    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AECOM.

    Interview Details

    Called by a recruiter who found my resume online and set up an in-person interview. Had the in-person a few days later with my future manager. The interview was over an hour. I was provided with a detailed description of the position and career path available. Questions covered skills, background, interests, and knowledge base. Although it was one of the longest interviews I've ever had, it was very comfortable. The hardest part was waiting for the offer - although I received update calls, the offer didn't come for about two weeks.

    I was called by a hiring agency that AECOM required an Administrative Assistant so I was one of the fortunate candidates to be called by Human Resources and do a one-on-one interview with the Human Resource Manager then followed by the CEO of the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were easy to answer but I felt a bit tensed as the previous CEO of Maunsell currently known as AECOM looked like a terror but as the interviewed continued I felt comfortable talking and impressing him with my skills.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    When working in the Middle East you have to be clear with the packages offered in the contract as most employment contracts does not state clearly what is covered such as the annual ticket and if overtime is paid.

    The interview process was not intimidating as I expected it to be, esp. for an entry-level position. If you have international experience, budget experience, and management experience you are golden. If you have a MA that's extra points.
