    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy. Started with an email to a colleague I've known for years. Emailing back and forth for a few weeks and then talking on the phone a few times over another few weeks before setting up a formal interview with my district manager and an area manger. We didn't speak of my technical abilities, we all knew each other. Their main concern was my planned longevity, as I had worked here before several years prior. It took about another 2 weeks to get started. Overall, probably just over a month, and that is a fast process for them.

    Interview Questions
    • How long did I plan to stay. I had worked here several years prior and quit after 2 years. I expected the question, but it was not an easy answer to tie down   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They took what I was asking and added $100/week and a $500 sign on bonus.

    I applied online – interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview Details

    It was quite nice when the hr director introduced what kiewit is and what does this position do. The interview was conducted by environmental department director, and the questions is pretty easy, like why do you think you are good for this job, and do you think you are a team player or independent worker.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Kiewit came to my college recruiting and giving classes on what direction Kiewit was heading. After the classes they invited a group of interested people out to lunch to talk more about the company. I attended the lunch and got an email a couple weeks later asking if I would like to fly out to Denver for an interview. I accepted and sat in a hotel for many hours and was interviewed by 3 people. The interview was very formal I wore a suit etc. The guys were pretty nice and down to earth.

    Negotiation Details
    Very easy negotiation phase I talked with the HR lady and everything was handled. One difficult aspect was that they did not know where I would be moving to until 1 week before I started, which made moving stressful.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Talked on the phone with an HR rep for about 30-45 minutes. I had previous experience in various manual labor positions with another construction company which made it easy to talk about understanding the work conditions and how project sites work. I also had interned the previous summer with a VC so I could talk about the financial side of business. After talking they said they didn't need an in person interview and offered me a spot.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is very immature, people are continually changing, and not well suited to attract talent. The management more than makes up for HR's shortcomings and inexperience though. Background checks are overly thorough digging up the smallest infraction from 7 years ago and dragging it out to be discussed unnecessarily.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no especially off the wall questions, it was very straight forward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary control is mostly controlled by the hiring manager (and their director)

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

    Interview Details

    on campus interview, relaxed beginning, quickly became serious with in-depth questions on technical knowledge. Then moved on to past experience and job history. asked about willingness to relocate and what long term career aspirations would be. All questions seemed fair. Would try to have more experience prior to interviewing if possible or become certified as an industry professional if possible.
