    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM.

    Interview

    I was asked to meet with a program coordinator and senior engineer. Both of them were very outgoing and genuinely interested in measuring for fit - both on their end and on my end. The conversation started by them asking what I want to get out of my job and the position. They later discussed more about what they were looking for, and wanted to ensure I was someone they could work WITH. Overall, not as scary of a process as I anticipated; however, I prepared for it diligently (just like anyone should do).

    Systems Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AECOM (Arlington, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy overall. One interview with a panel and calls from HR afterwards with offers. Some negotiation was required to increase base salary since there are no bonuses offered. Drug test and background check was required. Overall pretty easy process and easier if you can get your foot in the door with someone you know who works there. I was up against other applicants but they chose me based on experience and referral. I would recommend working here, although there is not a lot of room for growth or bonuses unless you ask about that in the beginning or change departments to get a new job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AECOM.

    Interview

    It was well done with key people. I was asked very technical questions and given problem solving situations. I was provided the opportunity due to a referral from a friend who had worked there for a few years already. The team was a close knit group and got along well. It had an almost family atmosphere to it. Mind you this was while it was a legacy company before AECOM took it over. The interview was laid back and easy.
