    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at CHA (Atlanta, GA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I got a very short phone interview, the interview was very easy and the HR was very nice. The questions were simple, more about my knowledge about the company and my personality, nothing about really major or professional knowledge. I did not finally get the internship just because they do not have position in my major.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Albany, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CHA (Albany, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My interview was two phone interviews, one with a HR specialist out of Atlanta, then with my 2 future managers. Typically the second interview is on site, but due to prior obligations I wasn't able to do this. The interview was mostly behavioral, and was just a conversation about past work experience and campus involvement. Overall it was a very easy going and enjoyable process, which reflected the culture at CHA very well.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CHA.

    Interview

    Very straight forward, asked questions about proficiencies and about education. The interview was scheduled by HR and with the manager of a team. I felt as though there was no preparation that could have been done. To be honest it was one of the easiest interviews that I have experienced.

    Assistant Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Syracuse, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CHA (Syracuse, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in person interview, very technically based and focused on the position and it's tasks as opposed to my personality. The interview was short, about a half hour long and consisted of one employee in the room with me and another on the phone in another office. They are higher up in the group but oversee the hiring for my department.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CHA (King of Prussia, PA) in January 2015.

    Phone interview with HR person
    I was then offered an in-person interview. 3 interviewers, all upper level engineers and employees at the office. They started by telling me about the company and the work they do all over the region (lots of detail). Asked me about my internship experience, level of CAD knowledge/skill, courses i took, my senior engineering design project and how that project allowed me to experience teamwork and accompanying issues. Asked about salary expectation and willingness to work overtime if required.

    Senior Engineer/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at CHA.

    Interview

    Completely unprofessional. Wasted 90 minutes on a phone interview with them only to be completely ghosted with zero follow up from them despite reaching out 3 times following the interview (2 emails and a phone call).

    Some other points:

    -They seem to like to grow by acquisition and don't necessarily understand the new engineering markets they are trying to break into at a corporate level.

    -The also do not seem to understand the geographical markets they are trying to break into. For example, they are trying to break into my market in a specific discipline and seem to be looking to pay 20-30% under the market rate for someone in that position.

    -They will use misleading job descriptions and salaries to lure you in.

    -It seems that they are looking for someone desperate or someone who does not know their worth.

    Interview Questions

    • Salary requirements. They are looking to pay well under market rate for the area.   1 Answer
