    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates.

    Interview Details

    After meeting the HR person at a career fair, she called me the next day to schedule an interview for the end of the week. The HR person took notes while someone in sales interviewed me. The interviewer was very deadpan and asked very personal, inappropriate questions. Some of the questions included "why consulting?" and "why Kimley-Horn?" He also asked me to tell them about myself and went through my resume in front of me picking out interesting bullet points that jumped out at him.

    Interview Questions
    • "Why do you volunteer at the Cancer Center?" It was a very unexpected question and seemed very personal and intrusive and not related at all to the job I was interviewing for.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates.

    Interview Details

    We met over lunch first. Very casual and comfortable. Second meeting was another lunch with 2 more team members. Third meeting felt more like an interview and was in the office. By this time, I knew the people pretty well and felt very comfortable with them. They wanted to get to know me personally as well as understand my work history. I felt comfortable asking questions about their expectations and would advise others to get a feel for the culture during this process. It's definitely a team-driven decision once an offer is made.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a on-campus interview shortly after meeting their staff at the civil engineering career fair on campus. while the first interview was short, the interviewer was friendly and relaxed and allowed me to show my interest and work experience while relating to me his personal experience at the company. The second interview took place over a few hours in their Atlanta office and their Norcross office. The staff were friendly, young, and relaxed. It was a very comfortable interview atmosphere. As with the first interview they allowed me ample time to convey my interest and limited work experience. I met with a total of 8 staff members ,including two of their "young professionals" and they very clearly expressed the expectations of the position and showed me what I could expect to learn as an intern there. Overall, Kimley-Horn provided an excellent interview experience and though I did not get the position, I will definitely apply again in the future.

    Interview Questions
    • there were no difficult or unexpected questions, the interview consisted of them asking me about my personal interests an experience since the position was an "unskilled intern"   Answer Question
