    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CDM Smith.

    Interview

    Initially spoke to the internship coordinator located at the Boston headquarters. Had an in-person interview with 4 members of the company. Talked about my resume and my previous work experience. Total time was about an hour and a half. Spoke to each person for roughly 30-40 minutes. Finished with a tour of the office where I was able to meet other people who worked there.

    I interviewed pretty late in the game, so I was offered the position within the next week.

    Internal Communications Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CDM Smith (Boston, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had an enjoyable phone interview with someone in HR, who told me they'd get in contact by the end of that day to schedule an in-person interview. Four days passed with no word so I reached out via email to check back on the position and again never received a reply. I certainly understand when I'm not the right candidate for a position, however being notified of that is much more preferable than being completely ignored.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CDM Smith.

    Interview

    Very simple and basic phone interview about self and experience. Was not bad at all, however, the interviewer seemed preoccupied. Difficult to talk to someone and answer their questions when that person seems to not be interested in your response.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume, was contacted by their HR, and then scheduled for an in-office interview. Receptionist was very nice and offered me something to drink (hot tea, coffee, or water) while I waited. I had multiple 1:1 conversations with both junior and senior staff and at the end they took me to lunch. Everyone was very pleasant.
