    The interview was informal and smooth. I enjoyed talking to the interviewer and was getting along really well. At the end, I was told I’d hear back in a week. I was ghosted and heard nothing back.

    Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jacobs (Portland, OR (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    HR contacted me for initial screening. Apparently, HR has a check list. I did not have one of the qualifications in HR's check list and he turned me down. After a month later, another HR called me to set up a time for the interview. I was told that the qualification is optional.

    45 min interview with hiring manager.
    -Hiring manager was not aware about there is a job opening at all.
    -Hiring manager did not read resume at all.

    It is very unethical to waste job-seeker’ s time during this hard time with pandemic going on.
