    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AECOM.

    Interview Details

    Called by a recruiter who found my resume online and set up an in-person interview. Had the in-person a few days later with my future manager. The interview was over an hour. I was provided with a detailed description of the position and career path available. Questions covered skills, background, interests, and knowledge base. Although it was one of the longest interviews I've ever had, it was very comfortable. The hardest part was waiting for the offer - although I received update calls, the offer didn't come for about two weeks.

    Treasury Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    In Nov 2013, I had a phone interview with an HR/Talent Acquisition person. He was about 15 minutes late and did not have my resume, cover letter or bio information in front of him. After scrambling around for a few minutes we proceeded. He asked the following questions:
    Have I been promoted at my current company or was I hired at the level I am at right now
    What do I do in my current role
    Why I want to leave my current company
    What challenges I face in my current role
    What I am looking to do in the future
    My current salary package
    The interview was about 20 minutes. I felt like he was rushing through it and not very engaged. Overall, the phone interview dampened a position and company I was otherwise very interested in.
