    5hr interview with many exercises by category that would evaluate my knowledge on each design field. The first few were useful by last ones too exhausting and unnecessary. The team was really nice and receptive all along.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    only asked about previous positions and what those entailed instead of asking questions that pertained to the current role. The hiring manager emphasized "soft skills" but did not go into details as to what those were. Very rude and condescending. They seemed to just want details on previous positions without asking relevant questions for the job at hand. Interview was not focused and all over the place.

    Treasury Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Gensler (Aurora, CO) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Horrible. Recruiter reached out and sees when you are available for further information. There is no response back in emails after trying to confirm a phone interview. Recruiters take 5-7 days to respond to an email. No information if you got the job or not. If you want to keep a good image of the company, have decent communication with your applicants
