    Interview

    They framed it as an info session, so I had know idea it was an interview. I walked in and they went down my resume and asked about my experiences. They got to know me better. I ask a few questions about them. I would say it was an overall positive experience.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Fairfield, CA) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I declined their offer a couple of years ago, and a recruiter called me to check if I was still available during the COVID crisis.

    After speaking with the recruiter, a senior HR recruiter called me - about an hour long interview of very basic questions. He told me that they are looking someone who can work long hours (mind you this is a salaried - overtime exempt position).

    Soon after, I had a phone interview with a Field Engineer. This was more constructive. She gave me good insights into the work and the challenges that come with the position. She said she regretted not bringing her work home when she was in the field. It goes without saying that Field Engineers are expected to work upwards of 50 hours a week, and since the position is exempt from overtime, there is no compensation for all the extra hours that will be put in.

    About a week later, I had two separate interviews via FaceTime with two sponsors. Sponsors are upper management that oversee a work region and they have a stake in the company. The interviews were very basic. No technical or situational questions involved at all. They basically wanted to gauge my enthusiasm towards construction and Kiewit. From what I heard from the recruiters and other engineers, they are eager to hire those that are willing to put in any amount of hours required by the project.

    Interview

    Applied online, process took about 1.5 months. I'd receive communications at 10pm and sometimes at 7am. The interviews weren't too bad and the process was competitive. Some of the people I dealt with were really bad with communication. You definitely feel like a number here in the beginning, you have to prove your worth.
