Graduate Transportation Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Tennessee Department of Transportation in November 2010.
Interview Details – The initial application and setup of the interview went very well. After arriving at the office, I had to wait about 20 minutes past the time of the interview. Out of the 4 people I interviewed with, only the HR woman seemed interested. The three engineers I spoke with did not seem interested at all. All the questions asked were from a general list. I caught them looking at the clock after 10 minutes. There was no discussion, just a scripted list of questions. When I asked questions, I was given minimal answers with no details. I also heard one of the engineers comment to another, "Only a few more hours of this, then we're done." It just seemed like they were ready to leave and go home the entire time.
Interview Question – What industry publications do you read on a regular basis, and describe the article that you learned the most from. Answer Question
