Project Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Denver, CO
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
Application Details

I applied through college or university. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - 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"

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was at my college career fair, had a brief introduction and some questions about my resume, lucky for me, the recruiter had already had a look at my resume from their database, which I had submitted weeks before the fair. Had a phone call a week later to come to their headquarters in Baltimore. It was a semi formal interview, very pleasant, easy and informative. I had already come prepared by researching about the company and practicing ways to show my passion for the construction business.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Whiting-Turner.

    Interview Details

    Very informal. I was interviewed at this position as a recent college graduate. They have called me up in their Chantilly office and conduced several informal interviews, then I headed out to the actual job-site to talk to the actual folks working out in the field. In terms of the interview style at the job site, it was very informational and still casual. I was walking around the job site with the Project Manager asking different questions and about the job site. After this brief job site visit, they also took me out to lunch to talk more in great detail about possible opportunities at Whiting-Turner. Again, it was very casual as if they were trying to assess whether I could be a fun co-worker or not.

    Overall, very easy and relaxed process. Just be prepared to talk about yourself with passion in Construction Management, and it will be fine!

    Reasons for Declining

    I was looking for some other opportunities.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview at my college and then another one a couple months later in their Baltimore office. They have actual project managers interview you, which is nice. There was one man at college. Then when I went to their office I interviewed with 3 people for a half hour at a time. After which they went over their benefits and details.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Whiting-Turner.

    Interview Details

    Initial interaction on campus; then trip to Baltimore to interview. Spoke with Division VP, VPs of two groups, and multiple PMs. Interview process lasted from 9am-4pm. Conversations were light; if the company brought you to their location they already trust in your abilities but they want to get to know you as a person. They stress that they only hire Project Engineers and then promote from within the company so most of their employees have been with the company for 15+ years.

    Interview Questions
    • Hardly any typical interview questions were asked. Conversations mostly revolved around getting to know your personality. They did ask what other firms you were interviewing with and several people continually asked if I had family in the area/ was I willing to relocate if they were to offer me the job.   Answer Question
