Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs

Interview

Process: 1. First interview arranged via Teams 2. The interview went great. However, the senior manager couldn’t attend so they had to arrange a second interview. 3. Second interview: I waited for 30 minutes before the recruiter realised that they didn’t send the invite to the managers so they had to reschedule the second interview. 4. Actual second interview went great. 5. I was then made an offer two weeks later for a job that is two grades lower than that I applied to, a salary significantly less than my current salary, essentially equivalent to what I was on 5 years ago. Pro: - Very nice and friendly people Cons: - Poor recruitment process - Clear misjudgment of talent Overall very bad experience.

Interview

Applied 2 months ago for a EIT position. Got an email to interview for completely different role on a Friday and did a Microsoft teams meeting the following Monday. Very relaxed and straight forward interview. There was one HR, a construction manager and a senior project manager. Did introductions, they explained the role, etc. I was asked to explain my work experience in detail. There was only maybe 3-5 behavioural/situational questions that were straightforward.

Interview was quite okay... They check knowledge of codes and how good you are practically. But it also depends on which panel you are allotted. Overall it was a good experience. But I couldn't make it. Be ready to face questions from other subject too

The recruiter reached out, asked a few questions, and then scheduled a Zoom meeting with the acting Onboarding Specialist. We met the following week, the interviewee was very informative and descriptive of the position and expectations. It was a short interview but definitely had thought out questions to ask the applicant.
