    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at HOK (Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HOK (New York, NY) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online and met directly with Office Manager (never spoke with HR or met with that department). Initial communication was pleasant and interview was equally as pleasant. Office atmosphere was really quiet and interviewer provided a pleasant conversation. Questions regarding qualifications were not directly asked so be prepared to sell yourself answering the typical questions asked but are not asked during this interview.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at HOK (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Long -- Initially contacted by recruiter who did initial screening and coordinated the first interview and then there were a series of other interviews that followed. Recruiter was not able to finalize the decision. I requested permission to contact company directly to build up relationship with HOK with the hope that I would be contacted again when they were ready to hire for the position. I managed to maintain the communication open and eventually the company invited me for a few more interviews and after several emails and phone calls I received the offer to join the firm. It was a long process - that started with the assistance of the recruiter, and the hire was done 8 months later. HOK said they had paid the recruiter for their service, but I am not able to confirm if this took place.
