    Management Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at KBR (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initial Phone interview by recruiter verifying basic info, background, etc. Set up time/date for follow-up call/phone interview by Positional Manager I'd be replacing. After that call went very well, was told I'd be contacted for a follow-up interview with senior staff. Contacted a few days later by recruiter team to set up travel arrangements; they flew me to Houston, had a car pick me up at the airport (driver with my name on a sign and everything) to drive me to the Hotel right across the street from the company building. I was the 2nd of three interviewed the next day, so I slept in and had a leisurely breakfast then walked over.

    Was met in the lobby by head of HR and my recruiter, processed through security/badging then escorted upstairs to a conference room. I was introduced there to the Company President, the VP of the section my job is within (and would become my direct report), the Director of Projects (who the job does a lot of cross-work with) and the Manager I'd be replacing. Add the HR Director and the Recruiter to the table and it was myself speaking with a team of six people.

    Interview was mostly questions from the Manager I was replacing over skills/experiences specific to our job category. No trick questions, no pressure questions. Standard "tell us about yourself, tell us about a challenge you faced, etc, etc" type questions. The President had a few background questions, and the VP I'd be working directly for had a few more... style/personalty questions, probably to see if we'd be a good fit together. Positive vibes all the way through it. After the Interview, the P and VP walked me around the building to show it's features and where my office would be. All said and done, walked back to the hotel and checked out (flight, car, hotel and a per-diem for the two days paid by them), called for car to take me back to airport.

    I was halfway through the trip back, waiting for a connecting flight when I got a call from the VP offering me the job. The pay offered was actually in the upper 25% of the range I had discussed with the recruiter as part of the initial interview, so I happily accepted. Signed contract papers were in my email before I touched down from the next flight. I started work 3 weeks later.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KBR (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    There are two parts. The first part is the manager's interview. He first described about the group and then asked me some question about fan noise, pipe noise and valves. Then let me describe my work. The manager did not look at my resume. The second part is the Senior's interview. He looked carefully at my resume and asked some relative questions which are not difficult.

    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at KBR (Houston, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Extremely long process, 4 months from employee referral to decline. was told that if I wanted the position, it was mine, and to let the interviewer know within a few days if I wanted the position. I did just that, waited 3 days and confirmed that I wanted the position. 2 months later, after I had put my job search on hold, was told that I was still being looked at, and to "keep in touch". Left a bad taste in my mouth, and I don't really know if I would want to work for someone like that. I could understand if it was a "we'll call you" or something like that, but to blatantly say that if I want the position, that I could have it, and then two months later say I hadn't been forgotten and was still being looked at? Really?

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't many questions past clarifying my resume. He literally said that my resume was what he was looking for and didn't try any stereotypical "what's your biggest weakness" etc questions   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't seem like the right place to work, I had already accepted another position. They snoozed, and lost.
