    Interview

    The interview started with a phone interview after submitting my resume and cover letter. After, I went to the office to complete two more interviews. Pretty easy ( I could tell I was the front runner because I got along very well with interviewers and answered every question correctly).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AECOM (Clemson, SC).

    Interview

    Conducted on-campus at Clemson University, through the Co-op Program. I was interviewed by a Vice President of the company, who was truly interested in determining my potential for long-term employment, as well as my engineering aptitude and drive for success. I interviewed 4 other companies during the process, and sided with this company because they had a location in my home town, as well as anywhere else I would want to be.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an AECOM recruiter asking to set-up a phone interview. She suggested a date and time. I replied that the time would work for me. I provided a phone number that I could be reached at. When the agreed upon time occurred, the recruiter never contacted me. I sent an email back asking if she would like reschedule. Crickets. If this is how AECOM treats its applicants, I shudder to think how they treat their employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at AECOM.

    Interview

    I found the job on LinkedIn and reached out the the recruiter who posted it. The recruiter ushered me through the whole process after a phone screening and checked in periodically. The process wasn't defined upfront (ex: # of rounds) and I found out the next step as the process progressed. I had several 1X1 interviews with different managers in the company at multiple levels over a period of three weeks and enjoyed the conversational format of each 1X, as they allowed me to learn more about the company and people there and more accurately present who I am and how I think.
