    Environmental Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Providence, RI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc (Providence, RI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They only asked me 3 or 4 questions, mostly about my courses in college and what I learned in school. Then they discussed the job. Lastly, they asked if I had any questions, so I asked a few. They told me it would probably be a couple weeks before I heard back. After two weeks, I emailed one of the interviewers and it was only then that he told me they offered the job to someone else. Not sure they would have reached out to me otherwise to let me know the bad news.
