    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Babcock & Wilcox Company (Charlotte, NC) in December 2017.

    Phone interview and face to face. The group panel went very well, I believe. I sit in a room with 2 other people one of them was on video. I felt a positive vibe, when i mention I was in the army, senior IT guy mood kind of changed. He later told me he was in the Navy, I think this affected my chances sadly.
