Structural Engineer Interview

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arup (Los Angeles, CA).

Interview

Applied through online process and received a call from the office for interview. They organized an Interview Day on a weekend for about 20 or more university students. It was shocking because there were choosing few interns from the group that consisted of mostly undergraduate (as young as 2nd year) and less graduate students. I thought that was very disrespectful from graduate students' perspective or they are at a great disadvantage. They only asked four same interview questions (not technical!) to the students.

    Structural Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Arup (New York, NY) in January 2009.

    Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Arup (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Stuurde mijn CV naar het kantoor in Amsterdam en werd na 3 weken uitgenodigd voor een sollicitatiegesprek.

    Sent my cv at the Amsterdam office, and after 3 weeks I was invited for an interview. An associate, quite nice, interviewd me: it was not technical at all, but only, I guess, to assess my soft skills and in general my enthusiasm to work there.
