    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.
