    Environmental Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AECOM (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and got a call pretty quickly. They wanted to set up a phone interview. Things seemed fine at first, but then the HR person became dismissive and kind of sexist. When I told him what I did, he paraphrased what I told him starting with "so you just do X" and I told him, "well, no I added value by Y and Z." He asked if I applied anywhere else, I told him "no, this was the only company I'd applied to" (which was the truth). He paraphrased with "but you're looking at other positions too?" And I said, "well if this doesn't work out I will continue looking". I was confused, because it felt like he either wasn't listening or was just trying to put words in my mouth. The final straw was when he asked if my husband would be okay with me doing fieldwork. It was a frustrating and confusing process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Excellent interview process. They really look for a good fit. The company recruiter was great. I received an offer right away after meeting with hiring manager. The process did involve extensive background check.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions really are standard until you reach the actual hiring manager. Then the questions are more about your skills and ability to do a good job. However, I interviewed when the company was AECOM. The culture has changed since they bought URS. URS culture emphasizes the bottom line with little regard for your needs.   1 Answer
