    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was quite long winded. I met a representative at a conference and had a series of interviews soon after. I had four interviews in all and the last two were exclusively with my prospective team. They flew me in to their office location for my final interview and showed me around the place and introduced me to their projects. The whole process went on for about 4 months.

    • The interview was pretty straightforward. They did a good job of ascertaining if I would be a good addition to their team.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was not a whole lot of negotiation. I was told that they had a fixed package. However, they did offer me a sign on bonus.

    Project Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter in Pennsylvania. We had to reschedule our initial telephone interview 4 times times as every time the recruiter had a personal issue or was called into an emergency HR meeting. I was patient as I thought I would be a good fit for the position. We finally connected and she wanted to know why I was interested in the position when it was obvious I was OVERQUALIFIED. The recruiter said she would forward my resume to the hiring manager for consideration to see if she still wanted to interview me. I never heard back from the recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • The recruiter tried to pin me down on what salary I wanted. I wanted to know what the salary range was and was told it was too broad to share; that it would predicate on what the person would bring to the job.   Answer Question

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was relatively standard. They initially had a recruiter review my information and then setup a phone interview which took approximately 20 minutes. After the interview, the recruiter informed me that they would forward my information onto PB. After 2-3 days, I was contacted by PB to schedule an interview. It was relatively short notice, but was nothing out of the ordinary. I met with two mid/high level marketing execs and actively participated in the interview. Much of the talking was done by PB, except for theoretical/conversational scenarios. I came with questions and seemed to go relatively well, but I was probably lacking some technical experience they were looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • None, pretty standard. I was surprised that they did much of the talking - explaining PB and what they're looking for.   Answer Question
