    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sargent & Lundy (Walnut Creek, CA).

    Interview

    A typical hiring process. Wonderful people and I was very much glad to have met with the recruiters. H.R. worked very well with you to ensure the process went smoothly and that you did not miss any steps.

    I was not offered a position however, I would very much like to apply for this company if a position opens up again.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sargent & Lundy (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Not an intimidating interview. They seemed more intent on selling S&L than grilling me, which was nice. If you make it to the interview stage, you have a very good shot at an offer, as they seem to do most of their vetting before it gets to that stage.

    Senior Professional I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Sargent & Lundy (Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    This position was for a senior level corporate support function and many of the interviewers were members of leadership. I was not actively searching for a new job but was approached by a company recruiter. After an initial phone screening, I was brought in for 2 rounds of in-person interviews. The first consisted of a full day (9-5 incl lunch) of interviews with 4 people. The interviews were supposed to end much earlier, but the conversations were so rich and engrossing that we kept losing track of time. I was surprised at the level of undivided attention each person gave me. The next round of interviews consisted of 3 meetings with people I had met with the previous time and 2 meetings with new people. It lasted from 8am-1pm. Again, they were more than liberal with their time -- never cutting me off or ending conversations short to run to the next meeting. The people were incredibly warm and welcoming and they made me feel like a highly valued candidate.

    I've interviewed with Deloitte, GE, AON, JP Morgan Chase, Capital One... I could go on, and I can honestly say this was hands down the best interview experience I've ever had. The level of engagement and authenticity from every person involved was just astounding. I was particularly impressed with how honest they were about the challenges of the role.

    Afterwards, when some colleagues asked how the interview went, my response was, "Amazing! We should all go work for Sargent & Lundy!" And I really meant it.
