Easy, very straight forward process. Ended up meeting with head of Estimating and HR Manager. Was asked a few simple questions by the HR Manager, then a few follow up from the Head of Estimating . Interview didn't last longer than an hour . There was casual conversation at the end of the interview, whereby I had the opportunity to hand over printed references which were well received.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at PCL Construction.

    Interview Details

    Promised the world materialized to just average. Told shares would double your salary in 7 years in reality more like 20+. Gave really poor reviews of current employees once I started I found the problem was not the employees but the management

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PCL Construction in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews, the first with HR, the second with HR and Ops Manager. Both were comfortable, straight forward and lasted 1-1.5 hours. HR was easy and very cordial. Second interview with panel was more difficult and pointed. i.e. eelved deeper into situational experience and personal appraoches to hypothetical situations.
