- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management (Saint Paul, MN).
Phone interview with hiring personnel from a different office. In person interview with office manager. Second interview with a project manager. All three were simple, easy-going interviews. They want someone they can talk to easily. Just have a conversation with the person on the other side of the phone/table and you will do just fine. Be friendly, polite, and don't be shy.

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management (Houston, TX).
It took forever to get to the end of this interview process. I had to apply online, do a written test to send to HR, had phone interview with HR, then had 4 in-person interviews of panels of 2 or more people (including a lunch interview). All in all it took 4 months to get a final answer. No feedback from HR even though requested during that period.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management (Rolling Meadows, IL) in April 2015.
This company is extremely UNPROFESSIONAL. I was contacted by someone from the Houston, TX office about a position I applied for in the Rolling Meadows, IL office. This person said that my qualifications matched what the company was looking for, and instructed me to fill out a pre-interview questionnare. This questionnare was to be returned to said person and I would be contacted about the next steps in the interview process. I should also note that this questionnare also was meant to evaluate writing skills based on the depth and content of my answers. It took me 2-3 hours to fill out this questionnare that contained 16 questions that I had to answer in depth. So off I sent it, and it has been more than a month since I have heard from them. I have sent multiple follow up e-mails and even tried calling, but no answer. This company is extremely extremely unprofessional. After being contacted to fill out a pre-interview questionnare (16 questions long), in preparation for an interview, I think they AT LEAST owe me a quick email saying the position has been filled, or at least some details as to why I haven't heard back in over a month after two follow up emails. I would never work for a company so extremely unprofessional.

I applied online and was contacted to complete a pre-interview questionnaire. The pre-interview questionnaire was review and then I was contacted to have a phone interview. A few weeks after the phone interview I had an on site interview. I was interviewed by four people and took a 30 min. test.
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management.
Very comprehensive interview process. I had a total of three interviews before being hired. The recruiter was VERY helpful, and the Senior Partner who interviewed me really took the time to see if I would be a good fit for the company.
- I was asked to specifically describe how I would add value to the company in short order. Not an unreasonable thing to ask, but slightly intimidating. 1 Answer
There was no negotiation. I said what I wanted and they made an offer which I accepted.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management in November 2014.
I submitted my resume and cover letter online. A week later, they requested an unofficial copy of my transcripts, and a pre-interview questionnaire. After submitting these, 2 weeks later they contacted me again for a phone interview. The interview was average, they asked about my past internships and experiences. Moments when I worked in a team, what Environmental Engineering courses I took (I am a Chemical Engineer), and basic questions. I think the interview went well. The HR guy told me that they would forward my information to the HR representative in Boston and that she would decide who would go to the next round of in person interviews. They would select 4 people to go to their HQ and then they would select one... Haven't heard from them again (it has been 7 weeks since the phone interview). Doesn't really matter because I already accepted a job offer somewhere else.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management in September 2014.
I filled out the pre-interview questionnaire and sent a writing sample to them. I had a phone interview with the recruiter first. He asked some questions about my previous positions, and I gathered that he was the kind of guy who enjoyed a good sense of humor so we joked around a little bit. It went very well and he immediately referred me. I then had an in-person interview with who would be my manager. It was one-on-one, and he listed environmental laws and regulations and I rated my familiarity on them. I would mention a project or something related to an experience applying the laws/regs. This also went really well because I tried to be friendly and carefully funny, which I guess they really liked. My final interview was with three people at the office. I had the feeling that my manager had already decided to hire me at this point, so the final interview was a breeze. It was much more professional than my previous interviews, and so I refrained from being too funny. I can see why others would be intimidated by this panel interview. They ask several questions, but they seemed impressed by my resume and how many projects I had completed in a short amount of time, which is very desirable to the company. All-in-all the interview process was pretty standard, but there is a lot of reading the room, which is a very important skill in consulting anyway. If you're good at it and can demonstrate your people-skills, they will like you.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management.
Applied through employee referral. I was contacted by the recruiter and after couple of weeks I was called for an onsite interview. Interview was with a group and later one on one. Very professional. Interview questions were related to the job position. It took approximately 4 hours. Started with a panel interview and then followed by one on one interviews. Provided ample opportunity to ask questions.
