    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I was a little taken aback with the lack of politeness in my email correspondence with the hiring manager. Every email was curt, abrasive and as he was doing ME a favor by speaking to me. I don't really think reaching out to a potential candidate this way reflects well on your company. Extremely pleased to not be going forward and I hope whomever they 'convince' to hire will perhaps have some decency to bring to this organization.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thornton Tomasetti (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Heard back in 2 weeks that I was accepted for an interview on site. Interview was relaxed, seemed like they didn't have much prepared (maybe because I was interviewed by a bunch of architects instead of engineers). I then got shown around the office and spoke to some staff engineers about their work. The interview itself was about 45min, but talking to the staff engineers took about 1.5 hours. In the end, the interviewer told me that they would contact me about a decision in at most 4 weeks, and to contact him if I needed a response quickly due to other offers, OK I said. Then 1 month passed...I contacted them, NO RESPONSE. 2 months passed..I contacted them often, but NO RESPONSE. Finally 4 months passed and they finally respond with "no offer". TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Completely undermined my view of TT!
