    HR Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services (Parsippany, NJ (US)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    This position has been open for 1.5 years...big red flag. The offer I received was changed so dramatically in scope, nature, and compensation from what was discussed and affirmed numerous times throughout the interview process. It was presented in an unprofessional manner - with no acknowledgement or explanation of the drastic changes. It's no wonder they can't fill this role. Don't be fooled by the veneer of professionalism they attempt to project - I heard from two separate sources that there are some serious satisfaction and retention problems within their HR department. I dodged a bullet and figured I'd pay it forward!

    29 Dec 2020 – Corporate Talent Acquisition Manager

    Thank you for your feedback. We take Langan’s candidate experience very seriously, and are disappointed to know that your personal impression was not a reflection of the red carpet candidate experience we strive for in every step of the interview process.

As is true with any position that Langan posts, this role is critical to the success of our organization, and we are actively doing due diligence to identify the right candidate for this career opportunity. As a firm and especially as a Human Resources team, we pride ourselves on integrity, transparency, and professionalism. We recognize that the interview process is bilateral, and that sharing a comprehensive understanding of the opportunity throughout the interview process is vital.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services.

    Interview

    Brief interview. Met with five managers who asked basic questions about the career and research in school.
    They were not interested in testing technical background. It looks like experience and certifications are more important.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services.

    Interview

    Group interview with 3 people. Slightly intimidating but that is just the group interview atmosphere. Definately follow up afterwards. My interview didn't go so well but I sent a follow up email and I think that is why I got the offer. I declined because the work I would be doing didn't align with what I was interested in.

    Senior Environmental Compliance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Doylestown, PA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services (Doylestown, PA (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Protracted, stressful, frustrating, and fruitless. After approximately two and half months, Langan basically went silent. They did not communicate any any decision much less a basis for terminating the dialogue.

    Interview Questions

    • For the position, as advertised, I possessed all of the necessary business, technical, and managerial skills. I had an initial screening interview by phone which led me to a video interview with the hiring manager. This interview led to two or three follow-on video interviews over the course of a bout three weeks. In the course of this marathon, it finally came out that all of the advertised qualifications were a distant second to "Can you make an impact"? That is - how much business can you bring with you.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services.

    Interview

    The first two interviews went very smoothly and the HR responded very quickly. Then starting with the onsite interview. The VP and PMs are really kind. But there's a quiz at the end of the interview. The first is hard, requiring some experience, the rest two are really easy, basic chemistry.
