  1. Civil Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (United States)

    Interview

    I interviewed for a civil engineer position in the solid waste department. The interview was fairly casual and was mostly just talking about my experience. I actually had solid waste experience which is often hard to find so it was clear that they really wanted me. I asked about the company culture, which is something that is important to me, and their response was that they pay very well. That was a red flag for me. I accepted somewhere else and withdrew before getting an offer.
