    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with two senior Project Managers and then a hiring manager from human resources. Met with all three separately, with human resources at the end. The project manager's were easy to talk to if you have a general understanding of construction industry. The Human resources manager asks typical interview questions about yourself and your strengths/weaknesses.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume in person via my universities career fair. Was contacted via email about 2 weeks later for an interview. First interview was with two younger employees and was very structured. They asked questions out of a packet and wrote down my responses. I was emailed a few days later for a final interview. This interview was with higher ranking, older, employees and was much less structured. It was more of a conversation where relevant questions were asked as the conversation carried on Naturally. He first interview was more based on situations you have previously encountered specifically. The second was more personality and work ethic based.

    Interview Questions
    • First Interview: Name a time where you began a task with good intentions, and the situation went horribly wrong. What were the results? How did you handle it?

      Second Interview: In ten years from now what do you think you will attribute your success to, such as particular traits or morals.

    Co-Op Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First contact was at a resume review day put on by my university, where a PE critiqued my resume; very professional and very helpful. I then was able to speak with representatives at the career fair, where I left a resume, but I did not think that the rep and I "hit it off" very well, so I was surprised when I got a call for an interview. I had one interview, with two PMs, at the career development center at my university. I received an email the following Monday offering me a co-op position. The whole process, from initial contact to offer, took about 4 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with an on campus interview. Some what laid back with a few simple questions about my resume. Got invited to second round interview about a week later. Second round consisted of a dinner with Turner employees and about 10 other candidates. The next morning we all interviewed with about 6 people in the office. The office interviews are very laid back. Their main goal is to see if you are personable and that you would get along with everyone else at the company. Express your interest and be personable and you will do fine. Received an offer about a week later.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was invited for a second round interview for the Oakland office. The process was simple, two 1 on 1 interviews for 30 minutes each. I see a pattern on what kind of people would like to ask different types of questions through personal experience. From what I can comprehend the people with 20+ years of experience would shy away from behavioral questions to get personal with you. That includes an in depth analysis of your resume, as well as personal questions. On the other hand, people with less years of experience tend to briefly go over your resume, then jump right into the behavior questions, so prepare them ahead of time. Overall if you have a great resume and prepared for the behavioral questions the interview is very easy. I was given an offer on the same day of the interview.
