    Staff Geologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brown and Caldwell (Atlanta, GA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Quick yet thorough. I applied online and received an email from a recruiter approximately two weeks later. There were three interviews: a phone interview with the recruiter, another phone interview with the principal geologist, and a final in-person interview with the project managers and engineers. The process was fairly rapid. The staff were very kind and relaxed, which made the interview less stressful.
