    Interview

    I filled out an application from LinkedIn and they sent me a questionnaire in my email. Then, they scheduled an interview about a month later. The interview was supposed to start at 9:00 am. At 9:10, they emailed and asked if the interview could start at 10:00 am.

    I applied online. I interviewed at AECOM.

    Interview

    The interview was a phone interview with the team leads. They asked me to submit a work sampling/portfolio highlighting my design and mapping skills. It was a very conversational interview and they genuinely were interested in my past experiences and career goals even though the position technically really just needed basic technical skills in GIS, InDesign, Illustrator, AutoCad.

    Interview

    Interviewer Mr. Youngerman was a little strange. Sometimes made me feel uncomfortable. Saying I could take a "pee break" between the online zoom interview. Other than him everyone else that interviewed were rather nice and I felt the interview was solid. Always asked me if I was okay with heights, like all the time haha. Like they work on smoke stacks all day. They will make you travel a lot too, so hopefully you are single. Like they literally ask you if you are scared of heights all the time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at AECOM (Dallas, TX (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a Senior Level Engineer who did not seem to care. Told me ‘we don’t know how to train during a pandemic so I don’t even know if we will hire’. Only asked me 3 surface level questions and then said he was done after 10 minutes. I was told I would hear back with a yes or no promptly and have still not heard 7 weeks later.

    Interview

    I was originally called and asked to go to lunch with two of the project managers. Shortly after, I was invited to the office for a formal interview. The interview lasted a full day. I met with several project managers and went to lunch with two mid level employees. The interview included giving a 20 minute presentation and getting a tour of the labs.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy. A little nerve wracking to try to navigate on a federal installation. Once I got to the interview I spoke with a lead team member, Project Manager, and Deputy Project Manager. They all seemed nice and the work seemed interesting. Afterwards I got a tour of the facility. All in all it was a good experience.
