    I applied through special program via university. My coordinator arranged interview. Had two interviews. Both interviewers were from structural department. Interview was really relaxed, friendly, and informal. Questions were pretty simple, little preparation may not do any harm though.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at HOK in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews, one with heads of HR and practice, second with various directors. Initial meeting was more convivial, discussing experince and knowledge but at a more superficial level. This may have been down to the skill of the interviewer as it seemed like a friendly chat but still involved showing knowledge of company, the likely obstacles to overcome and the methods likely to be utilised. The second interview was a more lengthy , 90 minute grilling, with half of the senior team (of 6 directors) involved. This was looking much more at examples of ways of working, the problems overcome and the solutions found to return a positive outcome.
