    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WSP (Salt Lake City, UT (US)) in November 2017.

    Pre-interview with the section manager, pretty informal, and also very professional. Mainly the interview is about the potential job openings, so they just want to have some basic understanding of the candidates.

    Assistant Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at WSP in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from the recruiter asking for a date to fix a conference phone interview with the assistant vice president and the senior vice president of the traction department.
    It was a phone interview, but the fact that it was with the head of department was nerve wrecking. They talked about the company for 10 mins and talked about the position and job. In my opinion it went very well, but they barely asked me anything. They asked me to talk about my projects at school since those were more relevant to the job requirements. I was hoping they asked me more questions about my work experience or basic interview questions.
    The interviewer told me that someone will get back to me by the end of the week definitely after they discussed it over and from the tone they seemed very positive. But no one contacted me and I ended up emailing after two weeks for updates and the recruiter emailed me back saying they are moving forward with other applicants.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Gables, FL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at WSP (Coral Gables, FL (US)).

    Interview

    Very anti-climatic. I stepped in and the Senior Vice President read my resume out swiftly, then asked if I had any questions. The interview lasted 4-5 mins at most. The interviewer seemed extremely checked out and not interested, nor did they discuss the position at all. It felt like they had already selected someone else and were only going through the motions with me just "because." It was a waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were asked aside from "do you have any questions?"   Answer Question
