Very Easy Interview

Project Engineer Interview

Project Engineer
Denver, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Whiting-Turner in March 2014.

Interview Details – I was recruited on my campus and had an interview there. A few weeks later, I was asked to come to their Denver office for an on-site interview. All of the interviewers were very kind and kept the atmosphere light and entertaining, but the interview process was unorganized and I got no formal explanation of benefits, start dates, salary bracket, etc. I interviewed one-on-one with everyone in the office and then went to lunch with the interviewers and the few other interviewees. I had a late flight out of Denver, so I waited in the conference room for the rest of the afternoon.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Whiting-Turner.

Interview Details – They came to my school to recruit. I had one interview with 2 project managers. The gave me a call a few days later and said they would like me to spend the summer with them. The whole process was very informal which was a relief. Other companies make you interview with HR reps which can be a draw back.

Interview Question – Questions regarding ethics. This is a strong point of the company and they want to make sure the people they bring onboard have the same values.   Answer Question

Project Engineer Interview

Project Engineer
Baltimore, MD

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Whiting-Turner.

Interview Details – After a phone interview, I was asked to come down to Baltimore to their headquarters for further interviewing. The whole interview was about 5 hours after speaking with multiple people in the office, visiting an active site, and then going out for lunch. It all seemed very casual and I can't recall having many typical "Interview questions"

Interview Question – Didn't have any stereotypical interview questions that I can remember.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. I was offered a position right after the interview and really wasn't expecting it so I didn't know what to say.
