    Environmental Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Environmental Science Associates in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was very excited to have gotten an interview here. The process consisted of several emails, phone calls and one in person. Either the person interviewing was too busy to follow up, they didn't need the position anymore, or i didn't make the cut, but I never heard back. I was very disappointed that they didn't even have the courtesy to follow up and give me a letter or a nod.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Environmental Science Associates in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Personal interview with the branch leader was very relaxed, but focused and to the point. Within a week, I had recieved a request to interview with the rest of the senior office staff. That interview was great, and they were all very personable, yet professional. They seemed very passionate and engaged with their work and the projects they described.

    Reasons for Declining

    It was a difficult decision, since the office environment seemed very positive, and I enjoyed talking with all of the people I interviewed with. However, my professional goals are focused on a different segment of clients, and projects than what the position required.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Environmental Science Associates.

    Interview Details

    Communication was formal, although still friendly. I was contacted less than two weeks after submitting my application, and went in for an interview a week later. The actual interview was a very amicable, up-front process with senior associates, plus I got my parking validated. I was in and out of downtown in less than 2 hours. Granted, it took them two weeks to get in contact with me afterwards; although this isn't so bad in and of itself, it was a departure form the timely and rapid communication from before.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't think that they attempted to blindside me with questions or try to get a rise out of me. We had an honest exchange that involved everyone around the table and were able to connect on the specifics of the job, what mattered most to them as seniors and managers, and what mattered to me as a new hire.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Environmental Science Associates in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two managers at the downtown Los Angeles office. They were very easy-going and asked me straight-forward questions such as how my studies would help me succeed at ESA. Definitely a good idea to take a one-day CEQA class before interviewing at any company in the environmental consulting industry.
