    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McCarthy Building (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Interviewed with multiple people through multiple interview days. Was asked questions about how I manage projects, work with people and what I'd like to do next. They were focused on finding out if 1 - I could do the job, and 2 - if I fit in with the McCarthy culture. I'm glad they took the process seriously, because it was a big decision for me too.

    Construction Project Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McCarthy Building (Austin, UT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I met with the recruiters at the job fair. After about two weeks, they reached out and scheduled an in-person interview with me. Overall, the interview was fine. It felt like I was doing all the talking because the recruiter just kept asking me the same question, "Do you have any questions about McCarthy?". I was informed that I would find out if I made it or not within the week. Yet almost 3 months later, I still haven't heard back form them. I have tried emailing the guy who interviewed me as well as other recruiters numerous times but had no luck. It was disappointing, and I believe rude, that I didn't even a received a formal "no".

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McCarthy Building (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    McCarthy and its Texas Team were extremely pleasant to interview with. I started with a 1-on-1 phone call interview with a TA. The next interview was a Skype Interview (due to my location) with the TA, VO, and Operations Mgr. After that Skype interview, was offered a position and with a tad of negotiating I accepted an offer. The McCarthy team was always prompt, professional, and made you feel like a part of the team already. I highly recommend the company.
