    APM Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Shawmut Design and Construction (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process started with a 30 minute phone interview. After it was determined that I was a good candidate for the position, I was scheduled for two one on one interviews over a two week time frame. Their HR staff was very helpful and managed the process well. The interview was relaxed, and generated good dialogue. Don't expect to be hammered with questions but rather a conversation on past experiences and what makes you a good fit for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shawmut Design and Construction (New York, NY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Process started with phone screening interview. Passed that and next had to fill out a form and take a PI survey. Days later, got an email to set up the in person interview with 4 people, which was canceled the afternoon of the day before I was supposed to go in. Took a week before interview was rescheduled with 3 people this time, set for the following week, all told 2 weeks from initial interview date. Finish the interview process and the following week emailed by HR the team still hasn’t made a decision. Another week goes passes and another email, this time HR says the team decided the position was no longer needed and would be reopened in the future. Wow a promising situation turned into a disappointing waste of time, a month from process inception.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shawmut Design and Construction (New York, NY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    One at a time there were 4 different interviewers who stepped into a conference room to meet with me. They were seemingly experienced in the interview process and asked some text book questions and others right off the internet.
    They were refined and well spoken gentlemen. They offer a nice company and package.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shawmut Design and Construction.

    Interview

    Several managers came in for 1 to 1 interviews. It felt like they get a group of people and have an interview day where all the managers come in and explain the company. They do not have a particular job in mind when you interview. If they like you - they let you know what positions they have open.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shawmut Design and Construction (Boston, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email shortly after submitting my resume online, requesting a time for a phone interview. A few days later I spoke with a recruiter. I believe the phone call was supposed to last about a half hour, mine lasted closer to an hour. It went well, the call ended with the recruiter saying that I would be getting a call from another recruiter to schedule an in person interview. Within 48 hours I received a call to schedule an in person interview for the following week. I was informed that I would be interviewed by 4 people, individually.
    I met with the team and they all seemed to go well. Everyone was very friendly, asked me a lot of questions and answered all of mine.
