    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RS&H (Austin, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online after speaking to a representative at UT Austin's Spring Engineering Expo; and was contacted by the hiring manager to set up a screening interview. After the screening interview I was contacted by the HR department to schedule an onsite interview. At the onsite interview I went through 4 different sets of interviews, 2 of which were 1-1 and the other 2 were 2-1. The engineers were a mix of those in transportation and other fields that I would be interacting with on a daily basis in the office.

    Director-Human Resource Programs Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at RS&H (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2009.

    Interview

    First contact was by phone. I was suggested to them by a third-party as a potential candidate. I was not looking for another job at the time. I was asked about my experience and what I was responsible for as VPHR for my current company. The interviewer detailed the director position and what they were looking for in a candidate. I was told about the interview process and was given a general range of compensation along with a detail of other benefits. I met with the CFO who told me the position would report to him. I asked why he thought I would be a good candidate since RSH sought me out. I was told the company had never had a female executive in its (then) 62 year history. I offered my reservations about being the first, and asked to meet with the current HR staff as well as other directors. Those interviews were set up for me. After I met with everyone, I met again with the CFO and told him I didn't think I was the right for the position based on many of the attitudes and opinions presented to me by who would be my peers. I was again contacted by RSH and offered an employment contract that could turn into a regular employee position at the conclusion. I accepted, and then met with a psychologist who gave me a personality and management style test. We negotiated the salary and I signed the contract.

    Bar none, working at Reynolds, Smith and Hills, Inc., was the worst experience of my life. The culture is not female-friendly, not family-friendly (I don't have a family), and not minority-friendly (I am not a minority). Management styles are outdated, not progressive, not open to improvement. If you enjoy being micromanaged, this is the place for you. If you enjoy being screamed at, this is the place for you. On my first recruiting outing, I fought against the common name for RS&H - run, scream, and hide. The moniker fits.

    Interview Questions

    • I did much of the interviewing, because I was solicited to interview with the company, not the other way around.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate an employment contract rather than hiring on as a regular employee. Be well prepared with numbers before you enter negotiation at RSH. If you don't show printouts of what you've found, you won't get what you want.
