    Proposal Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at STV.

    Interview

    Don't bother interviewing - arrogant and dishonest sums it up. After several interviews I declined to proceed. I wasn't interested in anything they had to offer after being told I "need" to apply for a lower role than the one I was contacted by HR for to interview for.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at STV (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I knew someone so I emailed them and they helped me with the processes. Not a strict internship program so the process was not that rigorous, they just want to see if you could fit in with the team. People were friendly and helpful and want to see if you have an interest in what you are interning for. Some people I talked to did not get the exact group that they wanted but it worked out.

    Marketing Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at STV (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process started out fine. Interviewed with the recruiter, then met with the Managing Editor and another Marketing Editor who gave a very professional interview that made me very interested in working for the company - they were fantastic. Then met with the National Director who asked very odd questions that did not pertain to anything. Took about 3-4 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected questions included asking me to choose 3 words to describe myself and to rate my abilities on a scale of 1-10 (cause people say anything less than 10?). Wouldn't have been shocked if I was asked to pick which color best represents me.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was presented with an offer that the National Director had cut by almost $10,000 below the number I had already agreed to during the original negotiation. I have since learned that agreeing to a number and then low-balling at the end happens a lot there.

    Highway Design Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at STV in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back.

    1. Introduced to a manager through a student organization.
    2. Scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager.
        -Phone interview was personality based. He was just looking to learn a little bit about me and confirm that I was interested in the position. At the end of the phone interview he asked when I could complete an in office interview.
    3. The in office interview was very comfortable. I first met with the hiring manager, who then introduced me to several project engineers. They were all very friendly and made time to speak to me about their experience with STV.
    4. I accepted the position shortly after the in office interview.

    Note: Interviews may vary from office to office.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Tell me about your college experience?
      2. Why are you interested in highway design?
      3. What are your career goals?
      4. Do you plan to take the FE?
      5. Can you see yourself living in this area?   Answer Question

    The hiring and interview process was great. I found the STV management team and HR team to be responsive, transparent, and positive. I had a phone interview and an in-person interview. The team was flexible and knowledgeable.
