    Landscape Architectural Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at SWA Group (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.


    The interview was conducted via phone. Although the woman I interviewed with seemed nice enough it was a pretty stale and boring interview. The questions she asked me primarily included what software I was comfortable using or proficient with. The whole affair left me feeling uninspired but I imagine they must have to interview quite a few candidates, so they probably need to have a certain protocol.

    Interview Questions

    • What drew me to apply to the company? What kind of design software are you proficient with? Such as Rhino, Grasshopper, Lumion, AutoCAD, all the usual programs.   1 Answer
