    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Balfour Beatty Construction in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume and if they were interested, they gave me a call and set up a time for an interview that was most convenient for the both of us. Then I went to their facility, they interviewed me (2people - group interview) and then they got back to me in about a week. It was a fairly simple process.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stillwater, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stillwater, OK
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Balfour Beatty Construction in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    When I first interviewed with Balfour it was for an intern position. The two interviewers were very relaxed and made the interview seem more like we were just having a conversation. They asked the typical questions like, why I wanted to be in construction. After the interview they gave me some free stuff like most companies do that are hiring interns. It took close to a month before I heard back from there HR department. That what the only thing throughout the whole process that was a little disappointing. I have heard that is the average wait time but I was anxious to hear back since I assumed my interview went so well. I did not have an interview for my full time employment they just offered me after my internship.

    There wasn't much of one because they beat all of my other offers. I still told them that I wanted more time to think because of other offers and they accepted that willingly.
