    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Jacobs in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    In-person interview with group/panel. There weren't any surprising questions. The process was involved, but not exhausting. It got repetitious with employees coming and going to ask questions, but I didn't find the process unpleasant. The process was actually very welcoming and warm...warmer than any other interview that I've done.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Jacobs in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First I had a quick telephone interview. Next I had a face to face interview with the recruiter and manager for HR. The recruiter was friendly, asked behavioral questions but the manager was a nightmare. The manager just kept grilling questions and did not listen, I guess that was her style. I would not accept the offer if I had been offered a job, working for an HR dictator would be miserable.
