Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO


HKS invests in its employees , they will cover your AIA membership fee as well as NOMA and offer an extremely broad range of health benefits. The CEO is transparent with staff regarding office wide


I don't have much to add to the cons other then there could be more cross pollination/collaboration between studios.

    Average Interview

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at HKS (Atlanta, GA) in Jan 2020


    Pretty standard. They invited me into the office and asked me to present my portfolio right away. I met with 3 people total. They gave me an office tour and asked if I was applying with any other company in the area, too.

    Why are you applying for a position at our firm?
