    Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kleinfelder (Concord, NC) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The process takes about 2 months. The hiring coordinator has to sell me to NCDOT and then they submit an offer then Kleinfelder get a % of that. So DOT says 23$/hr Kleinfelder will give me 19$/hr. So Kleinfelder is get 17.39%/hr of the 23$/hr DOT is giving them. But Kleinfelder is giving me the money up front only to be reimbursed by DOT

    Accounting Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kleinfelder (San Diego, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Asked to come in to interview with one person but midway through was joined by the interviewer ' s boss. Lots of verbal promises made but when it came down to written offer, verbal promises (carrots offered to entice) were no longer included. Very shady method for selling a company to a potential employee. Not the kind of people I want to work for.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Entire process seemed disorganized at best and verbal offers not put in writing are "tricks", not actual offers.

    Environmental Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kleinfelder in September 2016.

    Interview

    I live in Orange County and my interview was in Los Angeles. However, the admin assistant who emailed me my interview time told me to come at 10:00 am when my interview was actually at 9:00 am. So I got there at 9:45 and was told I was 'late' even though I showed up at the time I was supposed to (after commuting to downtown LA and paying for parking). Therefore, I was only able to talk to the project manager who was looking to fill the position for about 15 minutes and that was it. And Kleinfelder has done nothing to reschedule an interview or at least acknowledge the time and trouble I spent going to the interview. Thanks so much kleinfelder.

    Interview

    Talked about past job experiences, past field work especially. Informal and very open. There were two interviews. First, a preliminary interview in which they asked general questions, such as what are your strengths and weaknesses. This was with two people. A week and a half later, I received a second email, for a second round of interviews, this time with six people.
