    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Brunswick, NJ

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview was very casual and interpersonal. It was mostly a conversation about school since the interview and I went to the same university. Now HR did mess up and gave me the wrong GPA requirement so unfortunately I was not able to continue the process. With that said as long as you can present yourself well you'll be fine.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview

    Got an email from headquarters asking to do an online personality test and a hireview interview. For those that do not know, hireview, is an online interview where you record yourself answering common interview questions online. The personality test was not bad, just need to make sure you are consistent with your answers. As for the hireview questions are not bad but the fact is recording them really non-personal and difficult/nerve racking to do.

    Field Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (San Antonio, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was done using Hirvue. It was a new experience for me, and a little awkward. The difficult part of it is that there is no "back and forth flow" to the conversationl. The questions however were pretty standard. Before the interview, I had been called by a Kiewit HR representative, and I had a very good conversation. She even offered tips on the interview, and specifically told me the responses that she liked from me and told me to try and fit those in the Hirvue interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The "one-way" on-line interview is a series of questions and you have 3 min to answer, In my 30 yrars in this industry I have never seen this. Must be the social media wave of the future. It was skype but one way. It allowed the Co. to see and hear you as a screening step. I prefer face to face human interaction since people skills are one of my attributes.
