    SAP Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, NE (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was done by webcam. I am not familiar with this tpe of interview and would appreciate a one on one meeting, face to face. I prefer to show my work on paper, certificates, degrees, letters of acknowledgement rather than try to answer 4 questions in an alloted amount of time.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult for me or unexpected. What was unexpected was there were only 4 questions and I was being timed per question. On webcam interviews you cannot touch the screen for the next question or timer to record your answer with your fingernail. It has to be the pad of your fingers to work. You don't get a second chance if you make a mistake on the webcam interview.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    They called right away looking to setup an interview after I applied through their website. Did the in person interview and never heard anything back at all. Nothing, no rejection letter or anything. I tried to call in twice and they acted as they had no idea who I was even when I talked to the same person who called me.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Met the recruiter at a job fair, ended up getting a hirevue interview, timed iq test and behavioral questions.
    After passing the online interview and tests, i was called in for an in person interview. I got a job offer the next day. If you enjoy the opportunity to move around and work in camp, make sure to say so as those are some of the most important qualities they are looking for.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Submitted Resume during Career Fair where a recruiter looked over it. An email was sent to take a few tests then received an email for a phone screening. During the screening the woman asked if I was looking at any other companies when I said yes, she wanted to know the companies and starting putting the other companies down. Thought it was very unprofessional.

    Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview process went very quickly and was very well done. They even fly you out to whatever district you would be working in. However, I believe they really lead you on. I was given the understanding that we essentially had to just show up to the final interview and get the job. That was not the case.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all basic interview questions. No real difficult or unexpected ones. All of them were exactly what you would expect from an employer. "Tell us about yourself, etc" The most unexpected question as probably one that tried to show that I was an analytical person. The question was something along the signs of if a project was running below expected completion what do you need to do to have it complete on time.   Answer Question
