    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Acuity Brands (Conyers, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It began with a phone screen that went well, followed by an on site interview in Conyers GA. The questions were pretty easy. I had a series of of interviews with different members of the team for about 40 minutes each. Some of the interviews were technical some of them were mostly chatting I guess to get a feel if I was a fit for the team.

    Web Applications Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acuity Brands (Conyers, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    They called me in for a last minute interview. I met with 5 people within a 3 hour time slot. I was a little taken aback because most of the interviews were on the phone in their offices. Every interviewer seemed lost and gave me a completely different overview of the job.

    I don't think they know what they are looking for. They gave the recruiter feedback. The feedback was that I did not know JS well enough. They didn't ask any JS questions. An odd experience overall.

    It's a web applications engineer position so I expected development to be a requirement of the job. It is not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Acuity Brands in September 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with pretty basic stuff. Very generic boring questions that were googled off the internet. Watch out for the elimination questions that come near the end of the 40 min interview because missing those will result in a "thank you for your time". This company only cares about Georgia Tech, UGA, and some Georgia State grads. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time. If you don't believe me please look on LinkedIn.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Interview format was not consistent with what HQ HR communicated. Was told it would be panel format with 4 individuals, but it was with 3 people individually. Interviews were standard. However, one of the interviewers said negative things about the person who was previously in the position. I lost interest in the position after that point.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acuity Brands (Chatsworth, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible experience! Even though I`d read the reviews from other people but decided to give it a shot and what a mistake! I found Acuity Brands Lighting through a recruiting company. The first interview was over the phone without any notification someone from Acuity called me at 6:00pm which first I thought that`s one of those life insurance jobs so because I was driving I asked that lady to schedule another time which she offered next day at 10 am. She called at 10:50am; no big deal but at the same time not a good sign of being professional. Surprisingly through the recruiter they scheduled for a panel format interview. Well, hope they don`t send me an offer because I am not going to ever work in that company. 2 people came into the room with absolutely no smile the whole time asking me very technical questions which it would be difficult to answer when you`re not in front of the computer. I had never failed any interviews before; and my experience with them was absolutely horrible.

    Got a phone call from HR manager. The interview lasted about 30 mins.

After all questoins, he provided the brief description about offering position. Got a call back few days later saying I was not chosen for this position due to the lack of experience
