Very Easy Interview

Engineering Intern Interview

Engineering Intern
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Thornton Tomasetti in March 2012.

Interview Details – Met principal through contacts from school. I was then forwarded to another principal which was more of a match for me geographically and interest wise. Interview was very informal and straight forward, even by internship interview standards. The entire things was very positive and welcoming.

Project Engineer Interview

Project Engineer
Chicago, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Thornton Tomasetti in November 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted by email to set up a meeting time. They didn't pay for or reimburse travel expenses to the interview. Met with several people. In general very pleasant open air atmosphere. The projects are very impressive and state of the art. Everyone was working heads down, could have heard a pin drop. In fact one of the people I met spoke in a "12inch voice" the entire time. I got the impression people don't interact too often. I didn't get the job offer, and I would have hesitated to accept if one was made.
