    Job Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Vancouver, WA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straight forward. I spent more time just talking about things I had done growing up than the job itself. The interviewer was fairly high up in the company, and had approximetly 20 years experience just in tthis company. I was bought lunch afterwards and continued to discuss potential job placement.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    In this economy, there really was no negotiation. It was a take it or leave it deal. What can I say? The economy is not in the employee's favor right now.

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Denver, CO) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Kiewit is persistent in continuing to recruit experienced personnel when identified. Interviewed twice prior to offered a salary. Company failed to adhere to certain promises offered during the hiring process and did not follow through to make sure that long or short term goals could be accomplished.

    At the time, the weekly salary was offered was very attractive, only to find out later that it only benefited the company.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online. About a week after applying, I was invited via email to sign up for self-recorded video interview. Interview was about 5 questions long and you had 3 minutes to deliver your answers. This method was extremely impersonal and awkward. Conveys the distinct feeling that the company is interested in processing applicants more than investing in their candidate pool.

    Assistant District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Highland, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Highland, UT) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I had two interviews with Mr. Schott, which he was extremely professional but made me feel comfortable and at ease. His question were that of typical interview's I have had in the past; however, he also took a personal interest beyond past interviews. With this approach I felt he was not only hiring the resume attributes but the person as well.

    Interview Questions

    • I believe the hardest questions that seem to be in all interview is "What are your worst Qualities". I feel this question is a loaded question and ineffective. In my opinion, there is no real adequate answer due to the fact that most people answer the question to make sure it gets them the job and are not completely honest. However, when I am asked this question I am maybe overly honest but I will admit I do hold back a little as to not shoot myself in the foot during the interview process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a more than adequate pay scale in term to most internships as well as a very accommodating schedule that worked around my schooling.

    Internship Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Bozeman, MT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Sat in front of a computer screen, and questions would pop up. No actual interaction with another person. You had a certain amount of time to answer each question and it would automatically record your answer. Super awkward process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in March 2016.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The person at the front desk was not welcoming when I first walked in but instead seemed annoyed I was standing in front of her. Interviewing here was NOT a good experience. The two HR representatives I met with didn't make it much better. They where very condescending and would not let me finish my answers to their questions. All in all, I recommend hiring associates who are more people/client oriented.
