    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Golden, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    This interview was for an Engineer I position with their Underground District. I went to my school's career fair and was offered an interview there. They called me later to set up a time. I interviewed at my school with one of their engineers that was in town recruiting. I then received a phone call about a week later to set up a phone interview with a Project Manager in the Underground District. I received an email about 2 weeks later telling me I didn't get the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Englewood, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Group interview, very negative; they were certainly trying to find a way to prove that I could not do the job, even though I've done a very similar job for more than 20 years in the same industry with excellent evaluations. Very long process, then after my interview, I never heard a word from them. You would think after all the effort I made and jumping through their hoops they would at least have the professional courtesy to say no thanks, we selected someone else.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions, but they showed a very negative attitude and seemed unhappy with any answer I gave. I usually do well and feel good about my interviews, but this was an uphill battle where I could not convince them I'd done exactly what they needed and have been very successful.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Greenville, NC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Asked situational questions to judge character. It was a very relaxed one-on-one interview. The interviewer had no intention to make me nervous and he was more than helpful if I had any questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview

    Two interviews. The first was through they're hire view program. You get 3 minutes to ask the questions with a break between each one. It was very strange and ackward but they just do it to get to know the candidate a little more. I then had to deal with the HR manager who was telling me I wasn't a good fit for the job. I had an interview with the project manager and he offered me a job during the phone interview. The process took about a month after applying. Overall the experience was okay.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotations. They had a set rate based on location placed.

    Entry-Level Office/Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Golden, CO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    They do everything by phone or e-mail; nothing is face to face anymore. I got an e-mail from their college HR person, then I did two interviews with engineers. It was overall an okay experience.

    Interview

    Spoke to them at the career fair. Went to a dinner. A month or two later got an email saying to do an online interview. Very slow process. I almost gave up. The internship was supposed to be a field internship, but they stuck me in an office. My second internship was in the field.
