    Pros

    Young staff, excellent management, newly renovated office in great location downtown, lots of growth opportunity and project management exposure and opportunity for engineers and coordinators, alike.

    Cons

    Construction is a sprint-and-stop industry by nature, and there is no exception here; some weeks are incredibly busy and you can expect to work extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and empowering young project managers, engineers, and coordinators; your support goes a long way during the grind of a project.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Swinerton Builders (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Extremely corporate and impersonal I felt like they were just putting us on an assembly line and being run around the job sites. Afterwards I really questioned whether Swinerton was the right company for me or if I was just eager to get an internship.
