    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Balfour Beatty (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Actually was a good interview. 1St. interview was with the Company Project Manager and the second
    interview was with the company Director of Operations. It had taken two weeks to decide on who was going to have this position, but since I had over 30 years of experience it wasn't too difficult to decide whom this was going to be. I was awarded this position after the second interview.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Balfour Beatty (New York, NY (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Multiple-round process consisting of interviews with the majority of the team in NY including Partner, Director, Vice President and Senior Associate. Interviews were fairly casual - a lot of resume discussion, a case study discussion, an excel test, and behavioral questions - no other real finance/accounting questions. First round was with the partner and subsequent rounds were with the other teammates. During the final round I received an offer from another fund that I accepted - as such I rescinded my application prior to the final decision - I was told by the headhunter prior to rescinding that it was down to me and one other candidate.
