The process took 2 days - interviewed at AECOM.

Interview Details – Interviews are handled by the business and depends on the interviewer. depending on your position, it can highly skill-based questions or more problem-solving. the most important thing is to do the home work to understand what the position is asked for in the short run and be ready to share what your long-term goals are.

Interview Question – Believe it or not, some folks aren't even prepared to answer the simplest questions, such as why did you decide to join.... or even just discuss job-specific or -related current trends/news etc.   View Answer

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Albuquerque, NM

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at AECOM.

Interview Details – I went to a single interview in 2007. I feel I was evaluated more for my personality and fit with the team than my professional qualifications. The interviewers were my future manager and coworker and I felt like I connected with them immediately. I got an offer and accepted it the following day.

Interview Question – The interviewers were very interested in what I did outside of work and when I mentioned online video games, specifically World of Warcraft. The manager then asked me if I were hired if I would be willing to transfer my character to their server and play with them. That was a VERY unexpected question!   Answer Question

Civil Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chelmsford, MA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AECOM in July 2013.

Interview Details – Applied on company website. Followed up with call to office HR. They called me for an interview shortly after. I interviewed with 2 managing engineers. That's always better than HR people because the questions were all about my prior experience. No curveball HR questions. Second interview was with several team members I would be working with. It was almost more of a get-to-know-you session than an interview. I think there were several candidates that could do the job technically but they wanted a good fit personality-wise.

Interview Question – Nothing unusual.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. I wish I did though because raises are few and far between.
