    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM in October 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty typical process. The recruiter called to conduct a brief screening interview to gauge my general qualifications and interest in the position. The in-person interview was pretty typical. The interview was with a three person panel where they each asked behavior questions such as, "Tell me a time when..." and so forth. At the end, they did ask me to provide a writing sample.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AECOM in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted after about two weeks by a person in HR. After this initial phone screening I had an interview over the phone with the hiring manager where I explained some of my education and experience. About one week later I was contacted by HR to schedule an interview in person. I replied with my availability. After several days with no response I followed up with my updated availability. The HR person indicated they were still "very interested" in setting up the interview. I did not hear back for another week, wherein I followed up again. I never heard anything back from the final follow up.

    Overall I'll take my experience as an impression of Aecom's HR and hiring practices as a whole -- I wouldn't waste your time with applying or interviewing; these people are clowns.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AECOM (Houston, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was relaxing. However, they put phone on speaker and their voice cannot be heard clearly. Overall, the questions are not difficult, but did not give an expecting time line for the next step, just mention that they will hand over the file and answers to HR manager and he will decide.
