    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.

    Principal Project Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed 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 4 months - interviewed at Parsons Corporation in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial interaction was through emails. Then a phone interview with the HR Director. TI then had an in-person interview was with the manager I would be replacing and a person I would be managing. We had a detailed discussion about the range of work the department does and how my experience would fit. We looked at my website to discuss my work. The existing manager insulted my work so I was surprised when I was emailed a date in which I would be contacted for second interview. The date passed for the second interview. I had a second phone interview with the person who would be my boss which was very encouraging. This person said negative things about the first person who interviewed me. After the second phone interview I was told the second person's boss who going travel from the other side of the country to interview me in person and I would have to wait until the persons schedule was free to interview me. I waited another six weeks I emailed the HR director to find out where I stood. I eventually was told that the department was going to reorganized and there would be no position available
