About Babcock & Wilcox
$3.3 billion (FY 2013)
Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises (NYSE: BW) is an American power generation company headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.
On June 30, 2015, Babcock & Wilcox completed a spinoff from BWX Technologies, its former parent which is now headquartered in Lynchburg, Virginia. The two companies began trading separately on July 1.
The company previously known as The Babcock & Wilcox Company provided design, engineering, manufacturing, construction and facilities management services to nuclear, renewable, fossil power, industrial and government customers worldwide. B&W's boilers supply more than 300,000 megawatts of installed capacity in over 90 countries around the world. A reactor from B&W was destroyed by a nuclear meltdown in the Three Mile Island accident. During World War II, over half of the US Navy fleet was powered by Babcock & Wilcox boilers. The company has its headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina. It has major operations in Lynchburg, Virginia; Barberton, Ohio; Euclid, Ohio; Lancaster, Ohio; West Point, Mississippi; Mount Vernon, Indiana; Oak Ridge, Tennessee; Erwin, Tennessee; Amarillo, Texas; Cambridge, Ontario; the Danish city of Esbjerg; and the German city of Straubing. B&W also has joint major joint venture companies in Beijing and the Indian city of Pune.
B&W employs approximately 12,700 people, in addition to approximately 10,400 joint venture employees.
The company was founded in 1867 by Stephen Wilcox and George Babcock as Babcock, Wilcox & Company to manufacture and market Wilcox’s patented water tube boiler. B&W's list of innovations and firsts include the world’s first installed utility boiler (1881); manufacture of boilers to power New York City’s first subway (1902); first pulverized coal power plant (1918); design and manufacture of components for USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine (1953–55); the first supercritical pressure coal-fired boiler (1957); design and supply of reactors for the first U.S. built nuclear-powered surface ship, NS Savannah (1961).
What to Expect When Interviewing
The interview process at Babcock & Wilcox is similar to competitors. There is a basic skills assessment
which covers topics including but not limited to reading, writing, articulation, and basic math. Applicants
must bring their resume with them to the interview. Some applicants go through a email screening prior to
progressing to an in person interview. Former employees have reported that it is important to show that
you are capable of coping with stressful situations, working in a fast paced environment, have a flexible schedule,
and communicating with colleagues. Once through the screening process, all new hires are required to go through
a basic training.
