    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview

    Relatively fast. Had me come down for an in-person interview. Felt welcome. People were friendly. Took about an hour or two. They did not pay for me travel expenses. Took about a month for paperwork to be processed and actually start the job.

    Interview

    Everyone is polite and is able to access the candidate based on experience and knowledge. They do not ask very technical questions but try to see what you can and cannot do. They are very experienced and interview process is not stressful at all.

    Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    They called me two weeks after my online application and setup a phone interview. Despite not much a pleasant experience during the phone interview (not polite language during the call), I decided to give it a second chance and accepted the site visit.

    Once met with the hiring manager at his office, he told me that the position that they have advertised and interviewed me for is actually not that and they are hiring for a different role. This was a red flag. The rest of the interview was a waste of time.

    One of the younger-to-be-managers would try to show he knew a lot or wanted me confess I did know nothing. I think he was insecure or not very competent and was struggling to establish himself as the future lead of the group. The interview process with the younger to-be-manager was not pleasant, both during the phone call and site visit. The rest of their technical team were professional and polite. One would easily notice the contrast after a few minutes of interaction. You would notice nepotism in that group too.

    I suggest Bechtel's upper management review their departments hiring processes by sending undercover applicants to different offices, because the unprofessional behavior of some of the people is damaging Bechtel's overall reputation.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted to know why I have chosen Bechtel. They asked me simple and complicated technical questions. They asked me how I spend my free time and what are my hobbies. How many hours I usually work in a week. What is my long term career goal.   1 Answer

    University Hire Startup Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel (New York, NY (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I went to a conference and where I meet HR reps. Week later did a skills assessment which doesn't "affect" your chances of earning an interview. Furthermore, about 2 to 3 weeks later had a phone interview. Great down to earth but professional interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bechtel (State College, PA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Very informal and laid back. 3 people asked me various questions about what I wanted from the company, where I want to work. They talked about the company and the company's values and asked if I had any questions and gave good answers to what I asked.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bechtel (Houston, TX (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was a panel (which is daunting to the interviewee and not the best way to get a sense of what a prospective employee might offer). At one point, one of the panel members was on her phone, which is extremely rude and unprofessional and I knew at that point neither of us wanted the other. Still, I was assured by two Bechtel employees that I would be informed of their decision one way or another, but I was not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bechtel.

    Interview

    College career fair. Easy questions asked by a current employee who was a school alumni. I think they have since stepped up their college program. At the time, it felt like I just walked right into the job, really.
