    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Granite Construction (West Haven, UT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They were very flexible with finding a good time for the interview. I was brought in and interviewed by a project executive and a project manager. The interview was very relaxed. Like you would expect I was asked about past employment, experience that would benefit their company, and questions about what my goals are pertaining to their company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Granite Construction (North Sacramento, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Panel of management sat down and knocked out the interview process in one swing. I was applying for Qc technician. There were five managers, two of which I would be working for. It took a while for me to get an interview but I kept bugging the QC manager until he got me an interview with the QC regional manager. It's a union shop so there were hoops to jump through with the union because so many were out of work. Good experience.
