    Interview

    It was a group interview with the entire team, so I was able to meet everyone and felt a part of the group. They asked great questions, and I had a good amount of time there.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HOK (Culver City, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Called me for an interview about 4 weeks after I applied online. Interview was scheduled for a week later. They were extremely curt, didn't make good eye contact and behaved almost uninterested in the interview. I was really surprised by how unprofessional this was.

    Sustainable Design Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HOK in August 2017.

    Interview

    The position I interviewed for was in another city so they had me go to the local office to do a video conference call. They asked my about my experience and projects on my resume like normal interviews. The description of the role listed a lot of sustainability/energy analysis skills/knowledge that I do have, but it seems like they only care about whether or not you have worked on any LEED projects. They kept asking (like 3 times within 30 minutes) me if I had any sort of LEED experience which I told them at the very beginning that it is not something that I have worked on directly but do have knowledge in. I talked about my other projects, which many hiring managers at other firms have expressed how impressive those were, but the two people interviewed me just gave me blank faces pretty much the entire process. In the end they said one of the team members would contact me about the decision and they didn't. It was just an automatic email saying we will notify you if we decide to hire you and that was it.
