    Mechanical Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WSP (San Francisco, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed first at my college campus, and then had a follow up interview in San Fransisco. Both interviews had no technical questions and they just asked me to talk about what was on my resume. They were more conversations than interviews.

    After I received an offer they processes was pretty terrible. My offer was actually rescinded and then they re-offered me the job a week later. All in all the process after receiving the offer was very off putting and I decided to continue with another opportunity.

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WSP (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied Online. Got a email within the week and scheduled initial phone interview. Initial Phone interview mainly asked basic questions, such as "tell me about yourself", "why are you interested in this position", and "tell me about some of your projects". It was fairly simple, no technical question. Within the next week, got an email for a visit to office. Office visit was mainly to introduce me to the staff and ask any other questions if I have for them. There were no technical questions and I got an offer within two weeks.

    Electrical Engineering Coop Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at WSP (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through the university's career website. Got an email in 2 days saying they wanted to meet. On the actual interview they (3 interviewers) didn't ask much, mainly explaining their projects and the work cultures. Everyone there is so friendly and the workplace is really nice. One person gave a tour of the office at the end. Really great experience. Got the offer the next day but due to credit status at school couldn't accept the offer for Coop.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining
