    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Syska Hennessy.

    Interview Details

    The people interviewing me were completely unprepared. They kept apologizing for everything they hadn't done, which only made things more annoying. It was an absolute insult to have wasted my day for such amateurs. Through the course of the limited dialogue it became clear that Syska is a place for the average. They couldn't lead the way out of a paper bag. I made no effort to follow up. No regrets.

    Interview Questions
    • Syska was completely unable to answer my questions about current industry trends, markets, and how their company is adapting and responding them. Even worse, they didn't want to hear about anything that has happened in the last fifty years. The whole Q&A portion lasted about two minutes as a result.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Syska Hennessy in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    i was called in for an interview, after submitting an application through their website. the interview lasted about two hours, I met with 4 engineers and the group director who walked in and out of the room for no apparent reason. the interview felt more like an interrogation than anything else. we discussed technical aspects of engineering, codes and work ethic. overall i thought the interview went fairly well, but i never heard from the company again.
