    Intern Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Clark Nexsen (Charlotte, NC) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Very corporate process for selecting candidates, with an interesting anonomous portfiolio evaluation systyem. Long waits of 4-6 weeks or more for information on selection. However, once the interview came, it was very low pressure and somewhat informal. Only one in person interview was required, and it was apparent the portfolio + resume review process pretty much decides who will get the offer, assuming the in-person interview isnt't a wreck.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. Very typical. It seems that personality and ability to communicate are a priority.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was done over the phone, and seemed inflexible for this level of position. However, it was a substantially more generous offer than multiple others for the same position type to begin with.

    Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Clark Nexsen in March 2012.

    Interview

    The application and portfolio review is a long process. The interview itself was short and casual. There was only one interviewer, the department head. He was accommodating and easy to talk with. He graciously offered a tour of the studio and some introductions to staff. The questions he asked were not unusual or anything unexpected. It was a very straight-forward, non-trick interview.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norfolk, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clark Nexsen (Norfolk, VA) in June 2008.

    Interview

    I was recommended by a former employee that moved to Clark Nexsen and initially had an interview with the Director of Marketing and then the President of the company. Clark Nexsen had an excellent reputation for their benefits, culture and at the higher end of the scale for compensation. I learned very quickly after speaking with the president of the company and learning about the culture and the company as well as benefits their reputation held true. They put a lot of weight into personality testing and education about the same. They have a person on staff that administers the Myers-Briggs test, evaluates your answers, provides seminars to then explain the results to new employees. In addition, they do team building exercises, etc. within departments to promote a cohesive environment. CN is a very employee oriented company not only with benefits but with promoting a healthy balance between work and home. Overall, just an excellent company to work for.

    Negotiation

    Unfortunately when I interviewed for the position I would say I was not very savy with salary negotiations. I did ask for a much higher salary than I was making at the time figuring I had nothing to lose and actually was given a little more than what I was looking for. Again, kind of reinforcing their reputation of being on the high end of salaries in the area. Advice for others would be to shoot high (especially if you have no real concern of whether you actually get the job) and negotiate as necessary. In general, always a good practice to ask high giving you more room for negotiation.

    Bridge Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clark Nexsen in April 2016.

    Interview

    Information was provided about what the company does, what they are looking for, the requirements for the position and the amount of travel expected. Very little questions were directed to me as if they were already not interested. Did not get a good feel about it. I was told I will be contacted later but that seems doubtful.
