    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at HNTB Companies (Kansas City, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard from recruiter the next day. Set up phone interview and then on-site. The entire process took 1 week. After the interview, nothing, no contact, no rejection notice, nothing. Extremely unprofessional especially when a face-to-face interview has occurred. Expected more from a company with a great reputation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at HNTB Companies (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    Informal interview, mostly resume based questions and information about the job itself. Asked when I would be graduating and how far class wise I am. Overall it was more of a conversation about the job rather than an interview as one would expect.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at HNTB Companies in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online in October, contacted late november/early december to see if I was still interested. Emailed and talked on the phone with an HR rep who set up the interview. I told the HR girl I could meet on a Wednesday morning or Friday afternoon (this was during finals week so there was no wiggle room), she scheduled it for Tuesday and wasn't happy when I told her that would not work. She also told me I would be reimbursed for travel expense (5.5 hour drive there and another 5.5 hours back) but I never was and when I emailed the HR rep about it, she did not respond. I was supposed to interview with 3 people, only 1 showed up. He was very rude, interrupted me while I was speaking before I could finish answering the question. He asked me about things that were not only on my resume, but I had spoken about 5 minutes prior (Do you have internship experience? When will you graduate school?). He checked his phone while meeting with me several times. He was clearly not interested in me or anything I had to say and acted as if I was wasting his time. Incredibly disrespectful to someone who traveled 11 hours to be there. The final straw was when he said projects need to get done on time regardless of quality and I was naive for thinking things should be done right the first time. I have interviewed for several internships and jobs and gotten an offer on every single one. I have never left an interview with such a bad impression of a company

    TransportationEngineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newark, NJ

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HNTB Companies (Newark, NJ) in April 2014.

    Interview

    HNTB was pretty organized in the hiring process. An HR Rep first calls you up and asks for your information and asks you to do a questionnaire and sets you up an interview depending on your availability. After finding an appropriate time, she emails you the information, time and address. Interview was basic simple straight about their proffered qualifications depending on the job position.

    My interview consisted of a lunch meeting with several managers from the local office. I have a follow-up interview at the local office to meet more senior managers within the organization.
