    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Michael Baker International (Phila, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call from HR. The rep asked me a couple of questions regarding my resume and areas of expertise. He said he would follow up either way. This came about from an online resume/cover submitted through indeed. I felt like I was respected by the HR rep. It gives me a good impression of the company Michael Baker Intl.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Michael Baker International (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Sloppy. Local HR rep was nice to coordinate with, but the original HR coord. in Arizona missed the day we were supposed to speak. The in-person interview was odd. Met with new hiring manager who just moved here from California, who was more interested in speaking about herself. Passed on to a would-be colleague is was more interested in bragging about how long he and his family have been at Michael Baker. Then was asked to do a test and take home assignment, which meant free work done by a job candidate for the company. Especially after doing this, bad on the company's part to offer no response to my thank you e-mails, yet send a standard rejection email two months later. I know of two other people who went after the same job in this department, and both had negative comments about the encounter.

    GIT Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Michael Baker International (Newark, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through Indeed, received a phone call few days later from the HR department. Then got set up for an interview with the hiring manager ( stated needed to interview 2 more people) which was very positive. Then a month later HR lady contacted me saying I wasn't good enough for the job. Hiring manager said I was over qualified for the position and that typically they were not looking for someone with a BA degree for the role because it was more of an Administrative Assistant position, that threw me off. I also had the feeling that they were trying to low ball me with the salary because I was exited for the job and was flexible with the salary offer but they just kept going lower and lower. A position that typically pays roughly around 55K they were low balling me with 30k.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michael Baker International in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was casual and went very well. Talked a lot about past projects and my education and not many "traditional interview stumpers".

    Was told I would receive a response one way or another. Sent a thank you and follow up emails and nobody contacted me again. I was very polite and not pushy so I found this to be surprising. Not a positive experience, overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Michael Baker International in June 2015.

    Interview

    The initial communication and interviews were great. I had 1 phone interview and 2 in person interviews in the span of 3 weeks. But over 3 months later, I had yet to receive communication indicating my status one way or another, despite requests for updates.

    The interviews with the company themselves went well and were more conversational.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michael Baker International.

    Interview

    This was a phone interview where we mostly ran though my resume and cover letter and the specific qualifications of the position. There was time for me to ask questions and clarify aspects of the appointment that were not clear in the job posting. The whole process took less than an hour and flowed more like a conversation than a traditional interview. Over all, it was enjoyable.
