    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    I received the interview by having a conversation with a recruiter at a career fair. The interview was the next day and they did not ask any behavioral questions. They wanted to know my experiences, how those experiences would help the company, and why I wanted to work for Turner. Internships with Turner are very competitive but if you can answer those three questions well, you have a good chance.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Turner Construction in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process included conversations with multiple figures within the company. The first was a face to face conversation with an HR representative that visited our campus during an employment expo. The representative took a hard copy of my resume and contacted me a few months later with an invitation to speak with a superintendent employed with the company which also happened at my campus. The interview materialized into an offer for an internship. During the internship, I met with numerous other figures including site employees and office leads.

I was told I would be reimbursed for gas (I was not) and after going through the entire interview, I was told there would not be an opening for another 6 months, but they would hold onto my resume in case there is an opening that I would fit in.

    YouthForce 2020 Internship/Scholarship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Turner Construction in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Turner is an advanced company especially in the construction and engineering field. My first interview with them was in high school, i had two interviews. The first lady was nice, she had glasses and she was kind hearted who reffered me to the second interview. The second lady was also nice as well. However i felt as if she was harsh, especially a student who had interned at two engineering firms previous to applying to this position, had done well on the interview in my opinion, and had a portfolio of engineering work done in life. She is the HR manager, blonde hair, and a little tall.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview Details

    I met Turner at a career fair on my university campus and talked with the recruiters at the booth. I had a very casual conversation about what I was looking for and asked more detailed questions about Turner. From their, the recruiter asked if I'd like an interview and I accepted. The next day, I had an on campus interview with the same two recruiters. These were very situationally based. If you were in this position or this conflict, what did you do etc. From there, I waited a few weeks and received a call to come into the Turner office for a second interview. It was a whole day interview with four, 45 minute interviews in the morning, each with one person. Then lunch mingling with all the employees. Then a visit to a project site. Overall, it was a very good experience regardless if I get the job or not, because it helped me get a better feel for the company.

    Interview Questions
    • The toughest questions were about situations where conflict arose and how I handled it, especially in a team setting. And I had to be very detailed about the thought process etc.   Answer Question
