    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview after career fair. Expected a general, behavioral interview but it was a technical interview. It started off with going over my resume, then started asking simple technical questions to more sophisticated ones. I wasn't asked to actually code anything, but I was asked to explain the algorithm that solves the problem as well as time efficiency.

    There will be 1 or 2 rounds of interview, depend on your interview panel. Both will be on-site. The interview probably in a hour. For junior position, there is an expectation to re-train you after you get hired, so they will mostly asking about the skills that you put on your resume to clarify how deep you know about that field. Technical interview question will mostly be typical work day problem, rather than programming-challenge problem.

    Q and A interview with four employees in separate interviews. Pretty traditional questions. Nothing that made you think hard. They were not able to provide much information on the actual product due to the nature of the program.

    Senior Lane Tech/Motor Vehicle Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cherry Hill, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Cherry Hill, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview Details

    They discuss about the functions of the job per-say, they asked if I could work overtime and on weekends. They tell you about the uniforms, jackets, shoes and other supplies they give you. You are asked to fill out a employment questionnaire. I filled out an application while my vehicle was being inspected. I didn't accept the job, because I already had one. I was released from the job six months later. And so, they called me and asked if I was interested in working for them. I accepted, went for training for two weeks after I passed the state test and then. I started working and making good money, and best of all. "I met a lot of people".

    Interview Questions
    • There were no hard questions, the only difficult thing about this job was not knowing enough of the functions of the vehicles. In two hours they read to you all the questions and answers of the test, that contain questions regarding the emissions, and functions of vehicles. This you have to memorize during your lunch break. And then, prepare yourself for the state test.   Answer Question

    Principal Project Controls Engineer Interview

    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.
