    Wastewater Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoneton, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MWH Global (Phoneton, OH).

    Interview

    Applied per a referral from former colleagues. A phone interview was set up and four people interviewed. First question was "tell us who you are" so it was basically like an entry level philosophy class. One question was actually "are you seriously considering this job or is this just a fishing expedition" . Well I guess I am always looking for a delicious bass or trout. WTF about asking a question like that??

    Negotiation

    Not necessary, declined offer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MWH Global (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process took about 3 weeks. I applied online and had an interview schedule a week later, then another week to hear their decision. I did not come in person, I had an interview over the phone with 2 people from the department I applied for, which lasted for about 35-40 minutes.

    I heard back 5 days later with their decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic interview questions, "Tell us about yourself", "what do you see yourself in 5 year", "tell us about a time when you had to face a challenge and how did you overcome it". Because i'm still in school and applying for an intern position, they also asked a few questions about the classes i've taken.

      Very positive light interview overall.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation needed. Offer was fair.

    Instrumentation, Controls and Automation Lead Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MWH Global (Broomfield, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position in early January, was contacted the day after to setup an interview. It took 3 weeks to have the first interview, and then 11 weeks to complete all 6. I would regularly go 2 weeks without hearing anything from MWH, who really did not seem to value my time or the effort that I was putting in. I did not receive the position because they changed the job criteria after i had interviewed to require relocation and high amounts of travel. Had this been on the original job posting, I never would have applied as the position would not have fit me. Be careful if you apply and make sure that you ask about travel and relocation up front (even though I did and it did not help me).
