    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview

    I interviewed for an equipment management intern position the day after a career fair. Questions were very standard, describe a situation or strength and weakness questions. The interviewers were clearly a little tired, as they had likely done at least 15 interviews that day. I would've liked to talk more about technical information or resume details, it's tough for candidates to stand out when questions are pretty vanilla.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you had a differing opinion from someone and how you handled it.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview was relatively simple, some personality questions, met some of the engineers at the facility. Was given an offer on the spot to be an estimating intern.

    IT Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in July 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and filled out job app. Received an email a few days later to give a hirevue interview. This is a video interview with scripted questions. I thought about it for a couple of days and ultimately decided if this company can't spend the time to phone screen a candidate then I don't want to waste my time on them either. They are pushing all the effort onto the candidate without investing any time themselves.

    Almost felt like they are herding cattle.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview

    Very poorly organized. One staff member was insulting their manager and people with whom they worked. Was not impressed. Indicated that there was high turnover and would let people go for no reason

    Interview Questions

    • Management was fine and focused on experience and handling situations. Staff was asking terminology questions like they looked it it up on Google, but did not ask about to actually do the job.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I directly called an internal recruiter about a position that had been posted. The recruiter told me the salary range. We scheduled an in-person interview. Prior to that in person interview, I applied online. After the interview, the company made an offer, which was lower than the promised salary range. The recruiter denied giving that range. My records and application proved otherwise. I counter-offered; a slight bump up salary offer was made, which I turned down. Disappointing hiring practices-

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly standard interview questions - in a group interview with direct manager and colleagues. (Tell me about your experience with international projects, etc)   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very straight forward and by the book. It was educational and open minded a very refreshing approach. It was the first time I honestly became educated during an interview. It was a great process. The safety alone was Amazing and refreshing.

    Interview Questions

    • It would be the re quoting of all the information shortly after the interview, how ever it was the step procedures involved and the entire commitment of all staff and employees that made the process smooth and easy to pick up in a short time. The question that I had to take time on was `what do you want to be in this company? It was hard to say at first due to the fact of all the Amazing options, like a kid in a candy store.   Answer Question
