Engineer Interview

Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at AECOM in June 2010.

Interview Details – I had first a phone interview which I thought that it went great. But my one on one interview did not went great. The interview was with the department manager and he made me feel very uncomfortable. Not because of the questions but they way that he did behave, he would ask a question and when I was given my answer he will look away or act uninterested on the answer. I felted at one time to get up and leave.
But I did stay through the whole thing. At the end I got the job but I have to say that I regret taking the job because the same hiring manager that I interview with end up not being a good manager.

Environmental Engineer Interview

Environmental Engineer
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at AECOM.

Interview Details – Applied online and then got asked for a phone interview which lasted almost an hour and a half. Very detailed questions and asked a lot of specific examples related to my area of work. I had researched the projects the interviewer had worked on previously and they seemed impressed by this. Was called back for a second interview face to face.

Interview Question – When asked about previous experiences I got no feed back to show reactions, it was a phone interview with two people on the line so it was difficult to know what detail to go into.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – told salary, no choice
