I applied through college or university - interviewed at Turner Construction in April 2010.

Interview Details – I attended a NSBE Conference in Dallas, TX where I interviewed or an entry level position. The interview went well however I expressed that I was interested in positions in Indianapolis, IN or Philadelphia. My interviewer said that we would see if he could put me in contact with that office. About 3 weeks later, I received a call from HR in the Indianapolis office and was set up for a phone interview with the VP and Operations Manager the following week. After the phone interview I was suppose to fly in for an in person interview, but instead I got a call and was presented with an offer.

Interview Question – The interview as pretty straight forward.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was just coming out of college and based on research the offer was accepted in my eyes so I didn't do any negotiating. I had to relocate to the new position and received a stipend to help with my move which was very helpful.

Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Turner Construction in December 2013.

Interview Details – Initially had a 1-on-1 interview at my University, which led to a call-back for another. The second inter I was flown into one of their head offices and was told that the first night will consist of a dinner meeting and in the morning I will be subjected to a 6 hour interview with a panel of roughly 8 people. It turned out my whole interview process took 6.5 hours to complete and with that I was completed.
The interviewers had pleasant things to say about the company, and their body language, for the most part, said the same as I talked with them. Some interviewers were a bit more relaxed in how they interviewed, whereas some were more cut-and-dry with their questions. They all seemed very into the company and I got the vibe it was a strong team-driven workforce. Overall it was a long interview, but they did pay for my travel expenses right away and the people there were extremely kind and knowledgeable about the company.

Interview Question – What exactly do you think you can bring to this company?   Answer Question
