    Lots of travel and inconsistent work type. Very large company so can eat lost in the shuffle.

    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Jacobs (Atlanta, GA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was invited to a phone screen with three employees. I was asked about my contract management experience. The interviewers were very down to earth. The interview lasted an hour and the following day I was invited to an in person interview at the Atlanta office.
