I worked at JP Kenny full-time (More than a year)
I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at JPKenny. The open and supportive attitude allowed me to learn quickly.
There is no room for advancement. Training was mostly useless as was the mentorship system in my case.
Advice to Management
The training system needs work. As it is most of the training involves showing up on your day off and listening to someone explain a program that you never get to use while giving you almost no hands on experience. For me the mentorship system did not work out at all. There needs to be more support for the mentors and the mentees especially for those working out of the office at other companies. If Wood Group Kenny is going to keep expanding the way that it has been then the company structure will need to change as well in order to allow for more possibilities for advancement.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JP Kenny (Houston, TX) in May 2011.
Very laid back. Described the company, organization, what my responsibilities would be, and just really kind of talked about my background. I knew several people in the organization, so other people's interviews may be different, but my interview was really to see my personality and if I would fit into the company.
