    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Shaw Group (Aiken, SC) in October 2010.

    Interview

    While you're reviewing the questions, since you don't know exactly what questions you will be asked, consider some situations you have dealt with at work or projects you have worked on. You may be able to use them to help frame responses.

    Prepare example that illustrate times when you have successfully solved problems or performed memorably. Also, prepare examples where you have dealt with difficult or challenging situations, because you will probably be asked about negative situations as well as positive ones.

    The examples will be useful to help you respond meaningfully during a behavioral interview.
