    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn. After a few questions about my background, a phone interview was scheduled with a manager. Most questions were about my background and abilities within my field, nothing out of the ordinary. I was asked about my experience with certain design standards, my structural design and analysis experience, and any other relevant work experience.

    First interview, took about an hour. Interviewed by 2 managers, asking many questions about prior experience, a few hypothetical questions. Asked what do I expect to get from Parsons, what am I looking for from Parsons, how will I succeed... Entry level position so interviewers asked GPA from college, and focused on some course work.

    Principal Project Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very timely however it was well worth the wait. I started my interview process 6 months prior to receiving my offer. The interview process started with a recruiter just to ask some basic background information. The second interview was with the director of the west coast. This interview was more of a technical interview. The third interview was with the two project managers I would be working with on the project. This interview was a more personal interview about my work history, it also included my technical skill sets, and how would I handle certain situations. The last interview was with my client and it was very similar to the interview I had with the PM's. This interview was just to make sure that client would buy off on hiring and working with me through the course of the project.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I'm not entirely sure how they received my resume as I was putting out about 20 to 30 resumes a day through multiple avenues. However, once I had the interview it was only about 6 calendar days before they offered a position. The interview was pretty long, and thorough. Having me give a narrative of my history to fielding a few technical questions. The technical questions were all basic knowledge items, and nothing to trip you up. I think it was more of an attempt to validate the experiences on my resume.
