    Architectural Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Perkins Eastman in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was set up by a former colleague who was hired by Perkins Eastman several months prior. He reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in interviewing for a position they were trying to fill. I accepted and was given a tour of the firm before the interview even began. The interview itself seemed more explanatory than anything else and they were quick to verbally offer the position to me.

    Senior Designer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Perkins Eastman.

    Interview Details

    The interview went great! Questions mostly related to my portfolio. I am glad they did not ask the usual questions like 'where do you see yourself in 5 years' and 'strengths and weakness'. They were specific about my experience, projects previously worked on and the interview was purely based on my portfolio and skills. It went on for almost an hour and had a verbal offer right away awaiting my decision. Got the written offer a week later. During the interview they made lots of promises portraying a work culture with great work-life balance, comp time off etc, turns out most of them were fake promises coz nothing like that was ever talked about once I accepted the job.

    Project Manager/Project Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Perkins Eastman in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with four senior managers, none of whom introduced themselves nor were sure what position I applied for. The most senior made a weak excuse to leave after only a few minutes, so I knew this was going to end poorly. Final email saying no thanks, did not get the names of their staff correct. Felt like they did not care.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Perkins Eastman in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a group interview with the office manager and three principals. The marketing director also sat in on the interview via conference call. The interview went well and I was asked to come back the following day for a writing/InDesign test. It's been nearly three months and I still haven't heard from them, despite following up numerous time. I guess I didn't get the job - thanks for letting me know!
