    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed at campus after an overview discussion from a recruiter. They interviewed about 15 students for one internship available. The onterview was at a class room one to one with the recruter and lasted about twenty minutes. They said I would get a call if they decided that I was the right fit. Waited two weeks for an email saying that I was not the candidate they were looking for.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Intense, but great interview process! Start the day early. Meet with interviewers. Have four 30 minute interviews with four different interviewers. Lunch. Then site tour. This is a really good way in my opinion of meeting everyone around the office and get comfortable with everyone.

    Interviewed with two senior Project Managers and then a hiring manager from human resources. Met with all three separately, with human resources at the end. The project manager's were easy to talk to if you have a general understanding of construction industry. The Human resources manager asks typical interview questions about yourself and your strengths/weaknesses.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume in person via my universities career fair. Was contacted via email about 2 weeks later for an interview. First interview was with two younger employees and was very structured. They asked questions out of a packet and wrote down my responses. I was emailed a few days later for a final interview. This interview was with higher ranking, older, employees and was much less structured. It was more of a conversation where relevant questions were asked as the conversation carried on Naturally. He first interview was more based on situations you have previously encountered specifically. The second was more personality and work ethic based.

    Interview Questions
    • First Interview: Name a time where you began a task with good intentions, and the situation went horribly wrong. What were the results? How did you handle it?

      Second Interview: In ten years from now what do you think you will attribute your success to, such as particular traits or morals.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First contact was at a resume review day put on by my university, where a PE critiqued my resume; very professional and very helpful. I then was able to speak with representatives at the career fair, where I left a resume, but I did not think that the rep and I "hit it off" very well, so I was surprised when I got a call for an interview. I had one interview, with two PMs, at the career development center at my university. I received an email the following Monday offering me a co-op position. The whole process, from initial contact to offer, took about 4 weeks.
