    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Austal (Mobile, AL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview about 2 weeks after I submitted my resume. The interview went great. I interviewed with a Contracts Manager. After 3 weeks, I emailed HR and they told me they were still interviewing applicants and would let me know either way. Now it has been 5 weeks and I still havent heard anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions related to Contract Administration and how I handled difficult problems in the past. Very straight forward.   Answer Question
