    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Tetra Tech in May 2017.

    Interview

    First, there was a general interview, covering my background and interest in the company, and abilities, and that sort of thing. Then they had me come back a few days later to talk to the team lead I'd be working with, more to get a sense of general personality compatibility.

    Program Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied for Program Analyst position in the D.C. area. I immediately received email from one of their recruiters. Several of the questions were questions that if a recruiter had read my resume they could answer. Nevertheless, I answered each question fully and replied back to the recruiter. From there, no further email, no contact, no anything. For a position with such specific expertise required (in a very small industry) I believe its improper to establish communications with an applicant and then completely shut them out.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your Salary Requirement (asked right off the bat with no opportunity to discuss the position, clients, company benefits)

      How does your experience support the position (again, asked right off the bat and implies they did not take the time to read the resume)   Answer Question

    Receptionist/Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tetra Tech.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview. Was asked over and over why I was switching fields and why I didn't have direct reception experience. If I was wasting their time so much they should not have called me. They did not bother to send a rejection email. I'm sure they interviewed alot of people but manners are manners.

    Environmental Scientist I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tetra Tech (Kansas City, MO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick process overall. I applied on the website and received a call the same day from the office to set up the interview the following week (applied on a Friday). Was told following the interview that they have to interview at lease three people before making a decision. I followed up about two weeks later and shortly after received a phone call with the offer.

    The interview itself was more conversational in nature as opposed to strict Q and A. Asked a lot about my resume and specific areas of expertise outlined. Also spent time discussing career goals.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you felt like you were unprepared for a task and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer was inline with my expectations so there wasn't much negotiation.
