    Connected with a senior staff member through professional connections. Received a phone call from this staff member. It was not originally an interview, but I treated it as one. The phone call ended up going really well.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tetra Tech.

    Interview

    I had a previous contact in the company who ran the hiring process. I went through only one day of interviews, meeting with 7-8 people for 30 min each.

    My contact (hiring manager?) was quite busy after the interview so it took 2 weeks to get an email with the informal offer. Then another 2 weeks to get the formal offer letter. I started 2 weeks after that.

    They did require an extensive physical (blood work, EKG, etc) even though it's a desk job. The doctor thought that since there are field/construction/hazmat workers, they need to require it for everyone, but the results wouldn't affect my hiring.

    Environmental Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tetra Tech in November 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call from a PM a week later asking about my experience. Came in a week later for in-person interview with said PM and three other team members. Went very well. Had another phone interview a few days later and was told I will hear back about next steps in a few days. I never did; they completely ghosted me. I reached out twice (to PM and HR) in the following two weeks asking if I was still under consideration and received no reply. I only learned that I wasn't chosen by checking my application status on the website. Very unprofessional. I also got a very negative vibe from the interview - they implied I would be working 12+ hour days and pay would not be commensurate. Emphasized their people spend weeks away from home and openly hate it. Bad impression.
