Interview Details – While some people had on campus interviews after the career fair they skipped that step with me. They flew me to DC and put me up for the night. I met with HR to do and application in the morning, they then had me go to a job site to interview face to face with several project managers, I met with 2 that day but I know other people who met with 3 or 4 and they were supposed to have more people for me to meet with. After I went back to the office and meet with an HR person for a behavioral interview and another HR person to discuss their benefits package. Overall the process was a little disorganized and rushed.

Interview Details –
There was a one on one interview at my university with an HR representative of the company after I met them at a career fair.
After that interview they invited me to the Bethesda Office for a formal interview. There I interviewed with three different people all one on one. The questions asked related to my interests in the construction industry and they asked basic question about why I think I would fit in with their company.

Interview Details –
Submitted a resume online and a few weeks later was called about flying to DC to interview at HQ. Flew in and out in the same day (very long day). Interviewed with three executives in the division hiring for about a half hour each and finished with a half hour with the VP of HR.
Questions about previous experience and activities.
Was offered a position verbally day of the interview and the next day the details of salary and benefits was sent to me.
Interview Question – Why should we hire you without construction experience? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable. DC is very expensive so try to get as much as you can but keep in mind lots of other people probably will take what you were offered so it probably won't happen.

Interview Details – An HR representative came to campus and interview many candidates in a 1 on 1 format. After that it took about a month to hear back from HR if I was invited to a second round interview. I then got the good news of being invited to DC for a 2nd rounder and scheduled it for 3 weeks later. They were very flexible in terms of the travel plans. I am from the region and was able to schedule my interview right before thanksgiving and schedule my return flight for after thanksgiving. This afforded me the opportunity to come home for the holidays. I then found out a week and a half later about my offer and expressed gratitude. I waited a week to discuss specifics of the offer and ran the numbers. I then negotiated a higher singing bonus but the salary did not move.
Reason for Declining – I had a better offer from a different company in terms of job description, compensation, bonus opportunities, stock purchasing options, 401k matching contributions, and much better health benefits.

Interview Details –
After submitting my resume I was contacted by the HR department who set up a day of interviewing. They put me up in a hotel across the street which was nice considering I was only coming from 2.5 hours away. In the morning there was a brief overview at headquarters and then I was taken to a job site for the day by metro.
I was shown around the job site(seriously, a suit isn't necessary and you'll be better off without nice shoes) by a current office engineer for the remainder of the morning which was interesting. I ate lunch with a few of the younger people on site and after lunch I interviewed with the project manager on site.
The people were very nice, but it seemed like a very mediocre kind of place.
