    I applied online – interviewed at Arup in October 2012.

    After a phone screening, I was invited for an in-person interview with a senior engineer and an HR representative.

Some questions were very technical, thus I had to demonstrate both knowledge and analytical capabilities within a limited time frame.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Arup in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with leader of the group and one of the members of the group I would be working with. They asked me typical interview questions of why I chose to study engineering, why I wanted to work there, etc.

    There was nothing technical. The most technical questions they asked were if I was familiar with certain types of software.

    The whole interview took maybe about an hour. The people and work culture seemed relatively young - a lot of people under 30.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Not able to negotiate (I did ask). All engineering interns are offered the same exact pay.

    Structural Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Arup in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Test regarding ability in desired area of employment as well as a visualization / intelligence test. The test was the most intimidating part, after that it was an enjoyable discussion with an engineer and an HR representative. Due to down economy it was several months before an in office interview with a principal and senior engineer. A presentation was required and a discussion followed. Again, the conversation was relaxed and enjoyable.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any specific questions that I remember being difficult, but the emphasis of the conversation seemed to be to see what level of thought I had given about how structural engineering impacts the other aspects of a project.   Answer Question
