    Assistant Landscape Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of New York (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They informed me that I was selected for an interview. The interview was scheduled and I attended. It was a group interview and it felt more like a conversation. Really appreciated the opportunity to discuss my work experience. Heard back from them about two weeks later and was presented a conditional offer. I accepted but still waiting for final approval and signatures for this position to become official.
