    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time

    Pros

    Great projects, great people. Team work is important. Employees really care about the quality of work.

    Cons

    Compensation should be better and more competitive for employees. Especially those who have tenure.
    There are a few "bad apples" who do not work hard and will take other people's credit, Unfortunately this is not unique to Clark.

    Office Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bethesda, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethesda, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Clark Construction Group.

    Interview Details

    The college recruiting process was very engaging. If the position was for a job site, the engineering background if very important. If it was for an office position in finance, the development group, or legal, recruiters wanted very intelligent college candidate with some background to real estate, construction, finance, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Explaining why Clark will add to my career, and I can add to the organization, when my educational background did not fit the typical mold. I was not an engineer and had to sell myself from several different perspectives   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Clark refused to negotiate the campus hire offer.

    However, 3 years later when i was offered what was a phenomenal position for the business and industry, which required me to me half way across the country for 5 years, the negotiation process was not an open and communicative process. It was very stressful. I was not provided basic terms about the position or even if it was a promotion or lateral move. When I forced the questions after several months of talks, I was told to look for a new job if I believe I am worth more. I left the first 3 weeks later after receiving offers from all their top competitors.

    I believe that was a unique situation and a result of one individual who has been with the firm for years, did not get the C-Level position he deserved, he did not grow as the firm grew and thus the firm out-grew him. When I announced why I was leaving the CFO, CAO, and Deputy General Counsel (all of whom I worked for) personally apologized for the gentlemen's behavior. I would go back to Clark if the opportunity was right. Loved it there.
