    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McCarthy Building (Lincoln, NE) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I met with a couple of guys from the Southwest Division at a career fair in Lincoln, NE. We talked briefly at the career fair, it was very casual and they did a great job of asking engaging, open ended questions. Dinner that night followed with a group of potential interviewees for the following day. The next morning I had an interview with Project Managers from Las Vegas and Pheonix. The interviews went great, they were both from Nebraska so there was a lot of common ground. They made me feel comfortable, to the point where it didn't seem so much like an interview. They reached out to me a couple weeks after they concluded their interviews and offered me an internship in Las Vegas!

    Overall, it was a great experience, and I can not wait to get to work with them!

    They held an infosession at my university and had people sign up for interview slots. I had my interview the next day.

They just asked about my past internship experience at the other firm.
