    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AECOM (Chelmsford, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was asked to come in for an interview for civil engineer position. I met 6 people who asked me variety of questions. Each person was of different background and asked me questions relevant to their experience. Although my resume listed all my experience they went off track asking me completely different experiences that I didn't have but I told them that I was interested in learning the same. It felt like they were not sure what their expectations was from the candidate.

    Communications (Or Lack Thereof?) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AECOM.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me, to gauge interest in a marcom role within the company. The initial screening call went well, and a few weeks to over a month passed before I was called in for an interview. Between that time, I reached out to the recruiter to ask follow up questions (e.g. - does AECOM have a leadership program, programs geared towards female executives, etc.).

    He never responded to me, which, in retrospect, should have been a clue that the recruiting process, in this case, had its flaws.

    The in-person interview lasted a half hour. At the end of the interview, the hiring manager told me that I would have subsequent phone interviews with his team, and the recruiter would reach out to me to schedule. 1-2 months later, still no response. I finally reach out to the recruiter twice via email to ask what happened, and no response. Finally, he called, to let me know the role had been filled.

    While I understand the selection process is competitive, I didn't appreciate the lack of respect.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AECOM.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview with the companies talent acquisition specialist, followed by a one way video questionnaire.
