    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at RTKL Associates.

    Interview Details

    After I completed my online application I didn't hear back for more than two weeks, so I followed up over the phone, discovered and resolved the issue holding them up. Two weeks later I received an event invite, for an interview the next day. It went well though I didn't have a hard copy of portfolio with me. They took me on a tour around the office, and then I didn't hear back for more than a week. Their chosen method of rejection is to send you a form email on a sunday night.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at RTKL Associates.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back approximately 3 weeks later and had a phone interview. My interviewer was very nice and wanted to make sure that not only I was a good fit for them but that they were a good fit for me. I had an in person interview a few weeks later with two interviewers. I was expecting questions but they both just sat down and said "go ahead." so i started going through my portfolio and one of the interviews got up and left in the middle of my interview while the other one stayed and showed me around the office and thanked me. I heard back about a week after.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RTKL Associates.

    Interview Details

    My interview process included only 1 interview followed by e-mail communication. They were quick in making an offer, which I negotiated to increase my salary a little bit.

    My first impression was of a very well put together company, they made me feel welcome and the welcome package it's very informative.

    I was interviewed by three people at the same time, each assessing certain aspects of my profile.

    Junior Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RTKL Associates.

    Interview Details

    A survey is required for references if you get an initial interview. The first interview was casual with an associate. We talked about my work as a student, my study abroad travels, and what I envisioned for my future. The second interview was with the principal and two associates and although casual and free flowing chat, it was also a bit more in depth with more future career moves. The people I met with were very nice and warm. I was offered a position, but took another job with a different firm. I almost wish I would have gone with RTKL.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at RTKL Associates in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hired through a head hunter. Went through one interview with two vice-presidents present. Cordial and friendly in interview. The company has a great deal of forms you will need to fill out on the acceptance of an offer. They present themsevles very well as an employer however I found the workplace cold and impersonal once I got to working there. The leadership is very poor. and the warm welcome is quickly lost upon beginning work there.
