    Entry Level Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orange, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AECOM (Orange, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy and quick. 1-week process. First telephone screening with HR and after two days I got an email for an in person interview at orange county office with the hiring manager. No technical questions. he just asked me about my work experience and past projects. I got rejected and it was very disappointing for me because they told me that I am fit for Mechanical Engineer 2 position. If they really liked me and impressed with my experience they should hire me. They are getting experience candidate at this level which is good. I can get less time to learn and help the company with future projects. I didn't understand about their thinking. That disappoints me.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    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.
