    Environmental Analyst/Biologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Analytical Environmental Services in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was the shortest interview I have ever had. 20 minutes, maybe 25 minutes tops. I am not sure why this company even called me in for an interview and why they just don't list the position as biologist. I met all of the requirements listed in the position announcement, but about 10 minutes into the interview it became clear that what they really wanted was a biologist to do field work and then come in and write reports, permits, CEQA documents, basically everything. My experience is that biologists are not good permitting specialists because they are not familiar enough with the regulatory process. That and they are so busy focusing on field work that they don't have the time to give the customer quality service on permitting follow-up. I told them that I was an expert in permitting and had experience with CEQA / NEPA writing, but all the interviewer could focus on was my lack of biological experience. I'm sure that the place is not just staffed with biolgists and that I could have been a solid employee there. Horrible interview. There was very little back and forth and his attitude became increasingly negative towards the end of the interview. Interviewer made me feel like I was totally worthless and that I was wasting his time by being there. The biggest clue that I wasn't getting an offer was the fact that he never once mentioned compensation. If I got the job I would have immediately started looking elsewhere.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Analytical Environmental Services in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    i used a head hunter to land this job. she was instrumental in getting the compensation package i needed to make the position palatable. I don't recall that the interview was anything out of the ordinary. I had the skills they were looking for and was willing to learn other aspects of the the consulting business.
