    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college career fair, and took them months to make decisions, but yet they wouldn't tell you if you were declined - you have to find out yourself. And it took them 5 months to get me my reimbursement to interview back (it was 600+ dollars) after I kept bugging the HR. Don't like this company.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Turner Construction in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was obained via an internal employee recommendation. Met with two HR associates and the direct report in the Marketing dept. Discussed job responsibilities and expectations of the position. They asked me to go through details on a recent project I worked on for my previous employer. I felt the interview was very much two sided as I asked many questions to help me determine if the position would be a good fit for both parties. The conversation was fluid and candid and I felt resulted in a very good interview. I followed up with three separate thank you letters to the individuals I met with. Never heard back from the company and heard through the grapevine the position has been filled.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question is always salary expectation. Having been employed with my previous employer for over 20 years and also in a higher paying industry, my salary was on the higher end for an executive assistant. I answered "while salary is important, it is not the most important thing for me. I am more interested in the total package of a company. I would prefer to fit into your company's pay structure." This allows me the opportunity to not provide an actual $ amount which could help get me to the next round. Unfortunately, sometimes they will follow up with, "what did you make at your last job?" Once I give the number, I'm always told the position doesn't pay anywhere near that amount. If I'm interviewing for a position in a different industry I then counter with, "I realize having worked in the financial industry, the salaries are somewhat higher and all I would ask is that I be paid a marketable salary comparable to a person with my experience within your industry.
      The most unexpected question I was asked was, "what made my writing skills excellent?" That threw me and I'm still not sure if my response was adequate but I responded with, "In these times with communication being conducted mainly via e-mail, I have had to hone my writing skills in order to be effective in my job. The fact that my boss consistently asks me to respond to correspondence on his behalf indicates to me that my writing skills are up to par with his expectations. I personally think they are excellent but realize that is subjective.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    5 minute career fair interview. Called back for a formal interview at the school with two people ( a PM and a HR rep). Called back for a final interview at Turner's HQ. The final interview took about 8 hours. Was a round robin type of interview with a lunch and site visit. My interview was at the end of November. Told i would get a call before the new year. I received a call on December 31st (literally a day before the new year) saying that they were still making their decision and I would hear back within the first quarter of 2014. Never heard back and tried to email with no response. The whole process was a great experience and all, but after gong through all of that I figured a company like Turner could at least let me know their decision. I would have put more effort into contacting Turner (i.e. calling), but I was able to secure a job a few days after I emailed. My advice, keep your options open.
