    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.

    Entry Level Traffic Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Centennial, CO (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AECOM (Centennial, CO (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Very easy, fast interview. I had a phone interview with 4-5 people, then they flew me out for an in person interview and told me they wanted to hire me right then. The hiring manager was very nice and upfront about liking me and wanting to get me a competitive offer. However, the HR representative was a bit rude and not helpful. I mentioned to them several times I would be out of the country on vacation soon and not able to respond. They ignored my emails and proceeded to send a time sensitive email while I was on vacation and was very rude when I was not able to respond.

    Reasons for Declining

    They are moving into a new office space that has a smaller capacity than the number of employees that they have, and it is an open office layout with no cubicle walls.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AECOM (Dahlgren, VA (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    It was suppose to be a Webex interview, but it would not connect. Spent 15 minutes emailing and calling the recruiter with no response. Eventually talked to a manager over the phone for a short interview. It was quite the stressful and negative experience. Would have been nice for a fair shot at the interview.
