    Treasury Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AECOM (Albuquerque, NM).

    Interview

    I went to a single interview in 2007. I feel I was evaluated more for my personality and fit with the team than my professional qualifications. The interviewers were my future manager and coworker and I felt like I connected with them immediately. I got an offer and accepted it the following day.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewers were very interested in what I did outside of work and when I mentioned online video games, specifically World of Warcraft. The manager then asked me if I were hired if I would be willing to transfer my character to their server and play with them. That was a VERY unexpected question!   Answer Question

    Senior Positiion Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South China, ME
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AECOM (South China, ME) in March 2014.

    Interview

    This is the worst decision I have ever made to apply a job with Aecom. A few days after my first interview with the landscape manager, I was told they were offering me a senior position and I received an oral offer one week later.

    However they have made me waited for a month and I didn't heard from them, so I called the HR to find out my status, they told me the hiring process is taking too long and I should move on if I am still looking for a job, because they are not sure when this application be approved.

    Honestly I have done research on Aecom, there are too many negative comment to read and I should have trusted myself it is a red flag.

    Interview Questions

    • They brought a junior designer to interview and the manager left her interview me alone for work in 2 hours. She asked me random questions and that is when I believe their employee is not as professional as I expected.   Answer Question
