    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westwood, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mott MacDonald (Westwood, MA (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and the role shortly closed after. Months later I got an email saying the role is open again and they would like to interview me. The recruiter was 25 minutes late to the call that we set up. After my phone interview with the hiring manager and given the reviews on this company are pretty rough, I decided that the job isn't for me. The recruiter asked me for my thoughts after my phone interview, so I told him that after hearing more, the job isn't for me. I never got a response. My experience reflects that this might be a company too big to be bothered with caring about these matters, its employees etc..

    Environmental Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mott MacDonald (Virginia Beach, VA (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I went to an in person interview in the Virginia Beach office. The person who would be training his replacement (the person hired) was very pleasant and professional as he explained the job. He was joined by the Vice President on Skype after a half hour. The interview lasted one hour. Many questions were the same ones phrased in a different way. It was one of the worst interviews I have had to sit through in my life because the Vice President implied I was somehow immature because I had changed jobs twice in the past 5 years. The other interviewer came to my defense and said he had had to do the same thing himself in the past.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mott MacDonald.

    Interview

    Basic engineering interview after meeting a representative at a career fair in college. Questions were basic and checked to see if I was a student who knew the fundamentals of engineering. I made sure to use some of the background research of the company to contribute to my replies about what I would like to develop as an intern.
