    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SNC-Lavalin (Houston, TX (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Initial Phone Interview with recruiter, In-Person interview with multiple people, Final In-Person interview with multiple people. Interviews were good, people were nice and very friendly, everyone was communicative ... until, after the final interview when I never heard back from anyone to tell me that I did or did not get the job - even after reaching out more than once. Not hearing anything from them after spending so much time in the interview process and being told I was one of two candidates that made it to the final round of interviews was pretty disappointing.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SNC-Lavalin in February 2015.

    Interview

    Company called and scheduled phone interview. Interview went really well and we scheduled a in person interview for the following week. The night before the in person interview I received a message from HR stating the interview was cancelled and we would reschedule. To this point I haven't heard a think from the company. I found the company to be extremely unprofessional and I'm glad to find this out before I wasted anymore time with them.
