    Construction Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hill International (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Basic 30 minute college interview for an entry level job. I was asked simple personality questions such as describing an obstacle I overcame, an experience with a difficult coworker or school group member, and the usual interview stuff. Also asked where I see myself in 2 and 5 years, and what I like to do in my free time (I wasn't prepared for that one at the time, but have been asked several times since then). The person interviewing me was about 23-24 and was incredibly cocky. Half of the interview he criticized my answers and tried to prove to me how much better he was than me. At one point I considered getting up, telling him what I think about him and walking out. Probably should have done it. Yes it's probably an isolated incident with someone who wasn't part of the HR team, just a guy they pulled from a desk to help them interview. However, thats the experience I had. On the other hand, I heard great things about the woman who was in charge of recruitment at PSU (and maybe all of Hill's college recruitment) from people whom she interviewed. It's a good company though - good luck.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied online through the company website and almost immediately received a call from the recruiter. Was impressed over the phone w the prospects of working here - an interview was set up to meet w a few companymen. I really enjoyed sitting w all the interviewers minus one. One of the interviewers came off as condescending. He belittled work experience, and from start to finish he talked about his personal accomplishments at Hill in great detail. He asked one question in the half hour, I couldn't get a word in, and when I did speak it's like he was totally disinterested.

    Recruiter was going to reach out to me w I'm the week w news, but that didn't happen. When I did follow up I was provided w no definitive information. 'It can take a few weeks or four months, I don't know.' Very disappointed to say the least, but I'd be hesitant to work here if I had gotten an offer.
