    Entry Level Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sargent & Lundy (Chicago, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I met with a representative from HR first, then sat down for a half hour each with four separate engineers from various levels within the substation team of the power and delivery unit. I then had lunch with the Senior Manager of the substation engineering team. Interview lasted four and half hours total. I was put up in a hotel the night before as I was coming in from out of town. The whole interview process blew me away and was impressive to say the least. The interview questions were a mix of behavioral, some technical, but most questions were really aimed at gauging my level of interest in both the company and the type of work that I would be doing. I did a lot of research on the company's website and thought a lot about the company's rich history and standing in the power industry and the consulting and EPC space. That went a long way in me being informed about what the company does, allowing me to ask pointed questions that were meaningful and let the team know that I cared enough to ask them. Offer was great and I didn't negotiate.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sargent & Lundy (Chicago, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I first talked to Sargent & Lundy through my university career fair. They told me to apply online at my career service website as well as their company website. A short while later, I received a phone call from an HR representative saying that they're interested in me, and that an email will follow. I was invited to interview at the Chicago headquarters. The interview process was very easy and relaxed. It was a day long procedure involving 4 interviews. I talked to 2 Senior Associates from my respective discipline (I&C), had lunch with 2 Associates, and talked to the I&C Manager. My day ended with an interview with the HR employee. Each session listed took about 30-45 minutes (lunch took about an hour, but it was purely conversational) and it mostly involved the employees telling me what they do at Sargent and Lundy. No case questions, technical questions, or even behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to talk about my resume/experiences. The discipline lead then asked me why I should be hired.   Answer Question
