    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Atkins (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was a light hearted phone conversation with my future manger. Was more curious about me & my personality rather then my resume. Wanted to see if I would be a good culture fit and being willing to learn at the pace he required.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Atkins (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    In a word, INTERESTING! One stage interview which i felt went fairly well but never got any feedback other than they needed to see more people out the batch i was seen in before making a decision on my suitability. I never got a call back telling me i was unsuccessful and why after this additional batch of people was seen.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Atkins (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Standard online application where you upload your CV.
    Then invited to an assessment centre about 2 months after. At the assessment centre had private interview, though another assessor joined mid-way through, and team exercise which was building a paper tower. There were about 4 other candidates there. They gave you a presentation about the company (good if you hadn't researched them) and let you meet some of the team. They also provided lunch which was good :)
    Offered the job a month after.
