    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gensler.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an interview about 2 weeks after I'd applied. Overall very pleasant. Questions pertained to my skills and experience, rather than tricky character assessment questions. Pretty straightforward - no weird mind games. Going back for a second interview!

    Job Captain Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gensler (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed with 5 different studio directors in the span of two days to eventually find the one studio that fits my skill and interest. It was long but I'm glad they took the time to fit my needs instead of putting me in a random studio. The interviews itself were normal just like any other interviews you would have. My suggestion would be look up what kind of studio or projects you would want to work there so you have an idea going in.

    Job Captain Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gensler in May 2017.

    Interview

    Had a bumpy time actually getting an interview due to Gensler having to reschedule 3 times. Interview itself went really well. Met with a studio director and what I would call a market specific lead for about an hour and a half. Interview itself was pretty straight forward. I told them about my experience and it all seemed like a great fit. They are trying to expand into a new market for the specific office and were looking to grow a team with a specific set of skills and experience.
    A few days after the interview, I got a call from HR saying they thought it would be a great fit. Unfortunately, the salary they offered wasn't in the ballpark.
