I was told that Tetra Tech would be working with the city I live in, and work sometimes could be held at the city offices. I went to work the next day and proceeded to learn the system concerning the disaster at the time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Tetra Tech in July 2010.

    Interview

    It took four interviews to get hired for a job that was created. The whole process took, for me, took over over 5-6 months. The vice President was let go 4 months later and I was transferred to another supervisor, a Director who didn't know what to do with me, and offered little support.

    Senior Proposal Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rosslyn, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tetra Tech (Rosslyn, VA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interviewer kept me waiting for several minutes to start. I interviewed with only one person, a VP who supposedly worked her way up in the firm over the years. I was not impressed. The hiring manager did not communicate well; she asked me several questions twice because she was not getting the answers she wanted. Our conversation was awkward. I was also disappointed that I did not get to discuss the role, position, or company with other employees. I did not get a good feel for company culture, team work, and camaraderie. The interviewer also had limited time to meet with me--only an hour, so I felt rushed, and definitely not relaxed. I typically like to provide context and/or details with my answers, and I was cut off several times. I definitely don't think I had ideal personality and work style compatibility with the hiring manager. In summary, my interview was easy, albeit awkward.

    Senior .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tetra Tech (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    Stay away from this company. They hire people from one nationality and if you are not one of them, you will not be comfortable.
    I had to wait 50 minutes foe the project manager who interviewed me because he was riding the metro coming back from a client's location! Tetra Tech office space is nice but the programmers are not on the same floor, AMTI office space is old, rusty, dark and unorganized cubical offices.
    I nailed all their questions, the project manager asked a question and he requested his employees to answer his question but they didn't know the correct answer. of course I answered correctly and the employees didn't feel comfortable. He brought them in to interview me technically and when they found that I am much better than them, they started asking some tricky questions which was not a problem at all.
    After all, I was told that I will get the job and that the project manager is going to send me an email soon to prepare for the background check. I didn't hear back from him for 2 months and then he sent an email apologizing and he said that he is willing to explain what happened. I replied to his email but he didn't get back to me at all.
