    Mechanical Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HDR.

    Interview

    I was referred by HDR current employee (alumni). A few weeks after I submitted my application through their online system, I have been contacted by an engineer to schedule for an onsite interview. The day before the scheduled interview (~7pm), I got a call from the person telling me that the manager won't be available for the interview on the next day. And thus the interview was postponed to the next week. During the interview, I met their manger and the interview went very well. Mostly technical questions - you need to know what you've been doing and what they are looking for in very details. No tricky questions. Make sure you know your resume very much. After the interview, I was toured around their LEED-certified office. They did not get back to me after the interview. I sent a thank you note after the interview and followed up in 2 weeks. But they just totally ignored all my emails. How rude the company is and how much effort it will take for them to simply replying my email - saying like position has been filled or something. The company lack management and I will never consider this company. It's their loss.

    Traffic Engineer EIT Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HDR (Tampa, FL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Upon applying for this position, it took about 2 weeks to get a call back that I was selected to get interviewed. I arrived there 15 minutes early and waited about 10 minutes before the interview started. I interviewed with 2 engineers in the office and they took turns going back and forth asking questions. Before the questions began, they thoroughly explained the position, the benefits, and briefly described the company. The Q/A was very smooth and not stressful at all. In between questions, they would jump in and either talk about the specific position or about their position. It ran for about an hour and the majority of it was them asking questions about my experience and how does it fit with this position. After the interview, I was given a tour of the office. (I just interviewed today, I will update this post if I get an offer)
