    Project Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Messer Construction (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a brief 20 minute phone conversation to see if my work experience matched the positions needs. After that, HR gives a recommendation to the actual person that will conduct the interviews.
    The HR lady I spoke with was very nice and I felt my past experiences fell in line with the needs of this position. At the end of our conversation, She told me someone would be in touch to schedule an interview and if I had any questions to email her. Later that day, I did have a few questions, so I did as asked and emailed her. I waited over a week and had not heard back so I tried emailing again. Nothing!
    I find it rude and unprofessional to not respond to an email. If I'm not a candidate for a position tell me while I'm on the phone with you or email me back telling me I'm not. To leave people wondering if they will get a call back is rude. I was already a little leery about working for them since they are a smaller contractor with limited vertical movement. Even if I do get a call back at this point, I would probably decline.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Messer Construction in October 2010.

    Interview

    After attending my University career fair and talking to a Messer Construction recruiter presumably one of the Project Managers I received a call to come in for an Interview the following week to meet with the presiding Director of Field Operations. The interview itself was very typical was not very hard and the questions were basic behavioral in nature hardly nothing technical he told me he just wanted to see if I would be a good fit in their corporate cultural. My advice for the initial interview would be not stress too much questions were all behavioral and management style in nature so be prepared for that. The only awkward moment of the interview occurred when I t arrived 15 minutes early and I was shown to a huge conference and told to set any where I wanted I contemplated siting at the head of the table but thought that he might not have liked that. I was left in that conference room by myself for at-least 10 minutes maybe even the whole fifteen quite and isolated minutes before he arrived to discuss my skills interest.
