    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in March 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in October 2015.

    Interview

    My interview with kiewit was far from painful started with a face to face then proceeded with about an hour long phone interview the lady who I had a one on one interview with was very nice and was very knowledgeable in the field. She made it easy and fun to start discussion but would pull it back into focus. The phone interview was my toughest part due to the fact of not being able to make facial contact etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Omaha, NE) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied at a college career fair - received a next day interview which consisted of talking about what I wanted to do after college, Kiewit's culture and how the company works. Received a call about a week later to set up a skype interview (Hirevue). Hirevue had a bunch of general questions (why do you believe you are a good fit for the job..etc.) This was followed by another call to set up an interview in Omaha with the manager's who I'd be reporting to.

    The last interview was pretty standard. Talked about why I am a good candidate, expressed that I would be willing to move to where the work was, and that I was willing to make a commitment to learning scheduling and Primavera.

    A couple days later I received a call with the job offer.

    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.

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation (Bellevue, NE) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was done by webcam. I am not familiar with this tpe of interview and would appreciate a one on one meeting, face to face. I prefer to show my work on paper, certificates, degrees, letters of acknowledgement rather than try to answer 4 questions in an alloted amount of time.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult for me or unexpected. What was unexpected was there were only 4 questions and I was being timed per question. On webcam interviews you cannot touch the screen for the next question or timer to record your answer with your fingernail. It has to be the pad of your fingers to work. You don't get a second chance if you make a mistake on the webcam interview.   Answer Question
