    Rounds of interviews. Found at my Career Fair. Great communication and very open throughout the process. Long and challenging, but really a great introduction into how much DPR cares about their employees embodying their culture.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DPR Construction (Austin, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Process consisted of 1 round of interviews at the local office. The interview was a round-robin style and lasted for 3 hours. Each mini-interview lasted 30 minutes, some with newer employees, some with upper level management, some with HR, and some as groups. Each person/team had a different topic to interview me about so it was not repetitive. I received a call about an offer about 1 week after.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at DPR Construction in September 2015.

    Interview

    College career fair:

    I spoke with one of them at their booth after standing in line, they were pretty friendly, and gave me a call back to set up an interview at the career fair that day.

    Overall, the five people sitting in the booth were quite friendly and seemed like people I'd definitely want to learn from and work along side. They really reinforced my perception that DPR has a great company culture of friendly people.

    Unfortunately, I did not get an offer. Two weeks passed after the career fair and they sent a rejection email.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DPR Construction (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Interview process was sort of a rotation. We met up in Austin's Pizza, I rotated around different tables to talk to different people. A lot of really stereotypical interview questions were asked.
