    Public Involvement Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at HDR in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    November 2014 - Went in for 2 interviews -- one with Hiring Manager and one with Hiring Manager and the department(Public Involvement) and everything seemed likely that I would get the position.

    After a week, I received a call that I did not get the position because I was 'too overqualified' and then mentioned that they could create a position for me but it would be in Minneapolis, MN. I told them that I was interested and they said they would get back to me. I waited after Thanksgiving break and followed up and the hiring manager still said that the position has yet to be created and that she would get back to me the next year (2015) and follow up with me. I responded that this sounded good and was just trying to be patient with this whole process, especially when the hiring manager apologized for this process not moving faster.

    I emailed the hiring manager Jan. 5th and when I didn't hear back from her by Jan. 7th, I called and actually spoke to her. She told me that there hasn't been anything new regarding the opportunity and that she would get a ahold of me if anything changes.

    So, to sum it up, I didn't get offered initial position because I was over qualified and they offered me a position (that hasn't been created) in another city and they have not been doing anything since the middle of November. It's now January 7th of 2015.

    Furthermore, this company has always interested me and I wanted to hold out for the opportunity to work with them but to be treated like this I am very discouraged and disappointed.

    Interview Questions
    • The hiring manager and team look at your resume and experience thoroughly and ask about your experience and give the chance for you to ask them questions as well. Pretty relaxed.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter because my resume was forwarded to her. Scheduled a phone interview within the week. The interview was with engineers and not HR, which was fantastic to learn specifics about the position right away. No surprise questions, really basic things related to your projects and background.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at HDR.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the hiring manager gave me a call a few days online. We scheduled a phone interview as I was not able to make it on time. After the interview a HR rep called me for some post-interview screening, so I thought things looked up. I didn't hear from them for a few weeks, till I emailed them and they told me that someone else had already been hired to fill the position. I think they should have at least sent me a rejection email when they made the decision to hire the other person

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HDR in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial response through e-mail and set up phone interview with HR person. After that, set up interview in person. A second interview was then arranged. After the second interview, they never got back to me. Even though I followed up properly after each of the three interviews, they did not even just send a polite letter to let me know they decided to pursue other candidates.

    Interior Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at HDR in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview in the interiors department at HDR a few months ago. It was a little awkward at first, but I just jumped into showing them my work. They seemed very quiet and reserved and that is not really my personality. I was looking for something a little more exciting.. in both my future coworkers and the projects that I would be working on... both were kind of bland.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't really ask me many difficult questions. They asked me about my current work experience including; project types, project load, how I was with juggling multiple projects.   Answer Question
