    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AECOM (Dallas, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    An AECOM recruiter made a visit to our campus, took my resume and contacted me after couple months. I even forgot about them. they sent an email to attend an event called Fantastic Thursday where you meet the employees of AECOM and talk to them. next day was a panel interview.
    i believe they do that only for marketing and publicity. not in attention for hiring.

    Ecologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was approx 70 minutes long, including a 10 minute exam at the beginning which involved identifying around 30 different plant and animal species according to photographs.
    I travelled for 6 hours to get to the interview and despite getting positive feedback at the time I never heard from the company again. Regardless of getting a job offer or not I believe a rejection email at least should be sent to all participants, particularly when at the final stages of interviews. I was very disappointed with how the company dealt with this.

    Interview

    The first stage was a Skype screening. This included a CV review and discussing my skills/experience/ the job role. The second stage was a face-to-face interview covering the AZ values. I was asked questions on 3 out of the 5 values. I was also asked to do a high level case study. The info provided by HR was really helpful in preparation. Questions should be answered in the correct format (STAR).

    Principal Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AECOM (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional, relaxed, straight forward and technical however, took along time to do the three session interviews due to availability of the interviewers.
    Each interview session took an hour and the interviewer was genuinely excited to describe the role and the projects that the candidate would work on should he/she be successful.
    The interviews were based on open discussion which made it very easy to talk and understand both the company and the interviewee's expectations.
