    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Austin Commercial (Dallas, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    This was a fairly laid back interview. Much of the time was spent getting to know the company and interviewee. Very standard to easy questions were asked. The company seemed very solid and it is a huge bonus that they are employee owned.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Austin Commercial (Sacramento, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I contacted corporate HR personnel via university alumni job board. We met shortly thereafter in 1:1 interview and discussed qualifications, expectations, company policies, training, benefits,etc. It was a relatively informal process with this particular HR professional. The interview centered more around cultural fit and basic qualifications, rather than in-depth knowledge.

    Negotiation

    I knew what I wanted, and when they offered lower, I asked for more and explained why. They met my request.

    Field/Office Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Austin Commercial in September 2011.

    Interview

    I met the company at a career fair on campus and I was offered an interview the next day. The person who interviewed me was the HR rep. First the interview began 45 minutes late. Then, the interviewer told me that it wasn't so much an interview as much as describing what the company was about then answering questions I had, then him asking questions from looking at my resume. There weren't any basic questions that I was asked such as "where do you see yourself in 5 years" "tell me about making good decisions", the only question that was normal was one asking why I wanted to work at Austin commercial. I did have to do some quick math on the spot doing calculations of simple numbers, very easy though. Overall it was a strange interview, but not difficult.
