    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation in September 2017.

    Interview

    Called me 2 days after applying for the position. Seemed very eager to get the ball rolling and scheduled a technical interview for 2 days after initial phone call. Everyone who I talked to seemed nice and eager to answer whatever questions I had. After a week I get a no-reply email that the position had been canceled. This was more frustrating than a flat out rejection, as it meant I had wasted time applying for a position thats existence was uncertain at best.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation (Colorado Springs, CO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by an employee on the HR team. She went over my background and explained the position in minimal detail. She then scheduled and interview with one of the engineers on the team to which I was applying. This took place roughly a week later. I was asked technical questions, but nothing overly complex. He was just trying to gauge my knowledge. I received a follow-up email 3 days later saying that they were looking for a more experienced candidate relative to the skills needed for the position. Overall, the interview process was well done and every conversation that I had was handled professionally and politely.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation in June 2017.

    Interview

    Laughable.

    It consisted of a conversation at lunch with the office manager, then a recruiter called me and got my info, then I filled out an application, then the guy who interviewed me told me he had no power to make a say in anything and said his regional manager in another state would make the decision. Then the recruiter called me and said my application was submitted with a strong recommendation for hire and asked that I would apply for a second position at Parsons in a different state. Things sound good, right? Normal, right? Yeah....

    Then the office manager told me it wasn't going to work out because some unnamed person in the regional office said he knew me and said some negative things about me. Apparently Parsons doesn't know the internet exists because after I beat myself up I took 15 minutes on Linkedin to look up the personnel in that office and saw that in 15 pages of profiles there is nobody in that office who knows me. So, after being lied to and tricked into beating up on myself over said lies, I told them to withdraw my application and I wasn't interested.

    Of course, the next day, instead of letting it go or talking to me about it, they put it on the recruiter to call me on the phone and tell me they weren't going to accept my application for employment.

    In the end, the big excuse I got was Parsons is "risk-averse". My advice to anyone considering this company is do the same and avoid the risk of working in a place where leadership is this weak.

    • I don't even remember what we talked to at lunch. Just run of the mill shoot the bull about the biz type stuff. It took well over two months to get to this point as is even though the office manager said they needed people badly. Their office must be a mess.   Answer Question
