    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TranSystems.

    Interview

    I first spoke with one of their engineering staff at my campus civil engineering career fair. About a month after that I was contacted by a recruiter to schedule an office interview. During the office interview I first spoke with two senior staff members at once and then following that I spoke with a group of three senior staff members at once. The interview was very comfortable and casual. They started by asking me generic questions about my resume and expanded with follow up questions after my responses. I was then given an offer two weeks after the office interview.

    Entry Level Structural Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TranSystems (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I got the interview through networking at my previous job. Got a call for an interview from an acquaintance, and had the interview later that week. Very laid back, talked a lot about my previous work experience and school work, as well as just about me in general. Very friendly. After the interview, however, it did take about two months to hear back from them with a job offer. I called a few times to check the status and did not hear back until they offered me the job, which was fine! The offer was a little lower than what I expected, but they pay for transportation and good benefits, so it all works out.
