    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Atkins (Bryan, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a corporate recruiter who was pleasant enough but when she asked me what other companies I was interviewing with, I told her that I would rather not say and didn't know why they needed to know the specific companies I was interviewing with. That seemed to throw her off. After that, I got set up with a phone interview with one of their senior engineers which went really well and I received a positive impression of the company from this interview.
