiation was handled through the recruiter. The company initially offered a number upfront and I countered with the level of compensation I believed was sufficient for this role.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Jones|Carter in October 2011.

    Interview

    After a phone interview, an in-person interview was scheduled. The interviewers from HR were very friendly and asked the basic questions. I then interviewed with the department manager, who I had met before. I took a computer skills test on a computer with an odd set-up. I was scheduled to meet the company president on a different day. This meeting was a little more stiff and formal but went well. I was later scheduled for a final meeting with the company president, but an offer was not extended right away. An additional meeting with the company president was scheduled a few weeks later, when an offer was extended and accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was only able to negotiate salary. When considering an offer here, please know that the office hours are not flexible for most people. The health benefits and 401(k) management are very good and the ability to maintain an engineering license is very easy.
