    First part was done by a recruiter over the phone and was asked questions I wasnt prepared to answer. It was very fast passed and not much time for asking questions or to organize your thoughts. It felt more like a screen of my skills than anything else.

    Environmental Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ninyo & Moore (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    The process is very informal. Because of the downturn in the economy in Las Vegas since 2009, if you get an interview, you will likely get hired. Because Las Vegas is a small market, most potential skilled applicants know the failings of Ninyo & Moore, leaving only unskilled or unqualified applicants.

    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ninyo & Moore (Denver, CO) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Seemed like a professional place to work for. I was so happy in the beginning of interview, but I should have paid more attention when the 2 Administrative personnel seemed so unhappy. AS if they wanted to give me a warning to " please save yourself - find something else". I had my driving record checked - this took about a day. A background check is also performed. Interview with Manager and Administrative personnel lasted about an hour. They mostly wanted to see my personality. After we were done, they introduced my to everyone in the office. They only asked me if I had construction experience and of course I did. I was offered the position a couple days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Just one - If I had ever worked in the construction industry. other than that Manager was describing the job responsibilities of the position.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ninyo & Moore in January 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty informal and unsophisticated. It is apparent that there isn't a lot of structure and thought behind the cookie cutter, one size fits all approach. Receptionist are even asked some questions meant for Engineers. Be sure to meet the owner so you really get a flavor of how you will be treated. No background check or drug screen. All you need is a decent driving record.
