Entry-Level Office/Field Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2016.

Interview

I had a digital HireVue interview with Kiewit for an entry-level office/field engineer position. The interview session consisted of five sets of interview questions, which included three minutes of actual interview response recording sessions and thirty seconds of preparing time for each interview question. It feels a little awkward talking to myself and on such a time-crunch. One of the interview questions I remember was, “Where do you see yourself in five years. How will you get there?”

Pros:
Receiving a status update or response from the recruiting team was relatively quicker than other companies who do a traditional face-to-face interview.

Cons:
Feeling a little awkward that I cannot see the interviewer’s reaction while talking.
Setting up an appropriate interview atmosphere on my own was a little difficult. I had to ask my family members to stay outside the house while I was preparing and recording.

    Very simple and easy process. It was very relaxed and they will fly you out or pay gas mileage if needed. Essentially, they want to know if you fit the company and if they can stand working with you for 12+ hrs/day.

    Look at other Glassdoor interview questions for field engineers. Most of them were spot on and helped me prepare for my interviews. Also, the salary was pretty spot on as well. Although unfortunately, there is no signing bonus but the benefits were great. My interview was early 2019.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Poway, CA) in December 2017.

    You complete a timed IQ and personality test, then complete a five question introduce yourself video, then you receive a call from HR. I did two 15 minute HR "interviews" describing my experiences and project preferences. Then I booked a time for the final in-person interview with a PM and a Project Engineer. I received a call-back with a job offer the next day. Approximately a month long process.

    Interview

    I'm still in the interview process, but I had a phone interview followed by a Yello video interview where you answer 5 pre-recorded questions. Process is rather smooth and good so far and the recruiter was very nice. Overall, so far a smooth and easy going process.

    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.
