    I have been working at BWX Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Long term government contracts ensure a long future.

    Cons

    Management in another state. Not necessarily a bad thing, but not keen to how the local business operates....mandates of pushing initiatives that dont work in every location.

    Advice to Management

    Understand each worksite and how it is different from the other.

    Planner/Scheduler Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BWX Technologies (New York, NY) in October 2018.

    Interview

    After applying I was contacted for a phone interview a few weeks later, after the phone interview I was contacted to set up an in person interview. After the in person interview it was 3 weeks before hearing back and I was presented an offer 4 weeks after my in person interview. Although I did receive an offer my start date is at the beginning of the new year which is still two months out. From the time of application to start will be around 4 months. During my in person interview I met with HR and my future supervisor who then had two peers in the same position interview me and give me a tour of the plant. Very nice people.
