    Senior Accountant Interview

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

    Mining Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. One month later I was emailed with a link to fill out a personality questionnaire and IQ/critical thinking test. I was also emailed a link to a HireVue virtual interview. Neither of these emails explained what to do with the links or what to expect when I went clicked on them. The HireVue experience is terrible. You just speak your answers into a webcam. There is no personal feel and it doesn't give you a chance to explain your answers in depth or correct anything you may have mis-spoken about like you would in a real interview.

    Proposal Writer/Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Englewood, CO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Someone recommended me to a Proposal Manager. I sent him my resume and he forwarded it to HR who asked me to apply online and do a HireVue interview. 3 weeks later they called to schedule an in-person interview. They flew me out to Englewood for the interview and took me to lunch. It was very pleasant and relaxed. They called 3 weeks after that to offer me the position. I spent about 2 weeks negotiating with them before accepting the offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I called a few days after I got the offer and said "I am so excited about this position and about joining the team, but in order to accept I'd need to see a higher starting salary." HR said "Ok, what were you thinking?" and then "OK, let me find out how much wiggle room we have." They met me right in the middle of the original offer and what I had requested.

I was still a good outcome, i have been working for them now just under a year.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The person at the front desk was not welcoming when I first walked in but instead seemed annoyed I was standing in front of her. Interviewing here was NOT a good experience. The two HR representatives I met with didn't make it much better. They where very condescending and would not let me finish my answers to their questions. All in all, I recommend hiring associates who are more people/client oriented.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    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.
