    Task Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online in response to a posting by PB for position in Fresno, CA. I very much wanted to work on the high speed rail project there and I was excited about the opportunity to do so. Unfortunately, PB was not the actual employer; the position was with a much smaller construction company. The location was not Fresno, it was more remote.

    The client seemed to be interviewing for an entirely different position. Seven different people I spoke with during the interview process had seven different perspectives regarding what the role would entail. I withdrew because the situation seemed too unstable to warrant a 2000 mile relocation.

    Interview expenses were covered or were promptly reimbursed.

    It would have been helpful if the original posting indicated the position would actually be with one of PB's "partners" or subcontractors and that the field office location might very well be variable and remote. Communicate with applicants regarding evolving requirements. Otherwise, whether intentional or not, the process feels a lot like "bait and switch".

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff in October 2016.

    Interview

    The phone screening interview was not held by someone from HR but by four civil engineers. They tried to be polite, but the interview was much more technical than behavioral. They only focused on one of the job experiences in my resume, and ask many questions regarding the tasks and results from that job.
