    The people on the inside are better than the leaders at the top

    I worked at HNTB Companies as an intern for more than a year


    All of the people I worked with in Kansas City and talked to around the country were incredible and passionate about their work. I loved being in that atmosphere daily.


    The leadership of the company isn't stable and isn't always transparent. There are nuances it took me a year to notice, but negativity toward the leadership was definitely obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees. Do a bit more traveling and understand why they work for you in the first place.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HNTB Companies.

    Interview Details

    It was a very simple and organized process. The recruiter from the Corporate Office gave all the details, spoke with me personally and he set the tone from the beginning. The interview questions were on point, the interview process was structured well. I was very impressed with the two civil engineers who interviewed me, both happened to be female. I was very fortunate to end up working with them. Not only gifted and determined to deliver outstanding projects, they set the bar for excellence across the board. Participation in professional groups, the local community and the company is encouraged and rewarded. I felt at ease during the interview, afterwards I was called and received an email in a very timely manner. I was not left without hearing back for any length of time, for which I was grateful.
