Intern Interview

Intern
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – No questions were out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Don't be wishy-washy in your salary expectations. Be specific and firm in what you would hope to make if you were offered a position. Make sure you understand the bonus program. This is a huge part of the compensation structure.
