    IT Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CannonDesign in August 2014.

    Interview

    It took about 2 weeks before I was contacted. But, when I contacted, I was not scheduled for interview because my salary range expectation was high. So, I emailed back HR and lowered down my expectation and I got the job interview. However, I didn't get job. It was 2 people on site and one IT person, and HR on Web/Video. Most of the times I was talking to the IT person, the local managers were like observing me. I felt that one of them was not that friendly. After a week, I emailed back and found out they picked someone else. I am not sure if other candidate got the job because of lower salary expectation.

    One interview - but sent my portfolio in multiple times. Took an inside friend to get the interview. Principal interviewing was 30 minutes late to interview. Was very friendly in the interview but once i started there, hardly said 'Hi' in passing.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CannonDesign (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process is very lengthy; but I was told this in advance. I really appreciated that I got to meet many members of the team in advance as well as tour the workplace. I think one of the most important pieces of a job is knowing if you 'feel' good about the people.

    Interior Designer III/Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CannonDesign (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Cannon Design conducts a rather long interview process, involving 2-3 meetings

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiations, they wouldnt move on salary but that was 10 years ago. Finding good designers is getting harder and harder so I think they work with prospective employees more

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at CannonDesign (Baltimore, MD) in May 2011.

    Interview

    We had a Go-to-Meeting interview and then I got an offer a week later. I visited before I accepted and they were very personable and willing to answer all my questions. A great experience overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you change jobs so often?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. They met me half way on the salary range I gave them. I thought that was fair, even though more money never hurts anyone. If you feel like negotiating, go for it. (in a respectful and professional way of course)
