    Graphic Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grimshaw-Architects (New York, NY (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First off, when I applied they responded within 48 hours. Initially I assumed that was a great sign. I entered the building with confidence as I was interviewed by two people simultaneously (one from HR). After 40minutes of discussion, I was told to send a follow-up email with information and they would contact me if I matched the requirements within two weeks. Well I did just that, however, its been over a month and no response. Gee, thanks. I would've even appreciated a rejection, however, they lack human morale.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grimshaw-Architects (New York, NY (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview followed by an in-person interview with two Associate Principals. They both asked different questions and seemed at odds with each other, with lots of interruptions and funny looks. We talked over my portfolio and the work I specialize in.

    Experienced Part 2 Architect Interview

    Interview

    Worked hard to send an application in but received a reply just 4 hours later saying they would 'not be moving forward.'
    This was sent at 10PM on a Friday night just after I sent the application so clearly they have some sort of automated filter which makes no sense.

    Company Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Grimshaw-Architects (London, England).

    Interview

    The process to get me in for an interview was quick (3 working days from sending my CV to being interviewed). Interview conducted by the CFO and Financial Controller in the London office, which was nice looking.

    Interview was focused on my work experience and mostly competency based questions. After which I was given an excel based aptitude test; and this is where I taught this was a joke, as it was super easy.

    In the end, the feedback was that they had no doubt about my competency and ability to do the job but concerned about my history of not staying long enough in previous jobs (minimum one year 2 months). Which makes me question why waste everyone's time when my CV clearly provided this information in the first place?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Grimshaw-Architects in December 2018.

    Interview

    Went for an Interview. Still waiting for response after couple months. HR are slow at responding, and keeping you up to date. Would be better for them to let you know when to expect a response, so you don't have to keep waiting and guessing.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview was pretty easy, and casual. And generally positive. Provided an overview of the company projects and what they are looking for, and specifically asking questions on what your aspirations and career goals are, and what you can contribute to the team.   Answer Question
