    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. First i had a phone interview with HR then an in person with HR. HR asked a very standard slew of interview questions (what are your relevant experiences why this role what salary are you looking for etc). A week later i met with management on a project site. Again they asked me what experience i had and wanted to get a sense of whether you will be a team player and are a leader.

    Technical Support Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    The interview process was a "typical" tell me about yourself process. They asked questions about certain technology that they use on a daily basis, to ensure that I am able to function with it. The questions threw me off a little when they asked about what books I have read in the last year and why I read them. Very good and very different process to everything. I believe the reason that it was asked it to make sure that my personality will click with the teams. Overall on a scale of 1-10 for the interview I would put it at a 6.8 /7.

    Interview Questions

    • As I stated above, I would say that the unexpected question would have been the "What Book have you read in the last year and why". Very different.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was none. Their pay is set.

    Assistant Field Engineer Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    I contacted them through a University career fair. I spoke with a rep there for a good bit and talked about a various number of things, not really construction in particular. They ended up contacting me before I had a chance to follow up with them about a week later. They scheduled a phone interview, then I waited about a month due to other college recruiting that they were doing. I was then contacted and schedule for an interview in their local office with the HR Director and VP. The interviews were very relaxed, laid back, informative, and really had the feel of a smaller company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    Everyone was very friendly. I heard about the interview through my college and was excited to meet the people at Skanska. The interview was slightly intimidating, due to the fact that it was me across the table from four of the upper-management team. They were very interested in what I was doing in school, and how I could contribute to the team

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Skanska USA Building (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    I was brought to the company by a recruiter. The interview process with management was very good. I met on 2 separate occasions first with the person to whom I would directly report then with 2 members of my office's senior management. Both interviews were very informal, conducted over a meal. It was a good opportunity for me to get to the company as well as the company I was going to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • There really wasn't a difficult question - it was a very informal process. The most difficult question was do I want the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much negotiation. I told them what I wanted to be paid and they agreed. Looking back I probably should have tried to negotiate additional vacation time as I took a reduction in time to come to this company from my old company.
