    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairborn, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AECOM (Fairborn, OH).

    Interview

    I was randomly contacted by a recruiter for an interview. I went and the hiring authority talked about his ANG career as a commander the whole time (we met at Starbucks for my interview). He talked about the guy who they originally hired for the spot and talked about how he was selfish, demanded too much money, and how they wanted someone else. Then he went on to say they had sent my resume to the Prime contractor and they were all excited to have me on and the position was being saved specifically for me. Three days late I get an email saying they selected someone else. Shady hiring practices and I'd be interested to see how they fare on their DCAA audits.

    Interview Questions

    Entry-Level Project Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Applied online and went through a phone interview with HR and a video interview through hireview. Then got invited to their fantastic Friday event. Got to meet the hiring managers the evening before the actual interview and discuss the position and the company itself. Hiring managers were really friendly and interested in candidates. There were 5 other candidates who applied for the position. Although it was an entry level position, they all had masters or cpa. I am disappointed that didn't get the job but I understand that there were better candidates and I believe it was a fair hiring process.

    Interview through the Friday Event. It was great. The manager will talk with you during the event, so you won't be nervous during the interview. My concentration is wastewater, and I didn't get the offer after the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AECOM (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within days received a call from HR. After two HR phone interviews, and two weeks, I was scheduled a phone interview with the Hiring Mgr. (VP of Global Real Estate). This was the shortest phone interview I've ever had. He said that he was so impressed with my resume and background. Basically showered me with compliments and said he will have HR call me in a couple days to come in for an in person interview. I never heard back from them. I had to call HR a week later to get an update, and then I was told they went with another candidate.

    Environmental Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AECOM (Fort Collins, CO).

    Interview

    A phone interview and face-to-face interview with a panel of 4 scientists. They gave me very positive feedback in the interviews and were on the verge of a job offer. After filling out an overabundance of paperwork and wasting even more time with back-and-forth emails to the project manager of the photochemical modeling group, the interview team "collectively" did not feel it was a good fit. No other elaboration. When I requested an explanation, she was very rude and unprofessional to me. Based on the many negative reviews of this company, I was very happy to take a job offer elsewhere.
