    Technical Support Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Assistant Field Engineer Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple. The interview process was minimal as I started as an intern for nearly 8 months and when an full time position opened up for a new project, I was offered the job and took it.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Skanska USA Building in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Might have been the best interview process I have been apart of. Instead of those standard behavior questions and STAR technique questions, they ask questions solely based off your resume. It is complete open dialogue which gives you the opportunity to be completely honest about your experience. There was none of the head down writing notes while you talked; it was complete 100% attention paid to everything you said. The interview was not intimidating and it was very fair. It gave you an opportunity to see management styles and how the company operates.

    Also, expect to have follow up questions based upon the answers you provide based upon your experience.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Just be honest about your experience, skills, and behavior. Identify your weaknesses and strengths.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very fair and straight forward.
