    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Seattle, WA) in May 2017.

    First had a video interview via Hirevue and an online questionnaire. Was then called for a phone interview two weeks later. They then flew me out to Seattle for multiple interviews. You have to be extremely prepared, so definitely practice your interview questions.

    Business Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First there was a 30 min Phone Interview to describe what the position is and some basic information. They then assign you an Assessment - Time Math and Verbal, which personally is meant to trip you up. There are some blank answers and you have to move forward. Good luck with blind guessing. Then there is an In-person interview for about 30 min. which is a little more detailed. I don't think the next step is for everyone but my in-person interviewer was sick so I got someone else and they decided I needed a second interview and that was over the phone with the controller.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ingleside, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Ingleside, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    it was a two interview process for me. I applied at my local college career and got an interview later that same day. The interview was very generic and only really involved me discussing my past experience. later that week i was asked by HR to do some online personality as well as a simple webcam interview for corporate purposes. About a week later i got an interview at the job site as well as a tour. That day I was interview by three different people of different departments (none of which directly worked in the engineering department). in the end the interview was tough but fair, asking exactly what i brought to the table. In the end a hiring manager I had not met, nor had the opportunity to meet(he was on vacation), made the decision i wasn't exactly what they were looking for about a week later. overall it was an okay experience and they offered to pay for travel expenses to the final interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Corpus Christi, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and received a notification to record interview responses. Was asked to tell a little about myself and why I was interested in the job, if I would relocate, what my strengths and weaknesses were. I had two tries to record each response. It all felt very impersonal. I was turned out shortly after, and I'm not really sure why because it was so impersonal.
