    Marketing Related Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by 6+ recruiters about the position. Some from other states. Passed a phone interview with a project lead. In the face-to-face interview there were 3 interviewers, one never asked any questions and seemed to not want to be there, one was very positive and friendly, and one kept saying he was confused about things on my resume which I explained over and over. This interviewer asked very high level questions synonymous to asking someone "how to build a house" or "how to make a car", my answers were consequently high level too. Which seems odd since they passed because my answers weren't "technical enough". Felt like a decision was made by some of the interviewers the minute I walked in.

    Interview Questions

    • General past experience questions, spanned previous work with UI, backend and databases. Some were detailed and purposeful but not difficult to answer, others were too generic and seemed like I had to guess the answer that the interviewer had in mind.   Answer Question

    First is phone interview, then after a week, go to office for group interview. I talked with the hiring manager and their team directly. Not very positive feeling.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in September 2015.

    Interview

    HireVue questionnaire, sit down interview with two managers in Omaha a few weeks later. Interview lasted 1.5 hours. Four weeks later got a call for another sit down with the same two managers. Second interview took over an hour. Was told they sent an offer to the other final candidate and they accepted. Overall very good company and really liked the two managers I interviewed with. Sadly they were looking for someone with an accounting degree (mines in Finance) but I had accounting and SAP work experience. Will try again when another opening is available.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    Horrible found the company’s hiring practices to be unethical. They only want young applicants. Mature applicants need
    Not reply. After the first experience they contacted me by email wanting me to be considered for another position and then after I said yes i never heard from them again. I even tried to email the HR representative asking why again no response. If this is a sample of how they do business then pass them by a better job is waiting for you elsewhere.

    Video introduction was more difficult than sitting face to face. You got 3 chances to get it right. They asked 5 questions then gave you a chance to change it. After about 3rd question I just kinda of gave up.

    Had a 30 minute round of telephone interviews w/ 3 individuals - 2 peers and one supervisor (director). Followed up w/ on-site with same 3 plus 1 new peer, with slightly longer timeframes (30-60 mins each).

    • Most of the questions surrounded the hypothetical aspects of the job. We got mostly into my architectural philosophy, and not into the nuts and bolts of what the job would be about. We never got to the technical aspects or specifics of the job, mostly discussed the role.   Answer Question
