    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Aecon in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the university I study in. They contacted after 3 days confirming they received my application. After 2 week I got email saying my resume is still under review and they will contact me within 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks a senior manager called me and invited to his office for interview.

    On the interview there were 2 senior managers including the one who called me. The next day after the interview they called me and offered the position.
