    Field Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kiewit Offshore (Ingleside, TX).

    Interview

    I was first called and did the whole phone interview/screen process. I was then contacted to do a recorded interview. In this interview you read the question on the screen and then record your answer. This only took about 15 - 20 minutes.
    After the recorded interview, I was called to do an in person interview at the site. The onsite interview really is more of a way to see how you interact with other people and to see how personable you are.
    It was a group setting when you first arrive. There is a mixer at the hotel where all the interviewees are staying. At the mixer you meet a few employees and your fellow candidates.
    The next day we went to the job site and did a tour of the facility, had a Q/A session with one of the engineers and then had interviews.
    The interview is set up where you and about 4 or 5 other interviewees sit at separate tables and the interviewers (between 4-6 of them) will move between table interviewing each candidate.
    Afterwards, you eat lunch and go home.
    Your recruiter is there the whole time and available to answer any questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Not sure there were any that were that difficult. They ask you standard interview questions to gage your personality, ethics, initiative, etc.
      Some interviewers may change it up to get to know you a little better rather than hear the "rehearsed" answers.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate but you have an opportunity to ask for more when they call you with your offer.
