    Media Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Balfour Beatty.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume online for a Media Relations Manager position. Some two weeks later I received an email from one of their recruiters inviting me to interview. I immediately responded back with a list of days / times on which I was available. Unfortunately, I never heard anything from them again. I followed up with the recruiter a week later and still got absolutely zero response. Very unprofessional so far as I'm concerned and I would have think twice before ever applying with Balfour Beatty again.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Balfour Beatty (San Jose, CA (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Relatively informal. Sit-down interview in the project-site office. All B.B. employees on that project came into the room and had copies of my resume. Very typical questions, though nothing about salary for obvious reasons. Really dug into my related experience, and they asked me some straight-forward and text-book questions. They asked about other projects by B.B. that I might be more interested in. (To be clear, I have not received a formal offer, but my recruiter seems confident that I landed the role. It's been 9 days since the interview).

    Interview Questions

    • "Name a time you faced a challenge"
      "Name a time you made a mistake"
      "How were you punished?"
      "Read this plan-sheet, tell me what you see." (interview presented structural plan page in order to test my knowledge)
      "Why did you choose B.B."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Balfour Beatty.

    Interview

    Simple and straight to the point. Questions were based on position and work experience. It was a informal interview, more of a conversation which I loved. First I had a phone screening about customer service experience and then a week later I had a 1:1 interview with the FM.

    Director of IT Operations and Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Balfour Beatty (Dallas, TX (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The process began in early November.

    My first interview was with the CIO and another IT director. It was a pleasant interview with standard questions. I never did a phone screen with the recruiter. I received zero follow up from the internal recruiter after multiple attempts to connect.

    Then out of the blue I received a request to come in for a second interview with managers that would be direct reports in the role. This was also a pleasant interview.

    Again, I received zero response from the recruiter. After several attempts to get an update, another person in HR emailed me they were still doing interviews and expected to have a decision by the 22nd of January. And again, no communication from anyone 3 weeks later.

    This was a high level role and I’m shocked at how they handled candidates. They just totally ghosted on me. I received another job offer, so I’m not pursuing this one any longer. It’s now February.

    Please teach your internal recruiters how to follow up with candidates. Don’t waste our time and keep us informed during the process. My feelings won’t be hurt by a No. This is a basic job function of a recruiter.
