    Easy Interview

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at KPW Structural Engineers (Oakland, CA)


    The three owners interviewed me as a panel. They asked questions regarding my experience, and they were kind and very professional. It was interesting learn about the company history and learn about the AEC industry. I felt a real bond between the staff and the owners. It was reassuring to learn how hands-on the owners are with projects and teams, because I feel a disconnect when companies don't have their owners work with the staff.
