    Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Perkins & Will in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very quick and easy application process online. After applying, I received and e-mail within the first day setting up a first-round phone interview. The phone interview was easy (it only took about 10 mins) and afterwards I was immediately set up for an appointment to meet in person. There are 2 in person interviews: the first occurs at the office with the hiring manager and then you are sent on-site to one of the company's campaigns to interview with someone else within the company. Both interviews are more informational. They ask you typical questions on previous job experience and your interest in the industry, but other than that it is easy.

    Environmental Graphics Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Perkins & Will in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    First spoke with the department head over the phone. There was no position available for my experience level but they were interested in future possibilities. I offered to stop by for a visit on my next trip and had two following meetings (separate trips, neither on their dime). My last meeting seemed promising in terms of leaning towards an offer, as I was introduced to various team members and given a tour. I never followed up to see if a position was ever made to fit my qualifications and assumed they went in a different direction.
