    Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Big Waste of Time! I was reached out by the HR Recruiter via email who subsequently sent me a questionnaire, I filled it out and then a video interview was scheduled one week later. The whole process was very unprofessional and just random. During the video interview, they couldn't even get the meeting equipment to work properly to have a functioning video interview! That was the first sign that I shouldn't have interviewed in the first place. Never mind you that I made travel arraignments to come in for their last interview. They just don't know what they are doing. Avoid this place at all costs. The whole process was so slow and I still haven't even gotten a response yet. Thanks but no thanks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gensler (San Francisco, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Everyone was very friendly, and it was more of a monologue presentation of your portfolio. You do share screen with the panel interviewers, so it's not as scary as you think. They will most likely ask you couple questions as you present your portfolio, but not much other additional questions after. Also have a reason WHY you applied to that specific branch.
