Environmental Engineer I (Energy Engineer I) Interview

Environmental Engineer I (Energy Engineer I)
Clifton Park, NY

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at ARCADIS US.

Interview Details – I was notified of open positions from a friend and fellow classmate from college. It started with a 30 minute phone "interview" where they talked more about what they do as a company as a whole and more specifically at their Clifton Park, NY office. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. They invited me up to their office for four individual 1:1 interviews. Again, the interviews were relaxed and as enjoyable as job interviews can possibly be. I had a couple behavioral questions posed to me, but they mostly opened the floor to me to ask as many questions as I wanted. They got back to me within a few days of the face-to-face interviews with a job offer.

Interview Question – How do you balance various projects and deadlines in your current job?   Answer Question

UXO TII Interview

UXO TII
Barstow, CA

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at ARCADIS US in July 2013.

Interview Details – In the UXO field, my experience in getting hired is over the phone and on-line. If considered, usually the HR will contact you by phone to submit the various required certifications on-line. Then, the pertinent information is exchanged as to who, what, when, & where the job is. It's very impersonal but this (w/ HR) relationship's crucial, since they are the ones key to getting hired.

Interview Question – It depends on each individual but for me it's always how much will we be paid and how?   Answer Question

Questions will be short, non technical and more personal. This can be 0.5 to 1 hr. Next will be a mid level manager, they will ask more experience based questions, how you will fit within the organization. You will likely meet with 4 to 5 people. A lunch may be provided. Interview can last 3-4 hrs or more.

Interview Question – Non specific, questions as this position was entry level   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They offered a Grade 5 at $43,500. I countered with a Grade 6 for $46k. I was told "with my skills, you will certainly move up within 6 mo". I've been there almost 2 years with nothing. They low ball everyone.
