    Civil Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates.

    Interview

    Met with a representative at a career fair and got a phone interview the next week. The interview was with someone in HR and was extremely broad and short. I did not feel like the questions were enough to really express who I am and my experience. They then said they would get back to me within a week whether or not I would proceed with the interviewing process; it was a month before I got my rejection email.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I was connected to the company through a undergraduate field project at my university. I had an initial phone interview asking basic questions about my experience and interests in the field of Civil Engineering. About a week later I was asked to come in for three 1-on-1 interviews that lasted about 30 minutes each. Each interviewer spoke about the company and detailed on basic descriptions of the job, while also probing me further about my experience and throwing in occasional basic interview questions. I was then taken to lunch by two current young professionals at the office. I heard back approximately a week later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates.

    Interview

    My HR person was very nice. The interview started by telling the interviewer a little bit about myself and progressed from there. Overall a great conversation and I am very impressed with Kimley-Horn. I would recommend having some questions prepared to ask the interviewers, as there was a lot of time for me to ask questions and I think it helped both parties to learn more about each other, the individual being me, and the company as a whole.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates (San Jose, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Went to a career fair at my university and heard back within a month about coming in for on-campus interviews. The on-campus interviews were conducted by an engineer and an HR staff for approximately half an hour. The on-campus interview went well, so I was scheduled to come in for an on-site interview (within a month's time). There, I talked to senior-level management and mid-level planners, and was able to ask them about specific projects they were working on. The interview process was pretty casual and the staff I met were all very welcoming. I was asked mostly qualitative questions about relevant projects and how classes I took gave me the skills required for the position. HR was fantastic on keeping in touch and checking in with me throughout the entire process. I received prompt responses and emails whenever I had questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The process of interviewing with this company is usually tiered. First, you meet with lower level employees (usually at the same pay grade as you, maybe a little above) and they take you out to lunch in a more informal setting to see how well you would fit in with the office and see if personalities mesh. The second (and possibly third) portion feature higher ups that usually go into the formal, more predictable questions concerning your educational and work experience background. Questions are pretty standard, but they want to make sure you are the type of employee that does not mind/thrives working in environments that have you working very long hours.
