    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.

    Interview Details

    Met at a career expo. Hit it off with recruiter. Received a follow up interview the next week. Interview wasn't intense, and asked all of the typical questions, but was slightly formal in comparison to other companies. I honestly expected an offer the way he was talking, but received nothing, while I know others who did receive offers.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Very structured interview, split into resume review and behavioral question. Answers to questions were written down as I answered them. Recruiter seemed rather emotionless which gave the entire interview a rather uncomfortable feel. Picked two items from my resume and asked me to tell me about them, with minimal follow up questions. During the behavioral sections the recruiter said to answer the questions with as much detail as possible, and that he will be looking for specific answers.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college career fair, and took them months to make decisions, but yet they wouldn't tell you if you were declined - you have to find out yourself. And it took them 5 months to get me my reimbursement to interview back (it was 600+ dollars) after I kept bugging the HR. Don't like this company.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Turner Construction in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with an on campus interview. Some what laid back with a few simple questions about my resume. Got invited to second round interview about a week later. Second round consisted of a dinner with Turner employees and about 10 other candidates. The next morning we all interviewed with about 6 people in the office. The office interviews are very laid back. Their main goal is to see if you are personable and that you would get along with everyone else at the company. Express your interest and be personable and you will do fine. Received an offer about a week later.
