    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at VHB (Tysons, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a colleague and was contacted by a recruiter within days after my resume was submitted. The recruiter was very friendly and worked with me to schedule an interview. My interview was the following week and went without a hitch. I was interviewed by a director, and three senior employees from the Planning department. The interview lasted an hour and they asked basic questions regarding my interest in the firm, my career goals, and my motivations for switching companies. Everyone was very relaxed and approachable and the interview ended on a positive note. I left the interview feeling like I fit in at VHB.

    Learned of an immediate opening from an employee I had met at a networking event. Three in-person interviews with a total of 6 or 7 people before receiving an offer. The entire process took 4 or 5 weeks. Staff were responsive and friendly throughout the entire process. Plenty of time in each interview to ask questions.

    Environmental Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VHB (Providence, RI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They only asked me 3 or 4 questions, mostly about my courses in college and what I learned in school. Then they discussed the job. Lastly, they asked if I had any questions, so I asked a few. They told me it would probably be a couple weeks before I heard back. After two weeks, I emailed one of the interviewers and it was only then that he told me they offered the job to someone else. Not sure they would have reached out to me otherwise to let me know the bad news.
