    Staff Geotechnical Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fugro (Norfolk, VA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I sent an application in a number of months ago, but I never received a response. Then my graduate school sent out an email saying Fugro was looking to hire entry-level geotechnical engineers and were interested in students getting their MS degree it in.
    I met with a representative of the company on campus for a 1 on 1 interview that lasted approximately 1 hour. The representative liked me enough that I was asked if I would like to come in for an in person interview at the office.
    The office interview was straight forward. When I got to the office, I had a brief talk with the representative I met on campus and then I went out to lunch with the younger staff members in the office. I was asked to give a 30 min presentation on a topic of my choice after lunch. The purpose of the presentation was more-so to see if I have communication skills and if I have no problems speaking with people and communicating an idea. The content of the presentation wasn't all that important.
    I was then passed around for 1 on 1 interviews with the higher ups in the office. Each interview lasted approximately 30 minutes and I have about 6 different interviews.
    After meeting with everyone, the company put me up in a townhouse they own near the office. That evening, on of the staff members in the office showed me around Norfolk and we did a little bar hopping. It was a good casual way to learn more about the company and for someone to also get to know me in a non-formal setting.
    The questions were not that hard. Standard questions about my personality, interests, why I applied and such.

    Interview Questions

    • If you could pick one, are you more so someone who enjoys starting a problem or finishing one?   1 Answer
    • Name 3 of your biggest strengths and 2 of your biggest weaknesses.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As an entry-level position, I didn't do any negotiating. Before the offer was made, the employer asked what sort offers have I received and if I know what kind of offers my colleagues have received so he has a good idea what the market price is. I probably could have given a higher salary than I was actually offered, but I wanted to be truthful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fugro (Leidschendam (Netherlands)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was arranged via a recruiter. It was a specific position which I was interested in but the interviewers kept the interview rather vague as more job opportunities were opened by that time - that was rather strange to me as I prepared for the specific position which I was interested in.
