    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hensel Phelps (Orlando, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a brief 20 minute phone screen to get to know you and understand your skills. Round robin interview style when you get to the district office for an interview. 4 30 minute interviews with various levels of management. Very relaxed and everyone was kind and easy going. They are not going to drill you with questions. They just want to make sure you will fit in well with the company.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Willing to relocate is of the utmost importance to this company, as well as most other large companies in our industry...cold feet...other options. Deadline to respond to the offer seemed too close. Needed more time to make up my mind.

    Interview

    I interviewed with four interviewers, each one at a time. I thought i did really well on my interview but i got shocked when i saw that i was rejected. Emailed them to know why i was rejected to improve my skills for my future interviews, but i didn't get any response back which i think its unprofessional to ignore my email.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hensel Phelps (Irvine, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a two stage interview. Stage 1 was round robin type interview in the local office where I met with 5 people. If you make it past the first stage, you move onto a two-day interview the following week. The second stage consists of site visits as well as activities meant to get to know the other applicants as well as the current employees you might be working with. The second day is strictly interviews where again they use a round robin style. Here you meet with 4 or 5 of the higher ups in 15 minute interviews for about 4 hours total with breaks in between. After a week or two you know whether you will receive an offer or not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hensel Phelps (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very round robin style interviews with company upper management. The experience was very challenging and some what intimating because you interview with the district VP and operations managers they ask a lot of questions about your work experience and your personality to see if you are a company fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hensel Phelps (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.

    The interview was with five operation managers. The questions were unlike any other interview I have had in they past in the sense that they were not asked by HR personnel. All of the questions were field and experienced based. No trick or psychological questions here. Very smooth and went by quickly.
