    Pros

    A challenging environment where people are given the opportunity to grow. The company is employee owned and promotes and maintains a great culture. Competitive compensation and significant long-term financial benefits.

    Cons

    It's construction, which sometimes requires longer hours. The company is conscious of this fact though, and makes a point for its people and teams to identify ways to strike an effective and positive work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Since I have been with the company I have seen a consistent focus on listening and responding to its employees. Keep it up!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Hensel Phelps Construction (Irvine, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I first applied online in January and received a rejection 2 weeks later. In March, Hensel Phelps was coming to my school to have an information session. I was contacted approx. 4 weeks later for a first round interview at their San Diego office. The interview consisted of 3 separate 15 minute interviews with Project Manager, Superintendent, and finally Operations Manager. Very straightforward. Hiring process was quick from then on. I was invited 2 days after the first interview for a second interview at the district headquarters in Irvine, CA. There was about 16 interviewees from different backgrounds. We were all given a schedule of what room to be in at what time and who our interviewers were. This stage consisted of another 3 separate interviews as well. It followed a "speed-dating" format. Received an offer a week later.

    Straightforward questions. Interview was very conversational and was more or less driven by how you frame your qualifications and what you want to highlight that would make you a more desirable candidate. They really wanted to make sure I was a good fit based on my personality, work ethic, and motivation.

    Advice: BE YOURSELF and have a genuine conversation.
