    Compared to what I hear about in the industry, SNC's interview process is about as simple as they come. One interview with HR for weed out purposes, then an interview with your department.

    Business Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SNC-Lavalin (Houston, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Initial Phone Interview with recruiter, In-Person interview with multiple people, Final In-Person interview with multiple people. Interviews were good, people were nice and very friendly, everyone was communicative ... until, after the final interview when I never heard back from anyone to tell me that I did or did not get the job - even after reaching out more than once. Not hearing anything from them after spending so much time in the interview process and being told I was one of two candidates that made it to the final round of interviews was pretty disappointing.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SNC-Lavalin in February 2015.

    Interview

    Company called and scheduled phone interview. Interview went really well and we scheduled a in person interview for the following week. The night before the in person interview I received a message from HR stating the interview was cancelled and we would reschedule. To this point I haven't heard a think from the company. I found the company to be extremely unprofessional and I'm glad to find this out before I wasted anymore time with them.

    Project Controls Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at SNC-Lavalin (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    boring, few technical questions because their guy wasn't technically qualified. they paid for dinner and brought a nice looking woman with them, to knock you off your game i guess. Worst, weakest group of management people i've ever met in 20 years in the business. Their questions focused on how they were going to make you billable and get the clients money vs what you can do for their company. Most managers were Canadians that were hit in the head with hockey pucks before the NHL mandated use of helmets.
