    Average Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in February 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews:

    October: In-person 30 minute interview on campus following our career fair - this was fairly general and the interviewer was not part of the group that I wanted to intern with.

    February: a 30+ minute phone interview with the CDB office manager and my internship mentor that was specific for the location and type of internship that I wanted

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Kansas City, MO (US)).

    Interview

    First met with HR. They asked very generic questions about your core beliefs and things that are important to you. They wanted to make sure I was a good fit for the culture - working in teams and having leadership roles I believe is what helped me get in.

    Then they flew me to the corporate office which involved three different interview for three different global practices (yes, you could potentially have three or four different job offers from a single company.)

    To start the "interviews" I had to give a brief presentation on my background. I talked about why I wanted to become an engineer, the roles I have played on teams, my background on internships, and why I really wanted to work for Burns and McDonnell.

    After the presentation I met with three different division managers one on one. Each division manager talked about what their global practice/division does for about 30 minutes. They then asked me about four or five questions and opened the remaining 20 minutes to questions I had for them.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview was pretty laid back. I was expected to introduce myself and answer a few behavioral questions. It seems like they were feeling me out more as a person than trying to dig into my technical background. The interview focused a lot on whether or not I would fit in the company's culture.
