    Associate Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Gannett Fleming (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Gannet Fleming is a large company with offices throughout the US. I applied for an Assistant Architect position. The hiring manager gave me a call after applying online. We have a brief phone interview , with a follow up interview in person. I was interviewed by the head Architect in the NY office, as well as a Junior design member from the staff. The firm mainly deals with large civil type projects ( think transportation) . Their design arm is rather new here in NY. Their office is located right next to Madison Square Garden. Nice building, but too much security. The office its self lacks in natural lighting for the junior staff , with an open cubicle concept in the middle. The higher level staffers each have perimeter offices that block all and any worthy views. For an architectural office, one would expect their home base to be more in line with their design philosophy.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Gannett Fleming (Newport News, VA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process went very well. I was hired from out of state coming into Virginia, the managers at that time were fantastic and easy to talk too.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was short, Gannett Fleming IT did not offer any help with the moving expenses that I had pressed for, which was highly inconvenient!
    If I had to do this over again, probably not. This company is notorious for hiring high skilled people to do menial tasks. After I had been with the company for two years I found out the office that I was working at was under the radar by Corporate in PA. Possible to shut it down.
