    Transportation EIT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Round Rock, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HDR (Round Rock, TX) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I attended a career fair where I spoke to a gentleman about the full time opportunities at HDR. A few weeks later I received a call requesting me to come interview, and scheduled the interview for the following week. The interview process was very informal, I interviewed with 2 managers. The entire interview was very conversational rather than question/answer. They gave me alot of opportunities to ask questions. I followed up with an email the next day, and received a call the day after asking if I would be interested in a different position instead, to which I agreed. After a week I emailed and asked if they had any updates, and they responded saying they would be back to me within a few weeks. Almost 2 full months later I heard back that they decided to pursue other candidates. Not very courteous or professional to take 2 months to follow up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HDR (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Personally gave me a 6-minute interview with very basic questions and very little room for conversation. The Interviewer seemed to be in a rush but optimistic about a follow-up interview. I never received notice of interest ( or noninterest) and received zero responses to my follow up email.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at HDR in May 2019.

    Interview

    Got a call from the HR to set up a video interview with the hiring team in a week. The interview was scheduled with 3 people. Revolved around my resume. Asked me about the courses I had taken in my grad school, the projects I did during my school years. Asked about my internship experience and what difficulties I faced while working. Explained to me what their structural group focuses on in particular and what my responsibilities will be. The interview was pretty casual and lasted about 45-50 minutes. Had to follow up for 3 weeks after which the offer came. The follow up process was pretty relaxing as the HR was very responsive.
