    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates.

    Interview Details

    30 minute phone interview followed by a standard in-person interview and a tour of the office. We generally just talked about my background and what would be expected of the position. It was laid back overall, and was generally not too stressful. It felt like they had already decided to make an offer and were just checking for any reason not to hire me.

    Walked around the office and met some of the employees. Not a very formal process. Sat down with the department manager and talked about my previous work experience. He asks you what you want out of a job and tries to get a feel for you. If you will fit in with everyone and if you would enjoy working here.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a Rice University's job and internship database. They replied in three weeks asking for a 15 minute phone interview. It wasn't very hard, just some questions and then the recruiter explained the job specifics. I didn't hear back from them until two months later though, when they asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I was interviewed by my future boss - it wasn't a very difficult interview, they didn't ask mind-boggling questions - we mostly went through my resume. They called me in less than a week with an offer. Everyone I talked to was friendly and helpful!

    Interview Questions
    • Would you put schoolwork or your job first? (I was interviewing for a part-time job that would last for a year)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate my salary, only my start date. My future boss was flexible.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR to set up an interview.
    Then contacted by Hiring Manager. (Could have came straight from Hiring Manager) I forgot. It's been a while. The interview was with 4 other engineers. Depending on who interviews you, you might be asked questions or you might just be brought up to speed on what to expect in the job in terms of working interdisciplinary. Most of the questions were behavior based. Asked to talk about schooling and those projects and experiences.

    Negotiation Details
    Was able to negotiate salary by about 2000. Good thing I did as we didn't receive raises for a while due to economy downturn.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was given an over-the-phone interview with HR who set up my in office interview. My in office interview took place at 4 pm on a friday afternoon as the workers there were scrambling to meet their deadlines for the day. During the interview I spoke to my potential supervisor, four of his peers, and two shareholders. Most of whom were bothered by having to interview someone at this time, one shareholder even asked if I was "worth his time". The entire process took almost 3 hours.

    Waste Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from HR representative pertaining to a Waste Coordinator job with CRA. I was asked about previous experience, they seemed to be in a hurry to get the position filled so within a few days I was at the companies office and meeting with an associate within the hazardous materials field. Background questions about the field were asked, nothing too difficult. We continued to the next step of a background check. About a week into the background check I received another call to come back by the office to meet with 2 VP's, this was more of a hiring formality and was just easy questions to make sure I was the right person for the job (meeting lasted about 30 minutes). A week after that I was offered the position, had less than a week to accept the position.

    Reasons for Declining

    Position required previous experience and was offered the salary of an entry level environmental scientist, which even that salary was a below market number. Tried to renegotiate but CRA was non-negotiable on salary.
