    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Callison Architecture.

    Interview Details

    On the same day that I was told by the head of Recruiting/HR that I was not a good fit, I received a call from another Recruiter wanting to schedule an interview. Talk about a company that lacks communication-- their offices are literally 10' away from each other. Despite the mixed message from the Callison recruiting team, I decided to pursue the interview process. Round one was a phone screen. Round two was in person with a Director of Design and a Director. Round three was a phone interview with a Principal, another Director, and a Project Manager. Then there was a lunch with the Principal and a Director. The process took over a month in total, but I finally accepted an offer and was named an Associate Principal after about a year... not too bad for someone who was originally told they were not a good fit! I've since learned that the Head of Recruiting/HR doesn't know what he's doing, so I'm not too offended by his original oversight.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty standard stuff. It was the multiple interviews that were tough. I'm use to a much quicker process.   View Answer
