    Environmental Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ARCADIS.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with 5 consecutive employees ranging from all over the hierarchy of the company structure: They asked me basic interview questions and were interested in my technical abilities for the job. I was very unhappy about the HR relations since I started trying to contact the HR recruiter and secretary after 3 weeks and they kept dodging my calls. After a month I called under a different number and they answered right away. I suspect they were trying to avoid talking to me, because I was informed I was the best qualified candidate for the job and the only reason for not being chosen was because of my race as I saw that each of of the interviewees were of Caucasian descent.

    Environmental Engineer I Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a university career services posting and worked with two different recruiters to get an interview at the local office. I interviewed in person with 6 people and it took 2-3 hrs. I heard back 3-4 weeks later. The offer came via email and the position salary, overview, and negotiation were handled by one of the recruiters I worked with.

    A Finance Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at ARCADIS in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen by an HR person at this company. More of her focus was on determining my current employment status (was I currently employed) than on my background and education related to the position.

    I found the phone interview to be insulting as an applicant, and I would never consider this company again for any position. Fire the HR lady who does phone screens.

    Entry Level Water Resources Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at ARCADIS in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process began with an online application and an employee recommendation. Soon after I had a phone interview with a recruiter who later scheduled an in person interview for the particular office I sought to work for. About a week later I came to the scheduled interview and was soon told by one interviewer that everyone had some last minute jobs to complete. Thus, the interview was done in bits and pieces and I was not able to meet with everyone as scheduled. There was not adequate time to ask all of my questions since everything was rushed. The interview concluded with a lunch interview with another interviewer. Since the main interviewer was not in the office when we returned, I called to thank him and let him know that I would be interested to know when I should hear back. A week after the interview, I called again with no reply. At the three week mark the recruiter informed me that the interview process was complete. At the six week mark I concluded that no one is ever going to contact me back.
